They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. For James + Ally, we did the clear skies dance all morning hoping that the clouds would clear up just after their ceremony. (and it was my Birthday wish, which came true!) James and Ally are just adorable together! You can see how they truly are the best of friends and this day was such a celebration of that friendship and their deep love. From the very moment we met them we knew that this was going to be a stunning and amazing day! Like several of our couples, James and Ally wanted to keep their wedding more traditional AND NO FIRST LOOK. While some people might not like that, we love when our couples stay true to what matters most to them!! They both really wanted that moment when she walked down the aisle and it couldn’t have been any more perfect.
Style: Ally built her whole inspiration around her love for blue hydrangeas. She found the perfect powder blue for her bridesmaids and it complemented their bouquets to perfection. The entire day was full of classy and traditional wedding touches, from beautiful calligraphy, to the Canfield Casino, Ally and James knew how to throw and fabulous party. Ally’s dress is another something super special as it was a completely custom design from Modern Trousseau. While dress shopping at Lily Saratoga, Ally fell in love with the fabric on one gown, but she didn’t love the silhouette so she had this stunner made and a pocket square out of the same fabric for James. She looked absolutely stunning. Everyone had a marvelous time and we loved capturing every bit of this celebration!
