Growing up, many women will tell you they’ve dreamt and fantasized of their wedding from the time they were a little girl. The beautiful gown, the whimsical decor, and the overall feeling of a fairy tale can certainly peek the curiosity of a child who spends hours a day brushing her hair, singing Disney songs, and twirling around the house in dresses fit for a princess. Only later do they realize the true fairy tale comes not from the beautiful decor, but the years of meaningful commitment ahead.
Allie and Jeremy’s Ian Chapel Wedding
Allie and Jeremy recently had their fairy tale wedding at Ian’s Chapel at Camp Lucy, and as you can see…it was stunning, She had dreamt about her wedding for years, and was excited to finally plan with Jeremy a ceremony befitting both of them. They dated long distance for three years, and after realizing the integral part in their relationship their friends and family played to support them, they decided on a truly intimate wedding. It was their wish that those who had been a part of their relationship for the past five years be by their side. They wanted to share with them the celebration of one of the most important days in their life…Becoming husband and wife.
The spot Allie and Jeremy chose at Camp Lucy was perfect for the romantic and intimate ceremony they had envisioned. The guests were able to spend their weekend in cabins on the beautiful property while bonding over drinks, s’mores, and stories by the fire pit. There was romance in every detail. From the sparkling chandeliers hanging above the impeccably decorated farm tables, to the sweet flower petals lining the aisle. But the most romantic details of all were the personal and sentimental ones passed down to Allie from her grandmother.
Allie’s grandparents were married for over 60 years. Clearly knowing the true meaning of a lifetime commitment. Jeremy had Allie’s engagement ring made from her grandmother’s diamonds, which is so sentimental and precious to her. Around her bouquet was her grandmother’s locket with a WWII picture of her grandfather tucked inside. She also had a pearl covered bible in hand that her grandmother gifted to Allie and her sister to carry with them on their wedding day.
Every detail of Allie and Jeremy’s wedding was extraordinarily beautiful. The cake, the flowers, and the dress were straight out of a young girl’s day dreams of a wedding fit for a princess. But as Jeremy and Allie soaked the day in, they looked around at all their family and friends laughing and celebrating their love. It was then that they inevitably knew the fairy tale was not in the material details. Just as Allie’s grandparents proved with their more than sixty year commitment. Jeremy and Allie are most looking forward to the fairy tale journey of their love and commitment to one another.
What a gorgeous day. Being Allie and Jeremy’s Ian Chapel Wedding Photographer was an honor and joy I won’t soon forget!
