Allison + Neal
November 16, 2019
Windsor Road Christian Church
Allison, Neal, and I initially met at the cutest little bakery in Champaign, and I instantly knew that I would be so lucky to work with them on their wedding day. They both had the easiest smiles and the most infectious laughs. Allison's parents joined us, and I had a clear view that their day was going to be perfect. They were so happy, confident, and easy-going throughout the whole ceremony planning process. It was a complete joy getting to know Allison, Neal, their families, their friends, and even their vendors.
I coordinated Allison and Neal's Wedding Ceremony at Windsor Road Christian Church in Champaign, IL. At their rehearsal, I worked with their photographer and officiant to walk them through their ceremony and make sure everything flowed smoothly. We made sure the photos of the couples walking down the aisle would be perfect, made sure the ushers knew the seating plan and had enough time to read the readings during the ceremony, and even made sure Neal knew which hand to put Allison's ring on (ha ha!).
The morning of their wedding day, Allison and Neal got ready in different rooms at Windsor Road, and opted for their first look to be when Allison walked down the aisle (which made for a few high security bathroom trips!). They read letters from each other separately before their ceremony. During their ceremony, their officiant (a longtime friend) and had the nicest speech, and their ushers read their readings wonderfully. They had a receiving line as their guests exited, and the prettiest Grand Exit as their guests blew bubbles while they walked to their car. There were a lot of moving parts, like any ceremony, but it all went off without a hitch. Thank you, Allison and Neal, for allowing me to be such an important part of your wedding day!
