Ali struggles with a rare medical condition that renders her unable to stand or walk more than a few seconds at a time without being in excruciating pain; but that wasn't going to stop her from her fairytale moment walking down the aisle to her hubby-to-be Ben.
These two share a love for family, each other, and Michigan football (in no particular order) and their day reflected it perfectly!
The couple chose Early Mountain Vineyard in Madison, VA for it's rolling hills, lush greenery and elegant ceremony and reception spaces (and a posh cottage for the bridal suite doesn't hurt!)
After exchanging their personal vows with the beautiful mountains in the background, the couple met their families at the ceremony space elegantly adorned with the most perfect touches of fall color by Steelcut Flower Co.
Once their traditional Jewish ceremony wrapped up with a glass-stomping, "Mazel tov!"-y good time, they were off to dance the night away (and shed a few tears) at their extravagant, romantic reception inside the vineyard's event space. Every table was draped in florals and accented with the warm glow of candlelight that made for a truly breathtaking scene!
Parent dances, toasts, and a traditional hoorah kicked the festivities off before their band, Dance Candy, fired up as the entertainment for the night!
Once the guests had burned off their delicious dinner, Carpe Donut's arrived and served fresh, warm donuts to the entire party!
This was truly an unforgettable experience and Ali and Ben, and both of their families, were so warm and hospitable to us the entire time. Enjoy this adventure deep into the Virginia mountains... and try to not shed a few tears, we dare ya!
