Six months ago I made the most important decision of my life, and said yes to forever with the man of my dreams. <3
It’s crazy to think that Chase and I have been “The Allens” for half a year already. I honestly don’t know where the times goes! I suppose it just passes you by when you’re on cloud 9.
I truly feel like I’m the luckiest in the world. I can’t begin to tell you in words how much I love this man.. Or even how much he means to me. But I can tell you that without him, I am incomplete. He makes my life come to life, and I can’t imagine my world without him.
So here’s to us babe <3 to the last 6 months, to our perfect day, to our endless future, and our once in a lifetime love. <3
Family is absolutely everything to us. <3 We definitely lucked out in that department! (We also consider our friends family, and are so grateful for each one of them. Don’t know where we’d be with out you guys!) Love you all!
Cutest flower girls in the world! Wearing Bliss Tulle <3
The most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen in my life. <3 My talented friend & florist Madison Murdock (Bloom by Madison) did everything when it came to our flowers! I was so busy planning countless things, and she just took charge! (And I’m so grateful because I couldn’t have picked them better myself!) Madison’s arrangements are just as dreamy as she is. <3
We held our wedding dinner, ring ceremony, and reception at The Manor located in the Riverwoods. The Manor is directly across the way from the restaurant Chase & I went to on our very first date. <3
One of my favorite parts of our wedding day was the ring ceremony. I. love. kids. Have since I was just a youngin myself!
Chase & I wanted all of the littles in our lives to take part in our special day. And we’re so glad we did! THEY WERE ALL SO CUTE!
When the ring ceremony first started, our 10 flower girls walked down the isle with me holding my train. (In fact, they held that baby so tight it was riding up my body haha!) When I reached Chase, they all plopped down on the floor right behind me. I didn’t notice this at first, but when I looked back and saw all of their perfect faces right behind me I wanted to cry.. They looked like angels. The bond I have with all of the littles in my life is unbreakable. I’m so grateful for the relationships I have with these angels. <3
This right here basically sums us up. Hahaa! Us Allens in our natural habitat!
Chase and I both have an obsession with food. We couldn’t decide on one cake, so we had three! Gluten free, delicious, and absolutely gorgeous! Cassidy Budge from Flour & Flourish did our cakes and she was phenomenal! From the taste, to the last detail, every “piece” was perfection!
Jessica Janae photographed our wedding and I wouldn’t of had it any other way! Jessica’s talent is indescribable.. I have been in love with her work for years. If I could have picked anyone in the entire world to document our big day, it would be her. <3 Simply put, her pictures are timeless..
Not only did she capture each moment of our day to perfection, but she kept my mood light and happy when I needed it! She has the best personality and was beyond a dream to work with! (Jess, I seriously love you to death! Thank you for being amazing!)
Another person who went above and beyond their job for our wedding was my hair and makeup artistVivian Johnson. She kept me calm when things took a wrong turn, she kept me fed + entertained, she put up with me when I was being a diva, and she made absolute sure that I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world each time she got me ready.
The way Vivian makes you look and feel is amazing. There’s honestly no better feeling!
We started makeup and hair at 7:00 a.m. & it still looked flawless by the end of the night! There’s no one else I would have trusted to get me ready for my important day! (Viv, thank you SO MUCH for all you did for me! My day wouldn’t have been complete without you <3 You’re one amazing soul, & I love you to death!)
Mark Keysor did our wedding video. To say I’m obsessed is in understatement! (With Mark & his work!) Chase & I could both watch this video over & over again. It takes us right back to this perfect day. <3 I love reliving our special day and seeing all of these beautiful little moments. If you’re getting married in the near future, I HIGHLY recommend having a video done! Nothing compares to it!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who helped make our day a dream come true <3 We love you all! xx
