      Last entry is from Renee & Justin who had a perfectly executed day in their very own backyard with a little help from Alexis. “Not so fab: you know it’s funny I am sure there were some things that weren’t fabulous. But they have faded away in the past year and a half. I guess...

      • Sean Bridgeo

        I think my wonderful wife put it perfectly… The day went off with out issue, and every one did a fabulous job! the only thing I would change is the fact one of my groomsmen may have spilled a beer on Nancy… I’m still sorry…ReplyCancel

      • Maureen O'Neill

        Ali and Sean planned such a unique and beautiful ceremony that showcased their personalities and their wonderful relationship. I will always remember their wedding day fondly, from getting ready with Ali in the elegant estate to walking down the aisle as one of the “flower goddesses” to watching Ali and Sean share their fabulous first dance. They’re a fantastic couple who had a very special wedding, captured perfectly by Nancy!ReplyCancel

      • Chris Marcogliese

        I had a great time. I ate some great food, drank some booze, and I got to dance with Mrs B. It was great to see two people so happy. That was a great day.ReplyCancel

      • Tessa McKinley

        Ali and Sean’s wedding was absolutely beautiful, and Nancy’s photography really did it justice. Everything did go perfectly, although I nearly messed it up by being so late! But I just made it- and from the ceremony through the reception it was clear that not only was it a special night, but everyone had an absolute blast!ReplyCancel

      • Courtney McGowan

        Everything about Ali and Sean’s wedding was fabulous, and each time I look at the amazing photographs Nancy took, I’m transported back to that wonderful day! Willowdale has so much natural beauty, and Ali and Sean’s beautiful wedding decor perfectly emphasized this. But, most importantly, everybody at the wedding had an amazing time celebrating the very happy couple!ReplyCancel

      • Jill D'Orsi

        The pictures look beautiful! I love the angle on the forest photo, it makes the light shine nicely on the two of you.ReplyCancel

        These pictures are absolutely gorgeous. Kudos to the lovely couple & I raise my glass to the photographer, excellent job!

        Ali, I love the DIY!!!!!!!!!!!! Those shoes are A+++++ReplyCancel

      • Kristin McCue

        What I loved most about Ali and Sean’s wedding was the fact that it felt so completely true to who they are as individuals and as a couple. I’m so glad they decided to go for it instead of feeling pressured to conform to any traditions. The day and night were truly joyful because we got to celebrate Ali and Sean as a couple.ReplyCancel

      • Joanne Muther-Jones

        The wedding shots were unique and beautiful; a perfect way to commemorate such a special day. Nancy was extremely creative and fit right in to the festivities; her results were so prefessional and expressive, I would highly recommend her.ReplyCancel

      • Kelley Sullivan

        Ali and Sean’s wedding was a perfect expression of who they are as individuals and as a couple. If Ali had a few pre-ceremony jitters, it didn’t stop her from being completely herself that night. She even offered a few of us who arrived late and were standing a little apart from the other guests a smile and wave as she walked down the aisle with her Dad. There was so much joy and love being shared that evening. Congratulations again to Ali and Sean!ReplyCancel
