After working together for three years as youth directors, Allison and Aaron went on their first date. A year later, Aaron took Allison up to Linville Gorge. They strayed off the path to take in the mountainous landscape on Wise Man’s View. While she was lost in the beauty, Aaron got down on one knee and asked her to spend forever with him.
One that Perfect day, she said YES.
Their wedding took place the following July at First Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, NC, the same perfect place where Allison’s parents had wed thirty-six years earlier. Allison and Aaron were married by four reverends, all of whom are especially close to their hearts and had impacted their lives.
Our perfect Poffie bride was escorted down the aisle wearing an A-line Essense of Australia gown adorned with lace over royal organza, illusion sleeves, and a dramatic butterfly back. She completed her look by wearing her mother’s veil. After the ceremony, the bride and groom headed over to the Schiele Museum of Natural History to celebrate their newly recited vows with friends and family. For their first dance as a married couple, they swayed to Ellie Goulding’s “How Long I Will Love You”, the Perfect Song.
Dreaming of the tropics, the new Mr. and Mrs. set off to the Sandals Resort in Halcyon Beach, St. Lucia for a few days of tranquility and romance, the Perfect Trip.
For date night, Allison and Aaron enjoy going to the movies, camping, and spontaneous adventures.
Allison’s advice to brides to be is to make sure you have what you want at your wedding because it is your day, and to remember question what is really important, the wedding or the marriage? For grooms to be, she says to enjoy the wedding planning process, and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
Everyone at Poffie Girls wishes you years of perfection!
