Hello!  Hello!!!  I am so excited to share Ally & Luis’s wedding on the blog!  It has taken me a bit to get this ready to blog because of its super fabulousness!  And it is fall which equals busiest time for photographers :)  Ally is part of a group I call my wedding girls :)  Because when it comes to weddings these girls know what they are doing!  They pull out all of the stops!  And they help each other put together incredible weddings!  Ally & Luis’s wedding had a travel based theme, because that is what they had to do to be together after they met!  The two of them traveled all over to be together and they have traveled all over together as well!   And some of Luis’s family traveled from Ecuador to be at the wedding!!!!

They were married at the Elms in Excelcier Springs, a perfect place for their out of town guests to stay and enjoy the weeekend.  Well, mother nature threw us a bit of a curve ball (she must have know that Ally could handle it) and rained almost the entire day.  We did see a few minutes reprieve here and there which we quickly took advantage of for photos!  I think it is impossible for me to blog all of the details to this wedding!

Ally & Luis are such wonderful people to be around.  They are kind and have humongous hearts.  I have had such a great time hanging with them before  and during the wedding.  Allyson is sweet and super fun!  She even gave me a super cool suitcase when we met to plan her day!  I have used it for a few shoots already!  Thank you !  Thank you!!!  And Luis, well Luis is a cool cat.  He has so many different interests from dentistry to music and photography!

I will start with Ally’s dress!  It is so beautiful and the beading was so intricate!!!

love the map cuff links!!!!

my super cutie assistant Amber got this awesome shot of the boys hanging out!!!  I just turned her loose with the camera and she did great :)


Here are the first of some of the details!  I have to say the map mobile was one of my favorites!!!!  And the swedish fish, since Ally’s dad is Swedish!

The coolest save the dates I have seen!!!  Love the passport  Save the date!!!!

Everyone heading for the ceremony!!

This is the first time Luis saw Ally on their wedding day.  Seriously I can’t look at this without tearing up myself!!

I have to say that their ceremony was such an endearing warm ceremony.  I loved that it was a small church packed to the brim with warm romantic lighting and beautiful songs sung!

right after the ceremony we had about a 2 minute window of no rain.  So we shot as many wedding party pics as we could in that time!  Nothing like being rushed, lol!

I believe these cookies and treats are from Ecuador honoring Luis’s heritage.  And heart map stir sticks?!?!!?!  LOVE!!

Luis and his other girl :)

beautiful girlies!

handsome boys!

another quick moment break in the rain :)

This shot makes me ready for winter.  It is so cozy and romantic by the fire :)

Also coolest place cards EVER!!!  Luggage tags!!!!  And each table was named after a city special to them!!

There were a few great surprises in store for Ally during the reception!  Starting off with her father singing to her and Luis!

Ally was completely shocked when Luis joined the band with a little horn playing followed up by a song serenade!!!!

Me and my girls!!!!  I love all of these brides :)

We ended the night with some sparkler fun!!!  There is never a sparkler session that isn’t an awesomely good time :)  Congrats to you both!!!!!  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness :)

While I was going through all of Becca & Adam’s photos of the day deciding what to put on the blog to tell their wedding day story in 30-40ish images, I was drawn in by the secret smiles and looks.  I say secret because while I could see emotions in those looks at each other and little smiles they would give each other in certain moments, they weren’t meant for me or anyone around them.  They were meant for Adam’s bride and Becca’s groom.  In those looks and smiles it seemed as though everything around them disappeared and left them alone in their own private moment.  I feel privileged to have captured some of those moments they will have for the rest of there lives and no doubt their children will someday look at these photos and know how in love they are in the photos.

This was also my first time photographing a wedding at 28 event space and I have to say it is one of my new favorite spaces!!!!  I am a sucker for dreamy twinkle lights and there were plenty of them!!  And a pool table and an awesome place to get ready and even stay before or after the wedding!  How awesome would it be to have a little suite to stay in after your wedding night or have a slumber party with all your girls the night before!!!!!!

And a big think you to Amber for assisting me and keeping me organized :)

Did I mention how amazing the flowers were from Beco Flowers!  BEAUTIFUL!!!

If you have ever had a photoshoot with me, you might know that I die to get red or blue in photos……well, I was dying here :)

The lovely ladies :)

The boys were certainly fun, this is the blog acceptable shot of how fun they were :)

Oh how I love this shot~and the story that comes with it 😉

So beautiful!!!!!!

Not going to lie, I loved this and have used this fun game at weddings after this :)

And here comes the bride :)

A little reminder not to lock your knees during a wedding ceremony, they almost had a man down :)

They kind of made my job easy 😉

Congratulations!!!  I am glad you didn’t see any sharks while you were surfing on your honeymoon!!!!!
