Alli and Brian actually met one another while attending Rowan University! No, they didn’t meet in class or in the dining hall or by just noticing one another on campus. They met at a local bar and restaurant, Landmark! And no, there totally isn’t anything wrong with meeting the love of your life and college-sweetheart in a bar! Its funny, but lots of our couples have met in bars! So, needless to say, we got to hang out with them and have fun with them at Rowan University for their engagement session last year!
During their engagement session, we heard so much about their wedding, which made us even more excited for the day to arrive! Everyone got ready at The Westin Hotel in Mount Laurel. We arrived to joy and laughter and just pure happiness exuding from everyone around us. Alli’s bridesmaids were so much fun and Ryan had a blast with Brian and his groomsmen. After everyone was prepped and ready to go, we headed to their venue!
Although Alli is obsessed with Disney, she didn’t want a Disney theme per say. She loved the idea of subtle touches, like the little mermaid’s lagoon scene in “kiss the girl” for the atmosphere. Shades of sea green and lilac, twinkley candles, intimate, with touches of sea creatures and coral throughout the Aquarium. We definitely feel as though her vision truly came to life. They had a perfect, one-of-a-kind day at such a unique and beautiful wedding venue.
Alli and Brian chose not to see one another until the ceremony. The look on Brian’s face when he saw Alli for the first time was absolutely priceless. As she walked down the aisle towards him, passing all of the sweet Disney themed love quotes, you could see the excitement on her face build! They had so many sweet readings during their ceremony, but the best part was when Alli sang to Brian. Its not every day one of our brides has such a gorgeous voice that she will sing during the ceremony!
After their I do’s and their first kiss, we got to meet an adorable penguin and then head outside to take advantage of the gorgeous, sunny weather for all of the bridal party and most importantly, photos of the new Mr and Mrs! The love that they have for one another really shined through their photos together. Plus, they make one another laugh all of the time!
Since their wedding date also happened to be Brian’s birthday, Alli had a surprise for him during their reception! Since he loves the New York Giants, she had a grooms cake made for him, and everyone sang Happy Birthday!
