Allie + Dave || Life Defining Love

Its OctOBER?! How did THAT happen?! Whats happening to time?! Remember when you were a kid and you were given mandatory ‘quiet time’ and had to play in your room for an hour? And that hour took forrrrrevvvverrrr? Now it seems an hour isn’t enough time to do anything! It certainly isn’t long enough for a decent ‘quiet time’…  

So summer happened. And it was solid - not only did we hit the jackpot with our couples this year, but we worked with some seriously fun vendors! Over the past 9 years, I’ve fallen hard for quite a few of my vendor-friends and let me tell you, working with amazing and super fun vendors can take a wedding day from ‘Wow! That was such a nice day!’ to ‘OMG THAT DAY WAS THE BEEEEST!!!’ And one wedding that was "THE BEEEEST’ was Allie and Dave's!

We first met Allie when she was a bridesmaid at Claire + David’s wedding last year and we were so excited when her and Dave (not Claire's Dave) reached out to us about creating their film! 

We touched base with Allie + Dave last year over a skype call but we didn't get as much time to talk as we would've liked as they are both Doctors (almost) and have seriously crazy schedules. How they planned a wedding through it all I'll never know ;) We didn't really get to sit down with them and get to know them until a few days before the wedding. Luckily, we hit it off immediately because they're so relaxed and easy going. All day we kept saying to eachother that we felt like guests watching our friends get married and we just happened to have cameras. The best!

About a year ago we had the privilege of filming Chris’ elaborately planned proposal to Jess - and by elaborately I mean CAPSLOCK OMG!!! He set the bar reeeeeal high.

            Chris,

            Thanks a ton!

            Yours truly,

- All boyfriends of girlfriends who have watched your proposal and now have impossibly high expectations

Ever since, we have been so excited to film their wedding! And it didn’t disappoint. These two are so much fun, kind, creative, and impossibly organized (thank you again Jess for all the spreadsheets and diagrams – there are few things in life I love more than a good spreadsheet!)

I feel a little bit sad that after having these two in our thoughts and on our calendar for so long that it’s over! They’re married now. And I’m so happy for them! But maybe… an elaborate vow renewal is in your future? Chris? We’ll keep in touch ;)
