fabulous/not-so-fabulous….ali and sean || willowdale estate

Next up is an entry from Ali, whose wedding will be featured in the next issue of the knot!

“I was so proud and happy with the ceremony Sean and I created – it was original and it was “us”.  We were able to incorporate all my high school friends (aka “Flower Goddesses”) and all our friends and family during our ring passing ceremony.”

 “I loved the acoustic guitar and we got one of the only sunny evenings in August 2009!  We got our dream outdoor wedding ceremony.  A hummingbird even decided to take part :)”

“I was very happy I decided to wear Clarks shoes – so comfortable all night!”

“Overall I wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere besides the Willowdale Estate — everything worked out so wonderfully.  The only thing I would change would be reducing my pre-wedding jitters (which had nothing to do with the man I was marrying!).  I had no need to worry about things going smoothly — the ladies at Willowdale and my family wedding helpers made it all come together perfectly! ”

Thanks Ali!!

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple… the wedding was just perfect for Ali and Sean, and we all had a wonderful time celebrating with them.ReplyCancel

    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
