WOW… There are a million words I could use to describe Jack & Allison’s wedding day, like ‘perfect’, ‘magnificent’, ‘grand’, ‘classic’, ‘romantic’, ‘joy-filled’ – the list goes on! There is nothing like a couple that loves God, loves each other, and is surrounded by family and friends who vow to love and support them in their marriage.
I knew that September 8th was going to be a gorgeous day, not only because of the incredible venue, the stunning florals, and all Allie’s details, but because of who Jack & Allie are as people! I loved getting to know them better during their engagement session back in May, and I’d been looking forward to their wedding ever since! I also knew Allie previously, as she had been the Maid of Honor at her sister’s wedding, which I photographed back in 2016.
When I arrived at Great Marsh Estate, it was cool, cloudy, with a slight breeze. I took Allie’s detail shots outside, and the weather just couldn’t have been better! It felt just like fall. As the day went on, the threat of rain got a little bit bigger, but Jack & Allie decided to still have their ceremony outside on the North Courtyard. Even though it started to rain during the ceremony, I think they couldn’t have made a better decision!! It was absolutely stunning, and a little rain never hurt anybody ;)
This wedding was a little bittersweet for me, because it is my very last wedding. You can read more about that decision here. I am so excited for the things the future has for me (like getting married myself in 42 days!!), but it is definitely a little sad that this chapter of my life and business is now closed. I truly could not have asked for a more amazing couple to have as my last bride & groom, and I am so thankful for them! How wonderful it is that my last wedding is also one of my absolute favorites now <3
I am so excited for you all to see these images, as they are some of my favorite that I’ve ever created! A huge thank you to all the vendors listed at the bottom, they truly made Jack & Allie’s wedding day perfect from start to finish. Congratulations, you two!
