Allison first inquired with me at the end of November of this year! I was a little surprised to hear that she was only getting married in just over a month when she was starting to look for photographers. Granted, she was just engaged this summer and was getting married during a non-peak month, so I guess it’s understandable. Anyway, Allison & Dana’s wedding was simply beautiful last Saturday. They were married at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Inver Grove Heights with a reception at the Embassy Suites in Bloomington. Dana is in the Marines, so he returned just a few days before his wedding! Allison thankfully had alot of help from her friends to plan the wedding. Enjoy the sampling of pictures from their day!
There was a 2nd mirror on the mirror in the bride’s room that was magnified. I thought it made for a cool effect 🙂
Allison has a dramatic personality, so I felt some more dramatic pictures would suite her. I think they did 🙂
Ah, that’s a nice one!
Gorgeous flowers… I loved them!
Dana & his 3-year-old daughter, Mariah. I usually don’t post formal pictures, but I thought this one was too cute to pass up.
Allison nervously watching her guests arrive.
Love this picture!
Allison & Dana choose not to see each other before the wedding. This was Dana’s reaction to seeing Allison for the first time. I love these shots!
As you can see, I had fun shooting pictures of the beautiful church & ceremony. 🙂
They were throwing the petals up into the vents.
This little guy was breaking in the dance floor prior to the dance starting.
Ok… I think these are some of my best bouquet & garter toss shots. Well, at least I think I caught them at the right time.
Thanks, Allison & Dana for making me a part of your day!
