As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of documenting hundreds of love stories, each beautiful in their own way. However, there are some weddings that touch your heart in a bigger way. Allison and Vance’s Harborside Chapel wedding was one such event that left a mark on me.

Allison, the bride, had poured her heart and soul into planning every detail of the wedding. It was evident that she had meticulously thought through every aspect, bringing a touch of soft romance and excitement to the already – stunning Harborside Chapel. Walking into the chapel, guests were greeted with a simple program, photos from the engagement session, baby photos of both the bride and groom and a table to remember those who couldn’t be there to celebrate.

The boys arrived first, minutes before they were told to show up. They were on their game! I hugged Vance, asked him how the morning had gone. He replied, “Good! I’m just so stressed. I’m excited to finally get this started!”

A sun shower lasted for about 10 minutes, ending right when Allison arrived. The only rain that poured that day🙌🏼

Let’s all collectively take a moment to appreciate this woman’s back definition👏🏼 After being complimented on her back tone, Allison said, “Once I knew this was my dress, I started training back 3x a week😆”

First Looks with Dad — always a favorite to capture🥹

The moment Allison was waiting for. After 6 years of writing prayers for her future husband (starting before her and Vance ever started dating), she finally got to give it to him at their First Touch.

This sweet moment

Vance was excited to finally kiss his WIFE that before he was told, he took a step toward her – ready to go before stepping back realizing it wasn’t time just yet. It was a sweet moment and had everyone smiling.

The Just-Married moments immediately after the ceremony are my favorite photos of every wedding🥹
