Emotional + Fun: Alyson + Tim's Wedding at St. Andrew's Church + Mountainview Manor

Alyson and Tim were married on a gorgeous fall day.  It was the perfect combination of sun and cloud cover all day which led to a spectacular sunset just before their reception began.

It was an emotional day for all.  Alyson tried to be strong as she cried her way down the aisle and almost lost it again during her vows.  It was in these moments when we saw just how much in love Alyson and Tim are.  Through her tears down the aisle, Alyson smiled when she looked up and saw Tim smiling back at her.  As she was speaking her vows, he calmed her down with a reassuring smile and an, "It's okay".  She took a breath and completed them.  At the end, they were both nothing but smiles as they kissed and walked up the aisle.

They had a fun, fist pumping entrance to ACDC followed by a beautiful first dance spent snuggling and smiling at each other.  Just when you thought the tears were over, Alyson's maid or honor gives her toast and almost has everyone in tears again.  This time Alyson comes to the rescue with a quick bit of comic relief, "You're not so tough now".

Their fall theme brought things you might expect, like fall color selections, a Halloween candy bar and leaves, but one fun and unexpected touch was legos.  Their cake featured a lego theme with lego bakers hard at work, some on ladders and some with wheel barrows, a lego bride and groom and a lego nurse and firefighter.  Alyson also made lego apples for the top of their sweetheart table. 

Their reception was aglow with orange uplighting supplied by DJ Bri Swatek.  It was just the right way to set the mood for their fun, fall reception!

Here is a clip from their wedding to share the love and joy of their day!

Lexie's Bridal Prep in an Artist Loft

Lexie was so excited for us to see the artist loft location for her bridal prep.  We were excited about the possibilities for really cool shots we could get there.  When her wedding day came, no one was disappointed.  This was a very unusual choice for getting dressed for a wedding, but thinking outside the box is the recipe for something really special.

This is a clip of Lexie getting ready and the first look with her groom, Mike, in the artist loft.  I'll probably post another clip from this wedding, but it may take me a while to decide which other clip to post from this beautiful, unique and very personalized wedding.
