Virginia Wedding at Murray Hill

Allie and Max said “I do” on a May evening at Murray Hill with all of their family and friends present to witness. The flowers in the garden were blooming, the warm breeze was blowing, and the cicadas in the trees were singing….the sights and sounds of summer.

One of the most special moments of he evening occurred while Allie shared a first look with her father. Mr. Smith was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma cancer several years ago and is currently in remission. Allie told me prior to her wedding day that she was grateful that he would be able to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. I could tell that it meant the world to him to be present for his daughter’s wedding.

Prior to their ceremony, Allie and Max shared a first look next to the private pool. Allie walked through the gate leading to the pool and her soon to be husband. Thankfully, there were handkerchiefs on hand. Afterwards, we spent some time in the garden among the peonies for bride and groom portraits.

At their reception, the couple surprised everyone with a first dance that included spins and lifts. Their surprise performance must have involved lots of practice! Everyone danced into the night to a live band and took photos in front of a neon sign that was lit up especially for Allie and Max.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Whitticar!
