Alia and Austin descended down the escalator to the lower level of the Blue Wing of the Museum of Science, stealing a kiss while their guests cheered them on. This was their first entrance as husband and wife. They took to the dance floor, as their bridal party looked on with joy in their eyes. Alia’s grandfather nervously picked up the microphone. He looked over to his daughter, Alia’s mother, for reassurance. She reached over and pulled a guitar from the case by her feet. Alia’s mother began to strum, as Alia’s grandfather began to sing: “You fill up my senses, like a night in a forest, like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain…”
Alia and Austin interlocked their fingers, pulling each other close. They slowly swayed, as their family serenaded them to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song.” The room was silent, listening to the duo, with the exception of a few sniffles here and there. As the song ended, her grandfather gave her two thumbs up, as she ran over to give him the biggest hug. “You did great Papa – you did great.”
Alia and Austin managed to incorporate dinosaurs in every part of their day, whether it was walking down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song, to literally strutting around in dinosaur heels all day. Thankfully, Lena Mirisola Photography captured it all! Oh, and who can forget their kissing dino cake topper, or more importantly: the dinosaurs that beat extinction and joined the dance party? Alia and Austin poured themselves into each detail of the day, and enjoyed every last minute of it (and every last bite of their chocolate peanut butter cake). Plus, we just can’t get over the two grown men gleefully tossing petals down the aisle!
