While winter seems to be dragging on we are certain that beautiful lush greens are in sight! For now, we will relive Allison & Zach’s Creeksbend Golf Club Wedding!
Allison & Zach while both being MN natives, met of all places Iowa State during their junior year of college!
Allison : “We closed on our first house together and Zach left to go get a pizza. After 45 long (and hungry) minutes, Zach came back with a pizza asking if it looked “too cheesy”. The pizza had “Marry Me” in pepperoni on it! Dad jokes and pizza are a big part of our relationship so it was perfect for us and the best first memory in our new home!”
When we asked Allison what her most anticipated moment of the day she was most looking forward to, her answer was an easy one!
Allison: “Definitely the first look! I did not tell Zach anything about what my dress looked like, how I was doing my hair, or anything! So we both were anticipating that huge, private moment between us two. We opted to only have the photographers and my personal attendants present during this moment, and it made it extremely special!”
So…was it everything you anticipated?
Allison : “We were overwhelmed with love, excitement, and awe. Zach could only get the word “wow” out, meanwhile, I blurted out that the name of my dress was Della (like our dog). There were so many tears and big smiles! It’s something that we will never forget!”
Allison & Zach wanted their wedding to reflect their easy going relationship and they did just that! The burgundy and gold color pallet with navy touches was stunning, especially with the gorgeous backdrop of Creeksbend Golf Club!
We loved Allison’s dress as it just flowed with her effortlessness and beauty and she just radiated all day! So of course we love hearing the YES to the dress stories, here is what sold Allison on this Wtoo Della Dress from A&BE Bridal!
Allison: “Prior to dress shopping, I really loved the Watters and Wtoo lines. There was something about the chic, classic, and elegant dresses that caught my eye. I went to a&bé bridal shop in Minneapolis because they carried these lines and had the best experience. I actually ended up falling in love with the Wtoo Della dress because I felt comfortable and confident in it- and it’s actually the name of one of our dogs! It was meant to be!”
They had an outdoor ceremony and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect! All the decorating was done by the couple! Now that is a DIY’er right there folks!
Allison: “We did all of the decorating ourselves and had a few DIY project in there, as well! Our FAVORITE decoration was our custom LED sign that was behind us at our head table. We wanted something fun and unique that our guests would remember! We loved the look of burgundy cheesecloth table runners and gold mercury votives with greenery, so this was the majority of our decorations. All of our signs were DIY projects done by Allison and her sister-in-law, Kayla! We also incorporated Allison love for wine and had wine barrels at the beginning of the aisle.”
Allison I think said it best when I asked her if she had any advice to other couples planning their weddings.
“Take a moment to yourselves! During the reception, people will be pulling you in every direction because they’re so happy to celebrate with you- but make sure you take a step back and admire all of the love that’s surrounding you! During the dance portion of the reception, around 9pm, we stepped out onto the deck and just watched the dance Toor for a minute. I became overwhelmed with emotions and cried (for the 100th time of the day) just watching everyone have fun! It’s amazing to see your wedding come together and be surrounded by so much love and support!”
We absolutely adored working with these two! They just absolute head over heels for each other and have so much love for their friends and family! We wish them all the best and of course ton’s of cheesy Dad jokes 🙂
