When Alyssa and Cody met in the summer of 2021, it was through a mutual friend and a text- but they were living in different states nowhere close to each other. Plans changed when Cody, a special forces soldier, was transferred to Fort Drum in New York where Alyssa was working as a nurse. They gave a Facetime date a try and knew immediately they had something special. Their relationship grew quickly, and when it was time for Cody to return to Nashville and prepare for his final deployment, they agreed to move together. The couple’s mutual love of Harry Potter made it easy to pick a location for a post-deployment trip; they headed to Universal Studios, where Cody proposed right in front of Hogwarts!
When it came time to plan their October wedding, Alyssa knew she wanted the Rust & Romance team at her side. “Kathy's eye for decorating is spot on,” she says, “And she loves what she does and does it well. She goes above and beyond with communicating and finalizing every single detail!”
Kathy wasn’t the only person involved in making Alyssa and Cody’s big a day success- Savannah, Kathy’s daughter, was also working hard to get every detail perfect. “They make the perfect duo to overcome anything,” Alyssa says. “Trust me, I had my fair share of hiccups on the day of, but it never fazed me. I knew we were in great hands.”
The happily married couple still call Nashville home alongside their pup, Oliver. Cheers to another happily ever after for Alyssa and Cody- Romance and Rust is honored to have helped make it happen!
