What a wedding! I met the sweet couple back at the bridal show last January when Allison came gimping up to me on crutches. Joel Hurley from the Preston Woodall House in Benson was at the same show and sent them my way. Thanks Joel!! We talked for awhile and later wrapped things. They were to have a formal military cadence ceremony incorporated into their 220+ guest wedding.
With so many details at hand, they hired the help of the wonderfully talented, Shawn Schindler of Your Special Day to pull the navy and gold color scheme together. There were so many pretty touches to the magnolia clad wedding which was evident at the altar and on the cake. Flowers by Kelly Odom graced the centerpieces as well as the altar and the navy blue cake(no pun intended as Brett seerves in the United States Navy) was done by no other than Donna of Sweet Memories in Apex.
It was a lively reception as the 6 piece band The Fabulous Shades played on through the night. I think everyone stayed until the end which made for the most impressive sparkler exit.
Best wishes to Brett + Allison! And Brett, hats off for serving our great nation and to the both of you for your sacrifice!
