The CHIC Bride | Welcome Home

Deployments. No matter how long or short, they are tough for everyone involved.

On Monday, I welcomed my fiancè Alonzo, home from Iraq. There's really no words to describe the moment I saw Alonzo but I was completely overwhelmed with happiness. Our photographer Britnee Wheeler is a military spouse that I met right before Alonzo deployed. When she heard Alonzo would be returning home soon, she offered to take some pictures of us reuniting! It was really nice to have someone there with me and to get some great shots!

While we waited, some friends and family called to check on how things were going!

Searching for Alonzo in the sea of families and friends was quite entertaining! 

I want to thank Britnee so much for these photos! These are priceless moments I will never forget.

I'm so happy to have my best friend home! The Adventures of Bonzo will commence.

I wore a dress from Forever 21 (similar in green), BCBG Generation Flats, and of course my R. Riveter bag (made from Alonzo's West Point uniform). 

Britnee is stationed in Fort Bragg, NC. If you would like to Britnee to capture your specials moments you can email her at:

More from the CHIC Bride soon! I will be headed to Chicago this week to finalize some wedding details!! Stay tuned!

Stay CHIC,
