I have known the Alison’s family for a few years now we have kept in touch over the years after I shot Alison’s brother Craig’s wedding in 2015. When I saw in 2016 that Alison had gotten engaged in ((THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH)) – Disney of course. I was soooo hoping she would contact me for her special day. When she did I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to see her family I just adored and also capture Alison’s special day!!
Alison and her girls all got ready for her special day at her childhood home. It was so fun seeing where she grew up and also her getting in her beautiful gown in the room she grew up in. We also took some before photos outside her home they had a gorgeous ever green tree and it was perfect to photograph everyone in front of.
Alison & Ryan’s wedding day was nothing short of magical. Her wedding was at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton Indiana. My ohh my what a beautiful place it is. Perfect for this Princess to marry her prince. They were married under a beautiful pergola with all her family and friends watching. Alison looked absolutely stunning in a dress from Catherine’s Bridal (Cinderella by Alfred Angelo) . Alison’s flowers were gorgeous blue hydrangeas with other pretty blue flowers with crystal Mickey mouse heads place all around her bouquet. Kristina Lynn Floral did an amazing job!!
The Reception was in the main building on the Sand Creek grounds, over looking the gorgeous golf course. It was beautifully decorated for Alison & Ryan’s special evening. The food was delicious, especially the cooked veggies. Not to mention the Sand Creek staff were top notch so nice and always helpful. The wedding cake was a beautiful and delicious 4 tiered cake by Cakes by Karen . After the special dances Alison had a special song / tribute to her late grandpa. It was him singing ‘A dream is a Wish your heart makes’ – from Cinderella then it had him telling Alison how special she is and how much he loved her. There was not a dry eye in the ballroom how incredibly special. The dj for the night Party People kept the evening festivities running swiftly, smoothly and the dance floor was packed the whole night.
Here are highlights of Alison & Ryan’s magical day.
