They are the kind of people you encounter and wish your paths would have crossed years ago, Dave and Allie are the kindest, sweetest, most laid back duo who showcase true friendship and real love for all the world to see. Surrounded by their friends and family (and a few stray raindrops and gusts of wind) they celebrated their perfect day at Whistling Straits on Saturday. Although mother nature was invited, she decided to show up with some crazy cold and dreary weather, however, nothing was going to stop everyone from making it the best day of Dave and Allie’s lives. The ceremony was moved into the reception area and made for a perfectly cozy and intimate space for Dave and Allie to say their vows and in the middle of cocktail hour, the clouds broke and we were able to truly enjoy some of the beautiful sites that Whistling Strait has to offer! I wished at the end of the night, that I could hug each and every person who played a role in their special day – from their amazing wedding party to their loving families, each and every individual made it a day to remember and one heck of a party! Encountering people like these two remind me of how lucky I am to call this my job, to work with people who I hug with all of my might at the end of the evening, and promise to get drinks in the city soon. I am so special and I am so grateful that I got to play a minor role in the beginning of Mr. and Mrs. Simon. Now, Simon says, go watch that slideshow below!

           An Irish Blessing
    May your mornings bring joy
    and your evenings bring peace.
    May your troubles grow few as
    your blessings increase.
    May the saddest day of your future
    be no worse than the happiest day
    of your past.
    May your hands be forever clasped
    in friendship and your hearts joined
    forever in love.
    Your lives are very special,
    God has touched you in many ways.
    May his blessings rest upon you
    And fill all your coming days.
     …. The photos are incredible!  
    You have captured the love in their hearts!  
    Congrats Allie & Dave!

    These photos are incredibly beautiful! And they capture so many of the special moments shared not only by Allie and David, but by all who were there. And now I am able to experience that love and joy as well. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen so many kissing photos. And each was perfect in its depiction. So much love captured in each picture. I’ll enjoy viewing these many many times, I know. Thank you.
