Where do I even begin about this AMAZING. DAY…
Alison and I actually met through my sister about 6 or 7 years ago, and we all had the same mutual friends. It wasn’t until the beginning of this year that the two of us sat for coffee to discuss one another’s wedding plans that we realized how alike we are (and how alike our future husbands were!)
Plus, Danny is Ukrainian so… naturally, we’re all family now.
When discussing her wedding, I threw out the idea that I was completely free in September, and I saw the weight drop from her shoulders completely. “I didn’t want to ask you because I know you’re busy but I’m so glad you said something!” And thus began our absolute incredible journey of the Churchmack wedding plans.
Now, with my husband and I’s new best friends, we walked through every aspect of how their day would be and we counted down the hours until it was finally here. We designed the shower and wedding invitations together, we recommended florists, we hashed out the timeline. I truly felt like I was getting married a second time, and it was awesome!
September 29th ended up being a perfect day - especially weather-wise. It was a warm autumn day under a gazebo overlooking the Amherstburg channel, followed by a sun-kissed session amongst the haustas, and candle-lit dinner with roses and champagne. These two could have not asked for a better day to look back on.
Every little detail was so beautiful, which matches both personalities (and looks, hello!) on Alison and Danny. I am so thrilled I got to not only be a guest, but their photographer as well to witness their nuptials.
