Ali explained, when she called that she is not photogenic and was really hesitant about her wedding being photographed. I quickly realized at Ali and Russell’s engagement session that while Ali is smart, confident, and engaging- she is way off on her assessment of how photogenic she is. At their wedding one of the girls getting ready with Ali in the bridal suite said: “You can’t take a bad photo of Ali” so I’m definitely not alone in my opinion that Ali most definitely IS photogenic.
Russell is sweet and caring and so completely all about Ali. It was an honor to see these two pledge to share their lives with each other.
Look at the bottom right hand picture. I overheard someone behind me say: “Grandma is going to be so tired but she’s having so much fun!” This woman had all the moves and was a much better dancer than I could ever hope to be!
Ali and Russell told me that the cookies were part of an Italian tradition. The couple brings around this huge pile o’ cookies to share with their guests. The cookies were so yummy! I think this is a tradition that should be part of every wedding!
It was very fun getting to hang out with this warm and thoughtful family.
Congratulations Ali and Russell!
