Hi Friends!! It’s Thursday and you know what that means…get ready for this one! One of our favorite weddings of 2019 and our very last wedding in 2019 is blogged!! Grab a drink and snack, get comfy, put your feet up and start scrolling! We absolutely adore Allison and Will and had such a wonderful time photographing their intimate candle-lit ceremony at the First United Methodist Church and elegant reception at the beautiful Sutherland Estate!
We love the Sutherland Estate! This 18th-century estate with its six acres of ancient oaks, stately magnolias, and exquisite gardens is the perfect venue for a classic, elegant wedding! The whole wedding from start to finish was absolutely seamless.
Allison’s vision for the wedding was traditional, romantic, elegant and of course, Southern. Let me tell you, she nailed it! From the Groom and groomsmen in black tie, the bridesmaid in black gowns with fur stoles to the black and white checkered dance floor and magnificent florals and wedding cake this wedding had it all. Did I mention the amazing Steve Owens and the Summertime Band !?
SO. Much. FUN!
Allison’s, Ines Di Santo gown came from Alexia’s Bridal Boutique and was made of lace and illusion netting. The train was long and the veil was even longer than the cathedral. She looked absolutely stunning!
Allison and Will opted to do a first touch instead of a first look. They held hands, exchanged cards and prayed together before the ceremony.
The Bride and Groom danced their first song to Cross My Heart by George Strait. It gives me chill bumps just thinking about it! So beautiful!
Allison and Will, we are so happy for you and wish you a beautiful life together!!
