Ally & Dean were married in 2017 at Rochester Golf Club & Resort, in Lakeshore, Ontario. We documented Ally’s sister’s wedding a few years earlier and then last year we captured her other sisters wedding last year…so to say that we love Ally’s family is an understatement! They are so much fun and they know how to put on a party! Ally & Dean we love you guys! Thank you for making us one of the family!
BOY MEETS GIRL
Dean and I have a lot of mutual friends so we knew of each other for a little while. He is a local tattoo artist, so when my friend and I decided to get a couple of tattoos one day, we went to the shop he was working at. When my friend and I left, she immediately said, “Oh my gosh, he’s in love with you!”
BOY FALLS IN LOVE WITH GIRL & PROPOSES
On the first warm day of 2016, Dean was acting very unusual. I knew what was up, especially when he suggested going to get ice cream where he first asked me to be his girlfriend. We went and were relaxing by the river, where he got down on one knee and popped the question!
VENUE & LOCATION
It was important for us to have the ceremony and reception at the same location. My vision was “reds and greys”. Our venue has pops of red with a modern look to it. It was perfect! A good friend of ours is an amazing chef who was currently in charge at Rochester Golf Club & Resort at the time. It made the experience that much better.
ALLY & DEAN’S FAVOURITE MOMENTS
Dancing all night! Anyone who knows my family knows we love weddings because we can all dance together. I specifically remember Party Up by DMX being particularly rowdy. Also, when we got back to the hotel room, we sat and ate leftovers while looking at everyone’s social media posts from the night. It was so fun to see what everyone was posting and doing during the night! It was nice to reminisce and relax, just the two of us as husband and wife for the first time.
ALLY & DEAN’S FAVOURITE DETAILS
I loved the arbor we got married under. My husband built it and our florist decorated it so beautifully.
There is a reason why your wedding day is made to be such a big deal. It truly is magical! People (including yourself) will remember the emotions they felt during the ceremony, if the food was good, and if they had a fun time. Don’t worry about the small stuff. Enjoy yourself because it will fly by!
WHY ALLY & DEAN CHOSE US TO CAPTURE THEIR LOVE STORY
You guys captured my sister’s wedding and we loved the photos from it! Your photos are very crisp and clean. You both are extremely comfortable to be around during a stressful time, You are both professional, friendly and welcoming.
