The MacDonald Family

Don't get confused here. This is not a mere family session. But rather a beautiful spring wedding that included one very touching ceremony (we may have both teared up) that marked the start of a new family for this couple.

We were so happy to be part of this day as Alanna and Russel got married this past May at Lago Bar & Grill, Dow's Lake Pavilion. You learn a lot about a couple when you spend their wedding day with them, and by the sounds of the words from their families and friends, these two are one sweet couple.

During the ceremony, Alanna and Russel included their daughter with an affirmation of their new family; their symbol of this to her was a necklace. Jon was able to snap a few photos when she went back to her seat and showed it off to her fellow flower girls.

Their kissing game brought the couple to new heights, including the traditional Jewish dance, the hora - a dream for the bride, even though it was not a Jewish wedding.

...and the night went on from there!
