Allison + Doug’s fall wedding at Boettcher Mansion was so unique and intimate. Their ceremony was personalized to the max, full of special touches like a stone blessing, emotional readings from multiple loved ones, and a dirt pour that included soil from the gardens of the bride and groom and both of their families. One of my favorite moments of the day was the prayer that the couple shared (in lieu of a first look) before the ceremony. Happily, I guarded the door as Allison + Doug said a few words to each other around a corner and cried many joyful tears. It’s ultra-private, behind-the-scenes moments like this that make me so thankful that I do what I do. I was so honored to be involved with their wedding day start-to-finish and experience all the joy alongside them!
