Wedding of Alysha Wheeler and John Henrikson

The beautiful outdoor ceremony was alive with music as the couple exchanged vows to a joyous gathering of family and friends. At the reception, a slideshow was shortened to make room for a “Dancing with the Stars” mock video where the couple discussed the big first dance they were about to perform, a medley of styles choreographed by the bride, a professional dancer. The night was full of performances, from world-class salsa dancers to a groomsman pas de deux with a professional ballet dancer. Photography by Joanne Distaso Photography, jodistaso.com.
