Allison and David // Wedding / by Ally Willix

It amazes me that I get to be a part of such intimate moments on a wedding day. As Allison read a heartfelt letter from her dad out loud to a few of her bridesmaids and her mom before the ceremony, I was crying from behind my camera just as much as everyone else! Weddings are such special days. They bring family and friends from all over to celebrate together and become one family. They allow people to say precious words that may normally get passed over in daily conversation. They have great dancing and even better food!  And they allow two people in love to start their lives together as one. Allison and David’s wedding was a beautiful example of all of these things and I am so thankful to have been a part of all of their special moments! I hope everyone enjoys these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!

This is the first "first look" with a dad that I've taken photos of and oh my heart was so full witnessing this sweet moment!  I wish I could remember all of the words she read from the letter he gave her, but I do remember that he wrote something along the lines of, "I've kept a picture of you in my wallet all of your life and I am the richest man in the world because of it." That's when the tears from my eyes started flowing!
