Allison + Simon's Garden Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographer Lauryn Alisa Photography

Allison and Simon got married on a gorgeous day in August!   We were having a crazy heat wave, but that didn't stop everyone from having an amazing time!  When I first met Allison and Simon, I asked them to describe the overall feel they were going for with their wedding. Their answer was "FUN!", and that's exactly how their wedding turned out.  The night was filled with lots of laughs and the dance floor was full all night!

I think my favorite part of Allison and Simons garden wedding was a very unique part of their ceremony.  They actually passed their wedding bands around to every single guest so that all of their friends and family could bless the rings with their love and well wishes.  I had never seen a couple do this before, and it was a really special moment!

Their flowers and decor were so beautiful! They currently are living in Madrid, Spain, so they used various city landmarks as their table names.  Since Simon is from Germany, they wrote all of their signs in both English and German which was a wonderful way to make all their guests feel welcome.  Finally, they used wild flowers for their bouquets and centerpieces that Allison got from a stand at the farmers market. The flowers were stunning and really stood out!

Since they live overseas, I had never actually met these two before their wedding week.  However, it felt like I had known them forever!  I could tell how special it was for them to come back to the states and celebrate with all their friends and family.  Congrats again Allison and Simon! Wishing these two many more adventures to come!
