Scott + Allie’s wedding at The Gershon Fox Room / Marquee Hartford this summer was something that I had been waiting a long time for…! A year before, I had conspired with Scott on their actual engagement… we secured a location (The Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park in Hartford!), timing, the plan for the day, all of it! It all went off without a hitch, everything was perfect! I felt so connected to them both during this entire process since I was there from the very beginning, and to tell you I couldn’t wait for their wedding was an understatement! Allie and Scott felt like family to me, and I just adored the two of them so much, and loved how emotional and loving they were to each other. Their wedding party was so positive and helpful and just bursting with love and excitement for the both of them as well, honestly this day could not have been better! To top it off I got to work with Christina of Celebrations by Christina who is one of the most funny, down to earth people! All of the carefully thought out details were meticulously planned by Miss Allie, nothing was left to chance!

I love this moment during all of the hub-bub where Allie just took a moment to see herself for the first time, all dressed with no one else there but me.

I’m not sure I have worked at a church where they are nicer.. I love that St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church in Hartford!! Scott composed and played the music that Allie walked down the aisle to… I mean seriously!!

As if Scott wasn’t sweet enough… he wrote a special song just for Allie and performed it for her privately before the reception…!

I find that you can learn so much about people during the toasts… and to see how much Allie’s brother cared about Scott was so touching…!!

During the Anniversary dance Scott got emotional watching his grandparents dance, and win! He told me that he always wanted to be like his Grandpa!
