I spent a wonderful day with Mary and Jeff and their family at The Allure for their September wedding. I say family because that is exactly whom their wedding party was and I could tell they were thrilled to have them as part of their big day.
I started out as usual in the bridal suite with bridal prep as second photographer Kerrie was with the guys up in the ballroom balcony where they prepped for the day. Schultz Florist did a wonderful job with the vibrantly purple flowers and once again Paris House of Bridal brought the dress. Make Up By Keria tended to all of the beauty.
For the bride and groom’s first look we cleared the ballroom of onlookers and Jeff and Mary had a wonderful moment together as she descended from the balcony to give him a tap on the shoulder. Their embrace was incredibly genuine and heartfelt. It felt great to capture it in images.
After our ballroom wedding pictures we stepped outside The Allure and took portraits around the various old buildings in the neighborhood as well as wedding party group shots. Then it was back inside for the ceremony.
Friends and family were all smiles as the bride and groom made their way into the ceremony area. Their very own “secret agent” kept the rings secure.
While I tended to family pictures, second photographer Kerrie took cocktail hour candids. The reception of course was decorated in purple and saw a singing performance from the couple’s daughter who serenaded them with Can’t Help Falling In Love, the Elvis song. The father of the bride was giving the thumbs up on the dance floor all night and a good time was had by all.
