She Said Yes To The Dress by Alyona Photography
In an episode of Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta (video below), Emma said yes to a beautiful romantic ball gown that made her cry tiers of joy. You see, Emma had gastric bypass surgery and lost a lot of weight but her goal was to lose two more sizes before the wedding day which was in six months. Needless to say, she achived her goal and in a sparkly and fabulous wedding she married to the man of her dreams. From the photographer: These two have an incredible story and a fairytale wedding that was filmed for Say Yes to the Dress! Honestly, having all those TV cameras around made my knees shake. But being on a reality show was a dream come true for Emma. Both Emma and James had gastric bypass surgery and lost a few hundred pounds before the wedding.
My favorite moment of the day was the emotional first look between Emma and her father. Followed by this moment I photographed the gorgeous bride and her adorable bridesmaids. They wore the prettiest gold and pink tutu inspired dresses that just make you want to dance and spin around. What an honor it was to share this special day with this amazing couple!
