Allison & Rick at Fairview Park Marriott

This wedding was utterly perfect from the moment I ran in to a relaxed and smiley Allison at the hotel entrance until I packed up my gear and walked away from a crowded dance floor full of hopping, happy people wearing glow necklaces at the end of the night.  Allison and Rick had the best attitude all day long.  They were truly happy, relaxed, and game for anything, and their celebration reflected this.  At one point there was a dance floor “war” between Virginia Tech alumni (Allison’s side) and WVU alumni (Rick’s side), there was a burning couch grooms’ cake, and there were some fully choreographed dance moves to old ‘N Sync and Britney songs.  It was an impressive party, to say the least, and it made me realize how fortunate I am to photograph (and dance with) awesome couples like Allison and Rick on their wedding days.  Congratulations, A & R!  Your wedding was amazing.

The reception space was jaw-droppingly gorgeous thanks to Allison's vision and the talented vendors who made it happen. Wow wow wow.

Allison's dad's toast was hysterical, loving, and proud. There were lots of laughs and tears as a result.

Allison's dance with her Dad was funny, while Rick's dance with his mom was sweet.  :)

There was lots of love for some old school Britney and 'N Sync.
