Allerton Park Koi Pond Wedding Mansion Reception
Our first fall wedding of 2016 and what a beautiful one! Jessica and Chris elected to get married at the Allerton Park Koi Pond which is located on the South lawn of the Mansion. It overlooks the Reflecting Pond and the Meadow in the distance. The day was a tad bit warm for late September but not warm enough to dampen anyone’s sprits.
One of the many highlights of the day, the ‘first look’! Chris eagerly awaited Jessica’s tap on the shoulder singling him to turn around to see his beautiful bride for the first time on their wedding day. Jessica selected a really interesting location for the first look, the 2nd floor of the mansion library. Afterwards, it was outside for some beautiful portraits in the Fu Dog Garden. By the time we finished with their family portraits the guests were gathering for the ceremony. The outside ceremony was just a couple hours before sunset. What a beautiful location. The air was still and it was sunny and warm. After the ceremony, everyone went inside the Mansion for the intros. Quickly followed by several emotional speeches given by the parents and siblings. Chris and Jessica had fun playing the “shoe game” and all of the guests had a blast watching their reactions too! Fun-filled dancing ensued after the games and first dances. Overall, it was a great fall wedding!
Thank you Chris and Jessica for having us be a part of your most important day! We wish you many happy years ahead.
