Allyson & David Say I Do | The Peninsula Club Cornelius, NC

Allyson and David had a beautiful summer wedding in Cornelius, NC on Lake Norman. (I am sure you all know LKN is my absolute favorite!) The day started off nice - Allyson was very calm and also very busy! (She made her flowers minutes before walking down the aisle!)

Such a beautiful dress. I love lace dresses...and absolutely adored the handmade details. (The sash!)

The first feel happened while we were waiting for a thunderstorm to pass. Right at ceremony time it poured, and we had to pick a new hidden first look spot, after clearing out all the guests also sheltering form the storm, we had the perfect moment. (The bride peeked at the groom, but David did not! I love the anticipation in the grooms face when we get to do hidden first looks!)

The weather cleared and it was time to start the ceremony! Take a look at these beautiful bridesmaid dresses!

The Peninsula Club has a beautiful reveal spot for their brides - Allyson came to the top of the staircase and David got to look at her from afar - so romantic. 

The handmade (by the brides father)  arbor was a beautiful background for the first kiss. 

Such wonderful happy families we had after the ceremony! 

And the words needed here! They had fun! 

I love the colors of Lake Norman as the sun got low behind the muted tones of her lace dress and blush sash. 

This was a wonderful event - and had a wonderful ending! Our sparkler sendoff was perfect, and the groom and bride left in a vintage 1969 european Mini Coupe. (Driver side on the right!) This was the smallest most fun vintage get away car I have seen - and our groom purchased it. He plans to paint it purple (his most favorite color). Thank you, I loved being part of your fabulous day!
