Alison and Justin! What a gorgeous celebration for a beautiful couple. I have known Alison since 5th grade where we shared the same homeroom and she may or may not have tortured me by telling my crush about my secret love for him. I think I hated her for about two days after that, but fortunately we slowly started becoming better friends over the years through playing a ton of sports together and I'm happy to say that we still remain great friends to this day. Ali approached me to shoot her August Farmhouse Wedding while she was home over the Holidays last year and said she wanted to make sure I also had 'fun'. I looked at her a little sideways, I think, because of course I could never say no to having the honor of documenting her day, but girl, I was going to WORK! If there is one thing about me that I always try to accomplish, it's that I always do things wholeheartedly. I wasn't going to act like a guest at her wedding, but I was going to provide her with some amazing memories that I hope she and Justin and their families are able to cherish for many, many years. I got to spend not only their wedding day with them, but also their rehearsal dinner which was held on a Spirit of the Philadelphia Cruise. What a fun idea!
The wedding day itself was filled with prep in a spacious suite, and lots of love for this beautiful couple. The ceremony was held on a gorgeous summer day outdoors, with the reception being held in the farmhouse itself. Blush pink and cream set the soft tone of the day with pops of Batman (yes, that's right, Batman) details scattered throughout.
We even set up a fun little Batman themed photobooth for guests to enjoy!
My favorite thing about Alison is her determination to make things work and to stand by people for the long haul. I truly think she can always see the best in someone and does not give up on people easily. I think this is an amazing quality to bring into a marriage, and I hope that she is always able to see the best in Justin for many years to come.
Congratulations Alison & Justin! I wish you nothing but the best and hope that you both have been enjoying the past few weeks as newlyweds!
