Ben and Alissa are two different personalities individually but seem to fit together seamlessly. When I first heard that Alissa and Ben were getting married in Farmington, I assumed Farmington, Utah. But when Alissa told me it was Farmington NEW MEXICO I was happily surprised! I grew up in Farmington (New Mexico). Only a handful of people know how delicious Hatch Green Chiles, Si Senor’s sopapillas and how beautiful the radiant sunsets can be. I feel like I could talk to Alissa for hours about home and life in Salt Lake. We grew up just a few miles apart, but never knew each other until we lived a few miles apart in Utah.
These two meet in college at a homecoming dance as a blind date. Well, kinda as a blind date. Alissa was set up to go with a group of friends and her date arranged to meet her at the dance. She meet who she thought was her date at the dance and was having a fantastic time. When her friends let her know that the guy she had been spending time with was NOT the date they set up for her things got a little awkward because she wanted to spend time with the guy she was now with. That guy turned out to be Ben. The two seemed to keep having their lives bump into each other and seemed that they were suppose to spend more time together!
Alissa’s silver belt and turquoise jewelry is very much in the New Mexico spirit. I haven’t seen a belt like this since I was back home and was so thrilled when I saw it!
