My first experience in Nebraska was amazing. Growing up in California I didn’t know a whole lot about Nebraska other than the obvious corn related stereotypes. Yes, there was a lot of corn there, but there was a whole lot more going on there than corn. While visiting Omaha we met some of the nicest and most genuine people you could ever find. Seriously, everyone was so friendly. At one point we needed directions across the border to Council Bluffs, Iowa and we literally got a personal escort there. The hotel clerk also refuted my long held suspicion that Colorado was part of the mid west seemingly ending a long held argument Elissa and I have been having for years. I was wrong. On top of all the super nice people we met we also got to experience a pretty awesome and hip downtown that felt just like Denver minus 2/3’s of the people. As we scoped out The Old Mattress Factory the night before the wedding I found myself feeling so fortunate for the opportunity and was almost too excited to sleep that night.
When we got to Alisha’s room in the morning to take getting ready photos we were pretty blown away. The room was gorgeous! There was a crazy chandelier and the light was pouring in from the numerous windows. It was just beautiful and was a sign of things to come. I could go on and on about how much fun we had in Omaha but I’ll just cut to the chase. Alisha and Alex had a beautiful wedding on an awesome rooftop right at sun down and it could not have been more perfect. The officiant even managed to rickroll the entire wedding during the vows. I don’t really know how this wedding could have been any cooler.
