After Alyssa and her tribe had put the finishing touches on this beautiful bride's make-up and figure out how to attach the veil, it was time for the moment she had been waiting for... She was so excited to marry Alan and when she stepped out the door to make her way to the vineyard where he was waiting for her, a horse and carriage was arriving to take Alyssa to her prince! This was a little surprise Alyssa's mom and dad had planned for their daughter, who in their eyes will ALWAYS be a princess. ⠀

Alyssa and Alan also rode away in this magical carriage to have a few moments of calm after the ceremony and just be completely in the moment of becoming husband and wife. Such a magical way to start the next step of their journey together!

Let’s throw it back to that time Lilly and I ended a wedding season at the beautiful @cameronestateinn ...There was a peaceful snow that blanketed the grounds, lots of happy laughter filling the mansion, bridesmaids who were rocking these glittering dresses, and a very special couple who stole our hearts and the attention of everyone in attendance.⠀

And I mean...who doesn’t love a little white fur, shimmering dresses, and a lace wedding gown!?!⠀

If you see this guy today make sure to wish him a Happy 32! He's our rock and our teddybear. He's there to play and kiss boo-boo's. He's my high school sweetheart and my forever. He's also (thankfully) always smiling and ready for photos even when the rest of us can't get it together. 😊

So here's to year 32, Ryan Pat! We love you and can't wait to celebrate!!⠀

It’s all in the details. I notice and love each and every one of them. Details are what make each wedding unique. I love learning about the reasons behind each chosen one. Oh and the rings, who doesn’t love gazing at these sparkly symbols of LOVE.⠀

You know we love it, don’t you just love LOVE it, too?⠀

I am loving how guestbooks have evolved into a piece of art for couple's future homes. Bryan and Sarah chose one of my favorite sayings, "Love makes the world go round," to showcase their sweet map guestbook. There's just something so special about having the signatures of all your biggest supporters through your relationship journey in ink, forever, as a decorative reminder of who has your back.⠀

Dustin and his crew were so much fun! We often hear about the mixed bridesmaids dresses in the same color family so all the beautiful ladies can show their personalities all while having a stunning cohesive look. BUT these handsome gentlemen pulled off the eclectic style with their ties from @knottytie and pants from @bananarepublic ...maybe it was their constant laughter and chuckles from inside jokes that pulled their style all together, either way, don't you think they look great?⠀

Oh my goodness, ya'll have no idea how much I love my job! (I mean if you have been following along with us for a little while now, you may have some idea, but for REAL!) We started our wedding season with the sweet Leases, @hannahlease and @alease_11 , at the beautiful Two Harts Barn where they celebrated with all their closest family and friends. Hannah and her mom wrote us TWO reviews filled with all the love. I'll share their reviews below; it only seemed fitting to share the first reviews that helped lead us to the honor of being selected for The Knot Best of Weddings for the second year in a row....cue the screaming and jumping with excitement in the studio. So THANK YOU to each and every incredible #mallorymcclurecouple that helped make this goal a possibility. WE LOVE YOU!⠀

"Mallory is the best engagement/wedding photographer in the world! We had our engagement session with her in April 2016 and she shot our outdoor wedding in May 2017. She knew exactly how to pose us and our bridal party, and the photos are more than we could have ever imagined. 10 out of 10 HIGHLY recommend Mallory and Lilly!!" -Hannah Lease, fabulous #mallorymcclurebride

"My daughters wedding is featured in the wedding gallery. These ladies are simply amazing! From just being on the sidelines snapping moments to the more formal, planned shots...they are kind, funny and professional! They helped make a perfect wedding day for my daughter and her new husband!"-DeeDee Dray, beautiful Mother of the Bride⠀

"We did!" ... We survived our most favorite, busy wedding season yet! Seriously, every Tuesday after a wedding @lillyfee091 and I would stroll into the studio to edit and say, "No, THIS one was our favorite." We can't choose. So you're ALL our favorites, 2017 #mallorymccluretribe memebers!⠀

"I dos"... We DO look forward to working with our 2018 couples and getting to know each of you as the days countdown to your big day! We also cannot wait to see what this wedding season brings, the venues we're adventuring to in the next year, the couples who will become friends, and the vendors who will join our friendor list! OH and how could I leave out our Beyond The Vows event that we are already planning for next year...⠀
We're so excited!⠀

Seriously, we love LOVE and cherish each step of the journey. Now, take a moment today and show your love to the one who used to give you butterflies when their name would pop up in your texts messages... Send them an inside joke, a simple emoji, or a long text of why you're so thankful to have them in your life or simply tag them below and share some serious love on this Fabulous Friday!⠀

Last Saturday I packed up the kiddos and we ventured with my momma to Baltimore. I'm not going to lie, the traffic we had to sit in to get there was trying, but later on that day I got to meet up with Dana and Mike and these two lovebirds made it all worth it. After adventuring to @portdiscovery, we headed to Dana and Mike's place. I was oh-so-pleasantly surprised to see some nearby trees still holding onto their colorful fall leaves and when they mentioned grabbing an Uber and journeying to the harbor I was SO excited! But what really left its impression on me that day was the bond between these two. I was captivated as I listened to them tell me about how they met on a high school band trip to Disney World and that no matter the distance that was between them, they found themselves drawn back to one another. And then one night during a midnight walk on the beach in OBX (sand crabs and all!), Mike popped the question. For now they call Baltimore home and are taking advantage of the nearby amazing restaurants and live music. Thank you, Dana and Mike, for sharing your story with me and letting me have a peek into your beautiful relationship! I can't wait for your beautiful wedding day at @harmonyhallhbg in June!⠀

This year has been a year of growth, learning, and centering myself within my business. This space has started to become my little sanctuary from team meetings with my gals @lillyfee091 and @brooketmcclure to Design Sessions with our wonderful newlywed couples enjoying their wedding day images for the first time. It's where I get the pleasure of meeting up for coffee with newly engaged couples looking to become part of the #mallorymccluretribe. It's also where I get to sit down with those couples months later to go over the final timeline of their wedding day and all of the other special details that are necessary to prepare myself to capture their day with perfection. It has been nearly a year since this space was transitioned from my formal studio to this space we have grown to call our little Mallory McClure Photography home. ⠀
Some day, I dream of a bigger space with lots of artwork hanging, a bigger team busily working behind @apple computers, and a huge gallery of wedding images being admired by a #mallorymcclurecouple . As we prepare to make your experience with us bigger and better for the 2018 Wedding Season, our hearts will keep dreaming and we will keep working; until "some day" arrives, I think this cozy little space will do just fine.⠀

And maybe we will start filling it with more green plants, any suggestions? We're still at the novice level in the indoor plant game, so please consider this in your suggestions. Yes, we have succulents. And yes, some are struggling to survive.⠀

Music. It can shift my crummy mood into a random dancing-in-circles, full on Stevie Nicks twirling scarf dance. My high school bestie and I used to go roadtripping in her white Jeep Wrangler and jam out to *NSYNC, Led Zepplin, Aerosmith, Fuel, Spice Girls, Sum 41, and Miranda Lambert. Yes, we have quite an eclectic taste in music. I really feel like what we listen to directly relates to our mood. Sometimes you just need to throw it back to when your spirit was completely carefree and let muscle memory take over while blasting “Tearin’ Up My Heart.” Funny thing, @brooketmcclure and I spent Sunday evening schooling our littles in classic '90s tunes while spinning and twirling with these spunky little people we call our kids. We even tried teaching Natalee and Molly how to Vogue. Have you ever seen a 4 year old box their sweet little face with their tiny hands?? I'll just go check that off my momma-to-do list! ⠀

Anyone with me on just needing that perfect song to flip your mood? What is your mood-shifting song? I may have to make a new playlist on Amazon based off your comments below!⠀

I cannot believe that our final Design Session of the 2017 wedding season is tonight and we get to share it with THESE amazing newlyweds. I could not have asked for a better end, final chapter, or closing to a dream wedding season. Yes, the run of September through November felt busy, but we love LOVE and truly enjoy celebrating each #mallorymcclurecouple that we have the pleasure of documenting their first day of marriage. ⠀

I hope you're ready @emanwilly and @bsarage13 because I cannot wait another day to share these images and relive every moment with you!⠀

Hey all, Brooke here! As I was scrolling through all the gorgeous images to post for you today, this boutonnière just popped out at me. At first, it made me chuckle because I can almost visualize all of you sweet grooms standing with your chins turned and thinking how awkwardly close Mallory or Lilly is to get this particular shot. (Trust me though, gems like these are so worth it!) But then...my brain pondered over to a mental picture that is forever stuck in my head and it is of my dad's wedding boutonniere that he somehow secured in the tachometer of his 1957 #chevybelair on the dashboard. My dad rebuilt his #gold '57 Chevy when he was just 15 years old and we always joke that it was his first love, even though that's a true statement. Anyone who has had the pleasure of riding in the passenger seat while he thought he was #daleearnhardt , knows the feeling of watching the needle climb into the red zone of the tachometer and probably has that same mental picture of staring at the dried rose with baby's breath and just hoping the man behind the wheel would slow down! Now looking back I find it so sweet that he kept a momento from the day he married my mom, in his beloved '57 Chevy.

Keeping your wedding flowers after the big day is such a cool way to have a gentle reminder as time goes on. Did you keep any flowers from your wedding day? How did you preserve them?

How, I ask you, how is this sweet little babe of mine TWO today?! When we were blessed with Emmet and he made me a momma for the second time I didn't realize how much love one person's heart can hold. It's amazing how space is just all of a sudden there for this new person to move on in and take up. The past two years have been nothing short of crazy/beautiful and the older he gets I see more of myself in his looks, in his mannerisms, and his spirit. Happy Birthday, brother bear! We couldn't imagine life without you!⠀

If you look up thankful in the dictionary it will say "expressing gratitude and relief". In my version of Merriam-Webster's you will find this photograph. It literally contains my entire heart and the people I am most thankful for. Without them I would have never come to be who I am today. I am thankful for a loving, supportive husband who is also an amazing father (and doesn't put up too much of a fight when I make him take family photos). I am thankful for my free spirited littles who have given me the best job in the whole wide world, love me beyond measure, and amaze me every day. I am extremely thankful for their constant encouragement and the ease with which they handle what can sometimes be a very chaotic lifestyle. I'm also thankful for my parents, in laws, my team, and family + friends for being my village, because as much as I like to think I can handle it all on my own, I can't. There are so many things I find myself thankful for this season, but lastly, I am thankful for you. Thankful that you follow along with our journey. Thankful for your likes and comments. Thankful for your encouragement and support no matter how big or small. Thank you for being part of the #mallorymcclurefamily and for allowing me into your life. For that, I am truly grateful.⠀
