July 9, 2014 — Ally and Adam celebrated their special day in front of family and friends at the beautiful St. John’s Chapel in Plymouth. The ceremony was a special testament to the couples love in an environment that only St. John’s can provide. Shooting photo’s and video in downtown Plymouth was exciting and fast moving, it also gave us a chance to work with our favorite photographers, Samantha and Brian from “A Thousand Words”. Back at St. John’s, the reception in the Grand Ballroom got off to a rollicking start with music from 50 Amp Fuse still one of the best wedding bands we have had the pleasure of working with. Dinner, dancing and music went on into the night and provided a high energy send off to a wonderful couple. Ally and Adam your wedding day was truly amazing and you have our fondest wishes for a lifetime of happiness.
