Allie and Dean tied the knot this spring at the beautiful Mercer County Boathouse! Although the weather had plans of its own, they still embraced their beautiful day and had a blast with their loved ones! It was a true testament to their connection. They adapted so easily and still smiled the entire day. With a gorgeous indoor ceremony and amazing florals by Jennifer Designs Events, they said yes to forever!
I remember how many different people mentioned how sweet Allie is throughout the day. I mean, she was asking me if I needed anything as we ducked for cover from the rain! I loved how they both bring out the best in one another. It was really special getting to hear her father speak about his baby girl and her new husband, Dean! Their friends talked about their love story and funny memories, too. It was so clear that Allie and Dean light up a room when they’re together!
These two had an amazing hype crew of close friends and family! Their wedding party and guests brought so much amazing energy to the dance floor! It was such a joy to see all of their wedding plans come together!
Allie and Dean met while working at their local high school in the Special Education Department! It was Allie’s first year working there and they become close friends! About a year later they made things official! They both have the biggest hearts and best spirits, so I just know they are incredible teachers who are impacting so many lives every day!
Allie is a total foodie so Dean decided to take her into NYC to visit Chelsea Market for a food tour! While they were there, Allie and Dean went to a cool rooftop bar for drinks. Dean left to get them some drinks from the bar when all of a sudden, Allie saw Dean walking back into the crowded bar with an engagement ring! He asked her to marry him with the NYC skyline in the background and she, of course, said yes!!
Come check out their adorable fall meadow engagement session here!
Thank you both so much for being an absolute joy to work with from day one! It’s been a whirlwind getting to your wedding day, and I’m so grateful you handled the changes so positively! I know you’re going to live the happiest life together – you both deserve it! I’m so grateful to have been a part of your big day at Mercer County Boathouse! <3 xoxo Congratulations, love birds!!
