Groom Reactions

Wedding days are filled with so many emotions from absolute joy to giddy excitement to nervousness, we never really know what each day will bring! However, one of our favorite, heartstring-pulling moments is groom reactions. Those real, authentic looks and tears get to us every single time. and seeing grooms lose it over their brides is something that we never forget. We hope that every single person finds a soulmate that looks like him or her like these lovers do, its one of the most unreal, incredible parts of our jobs.

Wedding Inspo: Bridesmaid Gifts

Summer may be winding down, but wedding season is really starting to heat up for the girl squad at Alicia Lucia Photography. We wanted to give future brides a little inspiration in gifting for their bride tribes. Inspired by Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique's amazing monogrammed bags, we rounded up a few of our all time favorite gifts to thank your gals with for standing by your side on the biggest day of your life. Classic matching robes and jewelry are near and dear to our hearts, but some of our brides have gotten creative with floral rompers, unique t-shirts, and personalized drink glasses! Some brides will even pay for hair and makeup for their girls, a gesture that bridesmaids love! If you're ballin' on a budget, you can always opt for extra bubbly and sweet thank you card, no gift is too small!
