POV: a radiant bride, a love-struck groom, and a day filled to the brim with laughter, tears, and a whole lot of love.


 


From the moment the gents arrived, looking dapper as ever, we knew we were in for a treat.


Ally & Curtis's first look was an absolute tear-jerker, for sure. Not to mention the Lumen Studios captured pure magic as they read their vows privately to each other, with myself and the brides parents watching from afar.

Music was the heartbeat of their day, with a string quartet setting the mood right from the ceremony.

Ally walked down the aisle towards her childhood sweetheart, and let's be honest, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. And when Grandma Beth read aloud during the ceremony, her voice steeped in warmth and wisdom, it was like time stood still.

The ceremony wrapped up with a lively recessional to Bruno Mars's "Marry You", with the newly minted Mr. & Mrs. Holliday hand in hand, smiles wider than the Missouri river.

Immediately following the ceremony, guests moved to the covered dock that sits on the beautiful blue lake, just outside the reception hall doors. Cocktail hour was buzzing, with guests enjoying tantalizing appetizers and swanky bar service, all while the quartet played on.



You should have seen the grand entrance of the wedding party at the reception, announced to the beat of Nelly's "1000 Stacks". Our lovebirds were introduced as Mr. & Mrs. Holliday, and the crowd went wild!


The first dance? Pure magic. "10,000 Emerald Pools" echoed through the room as Ally and Curtis glided across the dance floor. The cloud machine and sparklers kicked in, creating an enchanting scene straight out of a fairy tale.


The night rolled on with a scrumptious buffet, heartfelt speeches, and a dance party that had everyone shaking a leg.


The cake-cutting ceremony? A sweet affair, with Dua Lipa's "Sweetest Pie" as the soundtrack.


And just when you thought the night couldn't get any better, the guests were treated to a dazzling fireworks display over the lake.



Talk about ending the night with a bang!






The last dance, set to Pharrell Williams's “Hunter”, perfectly capped off a day filled with joy, love, and a lifetime of memories.


 

Now, we can't forget the dream team that brought this day to life. The caterers, the photographers, the videographer, the DJ, and the venue staff - each played their part to perfection.


And then there was us, the planning + coordination team, meticulously weaving together the pieces of the beautiful tapestry pieces of their love and commitment to each other.


Ally and Curtis, here's to you.


Your wedding was a dazzling display of love and celebration, and we feel privileged to have been a part of it. As you celebrate your first anniversary, we hope the memories of your special day bring you as much joy as they do us.


Here's to many more years of love, laughter, and happily ever after!
