Allison + CJ’s wedding day at Coppes Commons in Nappanee, IN was absolutely perfect. I truly could not think of two better people. They were surrounded by family + friends who absolutely adore them, and it was quite the celebration! They truly are best friends and I know that incredible things are in store for them as they walk together in this journey of marriage.
The day started off hot and humid, a whopping 85 degrees felt like a heat wave after all of the Spring rain that we had been getting. Luckily, the consistent rain held off on their big day, bringing beautiful sunny skies! I greeted both Allison + CJ with a hug when walked in, gathering up all the items for detail shots. They both were beyond thrilled that the day was FINALLY here!
As the anticipation grew, it was finally time for the first look. Allison and CJ shared the sweetest moment with each other right before the whole crew joined them for portraits.
Then it was time to make it official. The ceremony took place at Nappanee Missionary Church, where CJ’s dad led the nuptial. Their vows were filled with wonderful promises, and a life spent together well-lived, and loved. “Not many get a girl that checks every box on the list, but I got my dream girl.” The room burst out in laughs when Allison said that she could always count on him to make her laugh even at the expense of embarrassing himself.
Huge, HUGE, huge shout out to all the amazing vendors who contributed to their special day.
