CJ & Ally’s Emotional Wedding At the Bell Tower

The Most Emotional Wedding Ceremony Yet

We always love when our couples choose to have a wedding at the water wall. We were all in tears during CJ & Ally’s emotional wedding ceremony at the Bell Tower on 34th! In almost a decade of photographing weddings, we’ve never seen a sweeter reaction from a groom.

You could just see on CJ’s sweet face that this moment, the moment he saw his bride for the first time, was the moment he’d been waiting years for! What an incredibly special time to witness!

Gorgeous Bridal Details

Ally’s feminine and soft details paired perfectly with her sweet personality. It’s so clear these two are meant for each other and we couldn’t be happier for them! Here are a few of our favorites from their gorgeous wedding in front of the water wall at the Bell Tower on 34th.

Emotional Ceremony at the Water Wall | Bell Tower

Sometimes we’ll have a groom that just truly knows what they want. They want that first look moment to be exactly how they envisioned it and we totally respect that. So much of the wedding day revolves around the bride so when your groom speaks up and has a request it’s so important to honor that.

Grab the tissues and be prepared to soak in this sweet moment during their emotional ceremony at the Bell Tower!
