Mcelroy Wedding / by Kendall Whiteley

5 years ago he slid into her Snapchat DMs. On May 25, they slid into marriage on a giant inflatable slide!

When we first met Ally & Andrew, we asked them what they were most excited for on their wedding day. Aside from the inflatable slide they rented for the entire day (I mean, we were ALL pumped for that), they were most excited about the genuine moments. They knew planning would be the hard part but wanted the wedding to be care-free & fun (just like them!). Andrew, being a photographer himself, wanted to be able to look back on these images and FEEL the emotion. We hope we lived up to that! We certainly can feel the love, can you?!

Ally & Andrew chose Relix Variety Theatre in Knoxville TN because of the simplicity of the venue but also the location, which in the middle of the city of Knoxville. The urban aesthetic of Relix paired with the greenery & pops of white in the decor gave the romantic + fun vibe they were going for. Ally & Andrew decided to see each other prior to the ceremony for a more intimate moment. Knowing they had a large guest list coming (who they would dance with all night long!), they wanted to ensure they had some privacy before it all. During their first look, they exchanged letters & gifts. It was such a tender, real moment and we knew it was one they would never forget. That did not stop the tears from flowing during the ceremony. Everyone was ALL smiles and happy tears. Directly after the ceremony, Ally took off the skirt + traded it for a bridal jumpsuit and we were all for it! Seeing the love, joy, fun, and shear happiness throughout the night was truly something amazing to witness! We love our job!
