Allison & Tyler: First Wedding of the New Decade

Allison and Tyler's wedding was a perfect way to start off the new year! The new year is a time to stop and reflect on our lives, assess our priorities, and hopefully, adjust our lives accordingly. In a lot of ways, their wedding was a reminder of just how important this is. Allison's dad has been fighting a difficult battle over the past year, and in many way's I'm sure it has been a constant reminder to his family that our lives are short, and that it's incredibly important that we do everything we can to appreciate and spend time with the ones we love. It's interesting how life's challenges help put things into perspective.

Watching Allison's dad walk her down the aisle was one of the most beautiful things I've seen in a long, long time. The entire room gasped when he stood up out of his wheelchair and took her by the arm. There was hardly a dry eye in the place--in fact, I'm getting choked up now just writing about it!

As for Allison and Tyler, it's just amazing to me how much they love each other. They are some of the most gracious, supportive, giving, and caring people I know, and no mater what they face in life, I am confident that they will always come out stronger.

Allison & Tyler, it was an honor to be a part of your day. Thank you. ~ Gerald & Airika
