Ali + Chris

Oh, my heavens! We're back with more of Ali + Chris' wedding celebration, and we are aiming to please. We filled you in on the basics of this extraordinary celebration at Lullwater Estate last week, but this is the real-deal, no-holding-back, gush-fest, about all the gloriousness that filled Ali + Chris' special day. The gorgeous images, courtesy of Heidi at Our Labor of Love, are so lovely and take us right back to this intimate and tender day. So special for us!
Dreamy, huh? Heidi's shots are nothing short of spectacular. Really, such a talented lady, and always a treat to work with, it's no wonder Heidi's images of Ali + Chris' wedding were recently featured on Weddings Unveiled.  Take an already ridiculously beautiful property, and fill it to the brim with the most amazing details from vendors that are beyond our wildest dreams, and what do you get? Ali + Chris' wedding! Amy Osaba created the most amazing lush bouquet for our statuesque bride, and adorned the farm tables with fresh produce, bright buds, and fun textures to create whimsical and elegant centerpieces. Blue Eyed Yonder's vintage lounge pieces and farm tables where the perfect fit for Lullwater's historic setting, and Event Rentals Unlimited's vineyard chairs and Goodwin Event's bistro lights created the perfect ambiance for an intimate dinner.
When your life revolves around good company and great food, you definitely know how to host a party. As SIMB's founder, head chef, and co-owner, Alison Lueker-Ritter surely didn't disappoint, filling every nook and cranny of her and Chris' wedding day with delicious food. As guests arrived, they noshed off a beautiful charcuterie display, deviled eggs, and nippy dip, a family recipe that is a staple at Ali's family gatherings. After the sun-kissed ceremony, butternut squash soup shots with miniature grilled cheese and smoked trout served atop beet chips with creme fraiche were passed to mingling guests. Ali designed a four-course meal that featured some of her favorite flavors for dinner, and encouraged guests to swap stories and sip wine for hours under the twinkling lights.
The happy couple skipped the traditional wedding cake and filled their guests bellies with an assortment of pies from Southern Sweets and Sun in my Belly. After guests couldn't bare to eat another bite, they made their way to the patio dance floor and boogied down to Yvonne Monet's mixes. Between piling into the Smilebooth and cutting a rug, Ali + Chris' evening was jammed full of fun, family, friends, and the fondest of memories.
To this fabulous couple and our fearless leader, a million congratulations to you and a wishing you an amazing life full of love and adventures, of the everyday and the epic.
