Dockside Restaurant Elopement | Allison + Joe

I’ve shared a lot of different “how I met the bride” stories on my blog. We met at her best friend’s wedding, we met in elementary school, we met through a friend, we met at a wedding show… Well, Allison and I met years ago when I was dating her younger brother. When she contacted me to shoot her wedding, I was surprised and honoured in equal measures. Allison and Joe planned the most epically purple wedding I have ever seen… purple shoes, purple bowtie, purple flowers (made by Allison’s Mom!)… even a purple CHURCH! Being invited to be part of their very intimate day, to meet Allison’s daughters, and to be greeted so warmly by familiar faces was definitely something I won’t forget.
