Chelley & Dave's Huntingdon Valley Wedding

EDIT 1/5/2010: Here is a note they sent along:

Mike and his sidekick for the day, Erik, literally had to row into our wedding, but did so with smiles and laughs (even after I was found sleeping behind the couch in the bridal suite). They followed us around with some awesome candids and had some amazing ideas for the artistic side, too!

The engagement session was epic, as well, adding our goofy side and Mike's great eye for location and lighting. If there was one good thing to say about Allebach Photography, I'd be lost... because you can't find just one great thing- there's a million and one.

From the moment you meet Rachel and Mike, the ever dapper punk rocker Elijah (haven't met the twins), and Lady, you are welcomed into a whole new world of wedding treatment- they care about your wedding, your groom and even answer all of Mom's questions.
If they don't have your date available, wait til they do. "Worth-it" doesn't describe the full spectrum of their service and friendship.

P.S. There aren't enough stars in this rating system!
Thank you a billion and one times!!

Chelley and Dave - what can I say. My weddings this year have been amazing and Chelley & Dave did not let me down. The day started out with rain. Not light rain I think it's raining outside - no, more like a hurricane came through and dumped 5 billion gallons on this town. With all the closed roads in the Willow Grove area I almost ended up taking a boat. The wedding was held at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club in Huntingdon Valley, Pa . That was the plan all along (cough, cough). As the day went on the weather slowly cleared up for outdoor photos - as any PA wedding photographer will tell you this has been the year of rain :(.

Enough talk about the weather; Chelley and Dave rocked Chucks, Fun Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, the Dance Floor and the Huntingdon Valley Country Club. I ain't lying. For proof, look at the photos below.

Getting ready for the day.
