Wedding Wednesday: The Stanley Wedding

The Stanley Wedding | October 15, 2016 | Photography by: Meredith Sledge Photography

Allison and Davis first met over spring break of her junior year in college at a party held by one of her high school friends. While they were mostly acquaintances while she was back at school, as soon as she graduated, they began dating. On a cold January night, a few days after the new year, Allison and Davis were sitting together in their living room in front of a crackling fire. He got up from the couch, returning with a little box in his hand. He got one one knee and proposed by the fireside, while Allison cried and hugged him, of course saying yes.

Allison and Davis share a favorite wedding day memory of their spectacular outdoor ceremony. Allison walked down the aisle to see Davis and their bridal party, and felt it was truly a sight to behold, surreal and beautiful - like a dream! She'll never forget seeing Davis smiling at her from his spot, with everything out of focus except the sun shining down on her future husband. Their theme was a "Fall Classic" day, celebrated on a sunny October day with plum bridesmaids' dresses and matching colors in rich, bold reds, fiery oranges and golds. Their naked wedding cake was draped in flowers and berries, which made for an elegant yet festive display - and Allison says it was even more delicious to eat with jam and buttercream icing in between the layers! She adds that her flower arrangements truly made her day unique because of the colors, whimsical ambiance and gorgeous centerpieces. The newlyweds wanted to incorporate fall into the day, and between the venue, flowers and food, they had a "next level" wedding.
