Alli & Luke said “I do” at a beautiful, outdoor, summer wedding at Bella Sala in Tiffin, IA. Casey and I split up at the beginning of the day. He went to capture Luke and the guys getting ready at Alli and Luke’s house, while I headed for Bella Sala to be with the girls. I just have to say, I absolutely adore Luke and Alli. They are two of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Plus, they left me one of the most thorough, thoughtful reviews I’ve ever received! (you can read it here.)
After every was done getting ready and the guys had arrived at Bella Sala on the party bus, it was time for the emotional first looks! I loved Alli’s little butt grab to get Luke to turn around haha it’s so important not to take yourself too seriously on the wedding day. Tears were DEFINITELY shed during Alli’s first look with her dad, and it was totally understandable as to WHY because she looked freaking gorgeous.
Then, when the first looks were over, we all got on the party bus and took off to The Voxman Music Building in downtown IC to take pics. Then, it was time for Big Grove Brewery to get a few beers! (Where the girls channeled their inner “Bridesmaids”. ((the movie!))) Once the beers were finished it was time to get hitched! The ceremony was stunning and so full of love, as their dog, Mikey was up at the altar to see mom and dad get married, definitely one of my favorite moments of the day!
The reception was INSANE. Alli and Luke performed the most magical first dance and looked like a Disney prince and princess. Alli then performed a choreographed dance with her dad that involved whipping and nae nae-ing (GOALS AF) and THEN to Alli and Luke’s surprise, Alli’s sisters had arranged a freaking FLASH MOB during their speeches and I swear there was not a dry eye in the room. It was, to this day, the coolest thing I have ever seen at a wedding reception.
I absolutely love these two and hope to work with them again in the future, cheers to Alli & Luke!!
