Everything about Abbe and Cory’s wedding was breathtaking – the way Abbe looked in her dazzling custom made wedding dress, Abbe’s Jimmy Choo heels as a surprise gift from her mother, Cory looking dapper in his attire, the grand ballroom of the Mayo Hotel, and the vivid colors of their wedding party and floral design. We could go on and on.
The beauty of it all was Abbe and Cory’s love story and just how they are meant to be. They went to the same high school but did not actually get to know each other better until during college. From there the spark turned into a flame. Their love story demonstrates most of all their strong commitment to each other. Abbe had always wanted to be a professional dancer ever since she was young. However, several years ago a massive surgery did not allow her to continue that dream. With Cory by her side and the help of the local Cross Fit community, Abbe was able to regain the strength and confidence that was always within her. Abbe’s determination and Cory’s unwavering love made them even stronger together. Last year, Abbe accepted a job out of state, seemingly turning her relationship with Cory into a long distance one. However, just as they were meant to be together, Cory was able to move shortly after and be reunited with Abbe. For their special day, they were able to travel back and be married in the city where they met and that held so many wonderful memories for them.
We were so honored to document their love story from their engagement session all the way to their wedding. We loved all the laughter and smiles that Abbe and Cory’s family and friends had for them for their marriage. So many moments were beautiful and heartfelt, such as Abbe’s father getting to see her for the first time in her wedding dress, Cory and Abbe tearfully saying their vows to each other, the unique and fun parent dances, and Abbe having the time of her life at the reception, doing what she loves most, dancing. The wedding was an elegant, lively celebration of unforgettable devotion, dancing, and happiness. We wish Abbe and Cory a life full of joy and adventure!
