Allison & James...Wedding

Allison & James tied the knot yesterday. Everything went quite well, even the weather perked up. It was like two different days! Cold, cloudy and windy before the ceremony...hot, sunny and muggy less than two hours later. Father Tony's service was beautiful. James told me he is now over his anxiety about having his picture taken (this is what is great about engagement sessions...plus several hundred pictures on your wedding day ;-). Ally was drop dead gorgeous! Friends and family were so very kind and a lot of fun. I truly had a wonderful time and it was difficult to leave the party....

Since it was such a fabulous day...I had a lot of trouble narrowing down my "favorites" for the blog. And I know I will pick different favorites when I get a chance to spend more time going through the images. So here are a "few" ;-) of my favorites.

We started off with James and his boys...excuse me...men...

Then spent some time getting some bridal portraits of Allison. I LOVE this one...

And for the life of me could not decide on my favorite veil shot. Help me out here...which one is better?

I like this one, over the shoulder with some dress detail...

But this one is so lovely, with those amazing lashes...

And yet I love the colors here...

Nope, I still can't decide. ;-)

Stunning...

I like how the adorable flower girls just happened to line up around Ally by height...makes for nice composition. ;-)

First dance...

Speaking of dancing, this made me tear up. Seriously, started crying. Allison's adorable grandma dancing with each of her sons. They were taking turns, cutting in on each other, and whirling her around the dance floor. You could tell they just adored her...and it made me think of my own kids and how I sure hope they love me that much when they are grown.

I also feel a tug when I see the sleeping little ones at receptions...

aj 26

But my favorite thing at the reception was what appeared to be a mini-wedding. A wedding within a wedding. Here's my mini-me...

And the mini-couple...
