Allyssa & Britt's peacock-themed wedding was filled with so many beautiful moments with family and friends! It was such an honor to capture these moments for them and witness their union at the Crystal Lake Golf Club.
When I showed up at the hotel to capture Allyssa and her girls getting ready (Andy was with Britt and his wedding party, capturing all of them getting ready) they were all working hard on turning Allyssa into a bride, laughing and popping champagne while perfecting everyone's hair and make up.
Before we left the hotel, Allyssa approached me with a card and told me that she wanted to do a special first look with her mom before her first look with Britt. I was so excited to surprise her mom with this special moment between mother and daughter, and it was such an emotional moment for the two of them!
Britt and Allyssa's first look was so sweet and full of excitement and love; their ceremony was emotional, personal and heartfelt (and hot .... it was a warm, August day)! Allyssa's dog, Austin, walked her down the aisle and barked in approval at them as they performed their unity sand ceremony.
You could really feel the love and support throughout the day. Here are some of the highlights from their wedding ....
As always, thank you to my amazing husband for being my partner in crime and second shooting this wedding with me!
