Talk about a hot! Ally and Harrison’s Watson Block wedding was a hot-ass affaire, and I’m not just saying that because it was damn near 90 degrees. I mean, come on! Look at these two!!
Our day started at The Hewing Hotel. Now, I’ve been to the Hewing Hotel for dinner once but never have I stepped foot in one of their suites. Holy cow!!! They’re so posh and put all of us in a super classy mood that lasted the entire day.
I love how Harrison’s groom details played with their wedding colors. Lilac, white, green, and gray is one of my favorite color combinations and I love how they came together, especially in all of the florals. I mean…there were freaking LILACS in them! I LOVE LILACS!
Throughout the day, I spied Harrison sneak several glances at Ally. It was so cute because you could tell how excited he was to finally marry her! I lost count of how many times Harrison said, “Can you believe I get to marry her?!” between their first look and ceremony.
From the roller coast ride that is planning a wedding during a pandemic, the joy that radiated off of Ally and Harrison when they were pronounced husband and wife, quite literally brought me to tears. And I wasn’t the only one crying like a baby, lemme tell you. Plenty of tissues were being passed around all day.
I wish Ally and Harrison every blessing and happiness that the world can possibly bestow upon two people. Those two can survive anything life throws their way…in fact, I think that’s true for all of our COVID couples. I look forward to keeping in touch with Ally and Harrison and am excited for their happily ever after! Cheers babes!!

There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
