I have a special fondness for couples with whom I can immediately be myself. Allison & Zack are one of those couples. They are so easy-going, and you can not only see how comfortable they are together, as a team, but you can literally see how comfortable everyone else is around them.
Weather-wise, their engagement session a couple of months ago was quite the opposite of what was in store for them on the wedding day, last Saturday. But the same good humor and grace that I witnessed when we combatted rain showed up in full force for the wedding.
Courtney Tompson was my trusted second shooter that day.
Her bridesmaids were dolls, too. And there was something about this image that I just loved. The calmness, I think.
Back at the ladies ranch…
The bride and groom opted to see one another well in advance of the ceremony. So we had a private first glance moment out at Stephens Lake where the rest of the day’s events were to take place.
How sweet it is…
Back to the pavillion we went to rest up and get ready for the ceremony. I caught this of Allison as she talked with her parents.
Courtney caught this heckuva cute moment with the grandparents, looking over the lovely programs that Allison designed herself. (I think she should go into the business of designing stationery for weddings. Her stuff was soooo good! Had I only found her before I got married!! ;))
A moment Courtney caught that I LOVEEEEE!
And the Mr. and Mrs.!!!
Their first dance had sweet moments…and funny moments… and moments in which Allison rolled her eyes lovingly at her new husband. Such an enjoyment to watch!
The cake was sooooo good!!
The couple (smartly!!) planned some extra time for some “just the two of them” shots. Courtney and I were ecstatic to use up the last rays of sunshine with the newlyweds.
A catch by my counterpart…
Allison & Zack!! I wish you both the best as you embark on a life together. Your wedding was so much fun and I enjoyed getting to know you both. Have a wonderful first summer as married…and here’s to many more!!
