Alanna & Brett

Aug. 6, 2010 at Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center in Chaska

Alanna Borak's parents always told her happiness is marrying your best friend. Now she's destined for a life of happiness since exchanging vows with Brett Essman in a summer ceremony at Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center. The couple kept a classic vibe on their wedding day, and added splashes of vibrant details to make the day all their own. Guitarist Joel Shapira played all of their favorite Beatles' songs and even learned "Angel" by Jack Johnson for Alanna and Brett's acoustic ceremony music. Congratulations to the newlyweds, who have started new jobs in a new city (Chicago) with their new puppy! Up next for them? A Caribbean cruise honeymoon.
