Oaks at Salem Wedding | Alison & Cory

I am so excited to share Alison & Cory’s Oaks at Salem wedding day with you! It has been so fun getting to know them both over the past year from their engagement session and of course Alison’s bridal session. Their two son’s kept me giggling all day long from their hilarious antics. They photobombed the flower girl as she was making her way down the aisle, threw in some serious air guitar moves with the wedding sign during the ceremony, and sent an awesome chorus of “ewww” and “gross” as Alison and Cory shared their first kiss. They definitely knew how to keep things interesting!

After Alison and Cory enjoyed a sweet first dance, Alison stepped up for the dance with her dad and cue the tears. From the second “Butterfly Kisses” came on and I saw Alison and her dad dancing, I was crying all over my camera (a mild occupational hazard… but it was so perfectly sweet! Then, with huge smiles on their faces, the music cut, and they burst into a choreographed dance together that was adorable. Everything came together and it was the perfect day, and I am so glad I was able to be a part of it. Congrats to you both!
