Oh where to start? We were a little extra excited for Alice and Levi’s wedding day because it was the very first wedding the ENTIRE Mallory McClure team was traveling to together. So, Brooke, Lilly & I packed our sandals and hubbies and made the trip down to Cape Charles, Virginia to spend the weekend in a beautiful Victorian rental and photographed Alice and Levi’s perfect day. Although it was September the weather couldn’t have been better on the little island. It was quiet and peaceful and the most un-touristy beach we have ever come across. People were mostly getting around the island on bicycles and golf carts and that relaxed “vacationy” feel carried into the whole day. The couple was as laid back as they come and put all their trust into us and our crazy ideas, meaning we were able to drag them across the entire island all day for the best of photos – all the while feeding us scrumptious food and entertaining us with their fun personalities.
As Ryan and I pulled into Cape Charles, you could almost touch the peaceful vibe that oozed from this charming bayside town. The moment we pulled up to the ceremony site, I smiled in anticipation for our girl to finally marry the man of her dreams. The rehearsal went as I’m sure most of them do, smoothly and quickly. The gentlemen were reminded of how to hold their hands, the bridesmaids were professionals, and Alice’s sweet niece made sure that everyone knew she was Auntie’s star of the whole show. After we all took in the breath-taking sunset over the bay, we joined our favorite Pitt couple for rehearsal dinner. Here, Levi’s youngest brother read a quote by a “very famous published author, his third grade self.” After he brought the house down in tears with his final sentiment of “everyone should have a brother like Levi,” the other speeches all seemed to revolve around that word, finally.
The next day was a perfect sunny day with the bay breeze giving relief from the warm sunshine. Alice was cool, calm, and covered in cat prints as to be expected from this sweet, self-proclaimed “crazy cat lady.” Alice’s crew of ladies were over-flowing with excitement that this amazing woman was FINALLY getting what she has wanted for so many years. Levi’s excitement was written all over his face, but he and his boys kept busy doing what they love most, hitting golfballs. What sticks out to me the most, is not just the amazing day or how much fun we all had, but the true testament to how much this couple is loved. There were people from Altoona, Holidaysburg, Ellicot City, Ohio, Washington, Colorado, and our own little slice of heaven in Central PA. Levi and Alice love their friends and family so well that when people received those gorgeous blue and gold invitations, there was no question of whether or not to go, because we were all in! They had been anticipating this day for years, despite Levi’s constant reassurance that they would get married in 2017, they just wanted it to happen NOW! But as we have all learned from these two, good things come to those who wait and we all had waited a very long time for them to become the DeLoziers, with a capital “D” and “L.” ; )
Levi and Alice, thank you. Thank you for choosing Mallory McClure Photography to document your beautiful day. Thank you for inviting my husband and I to attend your momentous occasion and including us into your amazing circle of friends and family. You’ll never know how truly honored we all were to witness this amazing union happen and get to participate in all the festivities. We will drink happily from the most appropriate favor, our “Perfect Blend” coffee mugs, and cheers you both every morning. We love you and cannot wait to see where your adventure leads. Congratulations to the moon and back Mr. and Mrs. DeLozier!
