Allison & Rudy Wedding | St. Pauls Church | Salem Golf Club | Salem, OH Wedding Photography

Allison and Rudy have something special. To steal a little from the MOH’s speech during their reception: Rudy dated a different girl before dating Allison, and he thought that long-distance (45 minutes) was just too much so that relationship didn’t work out. Then Rudy met Allison at a local hangout when she was home on break from college. Well, it turns out that although they’re from the same hometown, Allison was attending college in Texas. And Rudy had no problem with that distance; he flew down to visit Allison often. He just knew that Allison was someone he couldn’t live without. They did the long-distance thing, and a few years later are husband and wife! Lucky us- we got to share their wedding day with them!

 

I met Allison and her bridal party at her parents’ beautiful home.

Salem, OH Wedding PhotographyThese images remind me of Allison’s and Rudy’s engagement session images: the haze, the loving embraces, and the sunlight. It’s like the sky was just smiling down upon them. I mean, it was December, and we did not have coats on. Lovely.
