This wedding was a long awaited one. When I met Allison and her parents I knew this day was going to be special and it did not disappoint. Allison and Michael are adorable together, the way he cares for her, protects her and lights up when he is near her is inspiring. They are SO good together. At the end of the night I told Allison’s Mom that her own husband is a good man and that her daughter chose wisely because I see in Michael the same genuine kindness her Dad walks in.
Allison and Michael met on a blind date but I LOVE the way Allison tells of her first meeting with “Matt”. 🙂
“For New Year’s Eve of 2014, we were set up on a blind date by friends. The party took place in Dallas. It was a wonderful evening of enjoying the company of old friends and getting to know new ones. We really seemed to take a liking to each other, and agreed to exchange numbers. I (Allison) really felt confident that Michael’s name was “Matt.” Proudly, I entered the name “Matt” into my phone and handed it to Michael to fill in the rest of the information. I quickly learned Michael’s real name. However, this didn’t discourage Michael from pursuing the relationship, and we continued to celebrate the New Years by laughing it off. After New Years, we decided to keep in touch through texts, phone calls, and Skype. Eventually, our long distance relationship became a love story. The rest of the story is history and we are very excited to begin a new journey through life together. To this day, I still have Michael in my phone as “Matt McCall” in remembrance of the first time we met.” – Allison
For getting ready Allison choose to prep in her childhood home with her closest friends. It was so sweet to have her dress in her gown in the room that was her sanctuary then descend the winding steps to the cheers of her bridesmaids! After a teary and joy filled reveal with Dad everyone gathered around and her Mother prayed over Allison and the wedding and marriage that was about to begin. Chills, smiles and some misty eyes were definitely happening behind my camera!
Thanks to all my wedding vendor friends for making this emotional day even better!
