Alyssa + Nate’s wedding at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Moon, PA was the perfect way to end my 2021 wedding season. Between Alyssa’s reaction when she saw herself in all her wedding attire, to Nate’s reaction as she walked down the aisle, to their complete and utter joy in each other at the reception, this wedding was all things good and beautiful and true.
Also, I’ve just got to say — Polish people are the best. And I don’t just say that because my maiden name is Chodzko. The polka dance, complete with a shot of alcohol, makes that dollar dance just so, so good. And can we all take a minute for cookie tables? I know different heritages all claim that tradition (including the Poles!), but they made my pregnant 2021 wedding season a total treat (see what I did there?).
Alyssa + Nate, cheers to a lifetime of happy tears, to deep and abiding joy in one another, and a life steeped in the traditions of your families.
All the best, friends!
