Trash the Dress: Live, Love, Laugh in Ocean City...

Trash the Dress: Live, Love, Laugh in Ocean City...

Ocean City, NJ has a special place in my heart and not just because it's our favorite family vacation spot. In 2008 my husband and I went there for a mini-vacation that I will never forget. We went for a walk on the beach and there in front of the Ocean City lifeguard boat he popped the question and I said yes! So when I saw Allebach Photography's Trash the Dress post on facebook I knew I had to share their beautiful photos of this lighthearted couple's fun day with our readers. Michelle (Chelley) and David have such a carefree spirit that jumps right off the page and a love that grabs your heart and pulls you close. After experiencing their amazing day together you'll want to be friends with them and their photographer!

Riding Life Together...

Enjoy their photos and words from the bride and then tell me you don't want to be their best friend!

"Our wedding was a blast, but also very sentimental and sometimes somber... Mike captured each photo with a compassionate eye, knowing where each dimple would appear, how each tear would catch the light, and how to photograph the look between a new husband and wife. This photo shoot was no different. I can never stop laughing- mostly because Dave and I enjoy each others company so much, so my smile is easy to catch; Dave, however, is more serious to my silly, yet there is a plethora of pictures showing his pure happiness. Being so comfortable with your photographer is important- with Mike, it's like hiring your friend to shoot your most intimate emotions.

We had our bikes at the TTD session, which was awesome! It's terrible to ride in a dress, but it was so silly and a picture of us shouldering our bikes, is "us" in a photo- no doubt. Dave and I enjoy riding our bikes together, and with our hectic schedules, it's often the only couple thing we get to do on a regular basis."
