Allie and Peter are one of the sweetest couples who I was SO excited to work with from the start! They had originally planned a big wedding for this year, and of course with Covid they had to change their plans.

The wedding

They decided to still have an intimate wedding at his parents house with their immediate families and save the large celebration for down the road. Luckily, their new smaller scale plans were still AMAZING and filled with so much love and all the garden vibes! I love that Allie and Peter opted to do a ‘first look’ and see each other before their wedding. This was such a special moment for just the two of them! After we took portraits of them around The Claremont we all headed to his parents backyard (which was the perfect garden setting!). They did their ceremony with their immediate families and celebrated with their friends over Zoom video.

The design

Allie and I both love bright vibrant colors, and I was in love with their color palette, stationery, florals, all of it! I got to work with my bestie and amazing wedding planner Bari Elexa Events who helped design the wedding and bring their vision to life! Golden Fields Floristry is one of my favorite local floral designers! She created the most beautiful bouquet and arrangements filled with all the peachy, pink, and rosy colored blooms.

Even with all the changes they had to make to their original wedding plans, their small intimate wedding with their families was so special and still just as fun! I am so happy I got to be a part of their celebration!
