The amount of times I teared up at this wedding was unreal. I'm known for crying at most weddings, but there were so many special moments during this day I couldn't keep it together! Allyson didn't want to see Chris before the ceremony but she did want to have a first look with two other special men in her life. Her step dad and her grandfather are obviously so special to her. I loved this moment.

 Allyson + Chris planned a special exit for their parents at the end of the ceremony. Instead of the parents walking back down the aisle by themselves, Allyson and Chris walked up but up and escorted their parents down. I had to include Allyson's mom's reaction. Priceless :)

During Allyson's dance with her step-dad the DJ announced that there was one more special dance that needed to happen. Allyson wanted to share a dance with her Mom (which was obviously a complete surprise). This is when being able to shoot through tears really comes in handy.
