Carly + Andrew | Allerton Music Barn wedding + iHotel reception


I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that out of the hundreds of times I have been to Allerton Park, I never knew that the Allerton Music Barn even existed until I booked Carly + Andy's wedding a few months back. Then following that, I never knew WHERE it was until about a month ago! It's a beautiful old barn tucked back beside the entrance to the park that goes into Monticello. The barn is fitted with some cafe lights and is all-natural wood that's full of character. Carly + Andy's wedding was so full of love and their wedding party was fun to work with! The girls looks fantastic in their knee-length purple dresses, and I used their varying heights to my advantage when posing them! The guys wore gray suits and cleaned up pretty well! :) Following the ceremony, we loaded up the limo, made a quick stop at the gas station for more refreshments and then made our way to the iHotel for the reception where everyone danced late into the night. The DJ had a fog machine which I had some fun with as you'll see from some of the dancing photos below! Congrats Carly + Andy, and thanks for a great day!! Leave a comment below for Carly + Andy and after 50 comments, they'll receive a complimentary 11x14" mounted print of their choice!
