Allison and CJ’s Intimate Church Wedding

What a spectacular fall day we had for Allison and CJ’s beautiful wedding.  The sky could not have been bluer, the temperatures were delightful and the backdrop for this gorgeous wedding was amazing.  A stone church built in the early 1900’s in the medieval style.  The brick and the stained glass windows added such a majestic element to this godly wedding.

There were so many things that made this wedding so memorable for me.  CJ and Allison are special to me because we belong to the same church and our friendship has grown over the past few years.  It’s always wonderful to work with a couple that you already know really well.  I also loved that I knew almost their entire wedding party (my son was a groomsman) and the pastor, Matt Townsend,  who married them is a close friend of ours.  The whole wedding day just felt like “home ” to me and I will cherish it always.

People often comment that they love looking at the groom when he sees his bride for the first time walking down the aisle.  And that truly is a magical moment.  But I also love the moment when the Father of the bride sees his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress.  The moment when Jeff, saw Allison the morning of her wedding was just so special.

 

Allison wore the most beautiful embellished ball gown wedding dress.  She truly radiated!

As Aviva Strings played Canon in D,  Jeff walked Allison down the aisle to her CJ. You could see the joy in his eyes as he beamed seeing her walk towards him.

The ceremony was beautiful and gave all glory to God for what He has done in bringing CJ and Allison together.

I loved these candid pictures of CJ and Allison immediately after they were married.  Betsy and AJ from Mountain Gap Photography did a great job of capturing these moments.

 

The whole bridal party then headed off to Norristown Park for some gorgeous outdoor pictures.

The reception had a fabulous Celtic flare to it.  Fair Trade Band brought the whole Celtic feel to the wedding and everyone LOVED them! Truly such incredible musicians!

Allison chose these beautiful lantern centerpieces.  They added so much to the ambience of the room.

For their first dance as husband and wife, CJ and Allison danced to Love Never Fails by Brandon Heath. It was so beautiful!

This incredible day ended on such a dramatic note. The moon was full and the sky was clear as they danced one more dance in the gazebo before leaving for their honeymoon.

Thank you, CJ and Allison, for letting me be a part of your special day.  I loved every minute of planning this wedding with you!
