As the father of the bride noted, this All Saints Chapel wedding was “a family affair.” Not only were Allie & Paul creating their own family unit, but they were surrounded by their family. The wedding party included siblings, cousins, and the father of the groom. Adorable nieces and nephews entertained me all day. Allie’s grandmother was cutting it up on the dance floor. You could tell this was a tight knit group, and the love in the building was palpable.
The wedding was full of smiles and laughter, just like our engagement session with Allie & Paul last fall. Allie & her entourage got ready at a great VRBO just down the road in historic Oakwood, and then everyone descended upon All Saints for the ceremony & reception.

Um, hello gorgeous! Allie was so thrilled with how her hair and makeup turned out. Gold stars for Jordan with Bloom Beauty. The little braid in her hair is my favorite 😀
How great is this tie Paul got for his dad? <3 And then you see the flower girls delivering Allie’s gift for Paul.
This venue is so purty y’all. I love ceremonies in this space. All the heart eyes.
Officiant Ed Sansbury led the couple through a great cord ceremony, representing the way their lives are intertwining with one another and God.
Our first group photo had almost 40 people in it, so we set up some chairs for a lower row. I just love this image of Allie & Paul freshly married and with eyes only for each other in the midst of family photo chaos. The next image is the happy couple with their respective twins. This was a first for me. Fortunately, I didn’t get anyone mixed up.
Do a happy dance when your reception decor is in place and looks awesome!
Kivus & Camera has a new employee you guys.
That’s a wrap on our Memorial Day double header. I’ll leave y’all with this night portrait of Allie & Paul. I love stealing couples out of the reception for a couple minutes to make magic and let them hug on each other.
