The Hops Company | The Briggemans

October 20, 2018

Each wedding is unique and I really enjoy the personal touches each of my couples puts on their day.

Alyssa & Sean are avid beer drinkers and chose The Hops Company brewery in Derby, CT to exchange their vows and become Mr. & Mrs! You can't beat autumn vibes in New England and you can check out their epic Castle engagement session here. I loved visited this brewery and the beer garden made for a unique location to get married.

The bride and groom met on a college campus and had one of those first meetings that turns into an all day date the next day (ya know the ones you see in movies?!) where the conversation came easy and the feeling as if they had known each other for years.

The ceremony was witnessed with close family surrounding them and the exchange of vows was simple and sweet. The reception brought more friends and family ready to celebrate and I enjoyed meeting everyone making me feel like family too! Thank you Alyssa & Sean for everything!

Cheers to many more years!

All smiles,

Vendor Dream Team
