Alyssa and Jordan picked the Galena Creek Fish Hatchery as the venue for their awesome Marvel themed wedding in Reno. Earlier in the fall, we met at Galena Creek for their engagement session, and it was wonderful to come back for their wedding in May. This area holds a special place in their hearts, so it was a very fitting location.
May in Reno can be fairly volatile…actually any month in Reno is that way! But Alyssa and Jordan’s ceremony plans had to be quickly rearranged due to rain, and I have to say – they, along with their families, adjusted to the backup plans with the most grace I could even imagine.
The ceremony took place in the reception venue at the Galena Creek Fish Hatchery after rearranging some tables, and after the family formals, it rained pretty hard on the wedding party (sorry guys) but then the sun said hello JUST for Alyssa and Jordan. Luckily we were able to get ample portraits done a beautiful mixture of bright sun and diffused light.
I loved so many things about this wedding. One – I’m a Marvel fan (and a fan of superheros in general), so I was beyond excited to see how they brought in the Marvel theme to their wedding details. From the jelly bean wedding favor boxes to the Fruity Pebbles confetti toss at the end of the night, all the way down to the specially made comic book paper flowers for boutonnieres and more – it was SO cool. Two – they had a nacho bar. Three – Alyssa and Jordan are so fun and silly together. And four, just to keep this list at reasonable number – they are surrounded by amazing family and friends…all so friendly and fun.
