Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jones!
Allison and Samuel met in a ministry school that they both attended after high school. After a year of friendship and getting to know each other, they went on their first date. She had moved back home and he had transferred schools, so they then began a long distance relationship living 220 miles apart that would last 9 months. "It was very difficult, especially for a brand new relationship, but by our second date we knew we wanted to eventually get married."
After those 9 months, Samuel moved back to his hometown, which luckily was only 90 miles from Allison's home. Six months later they were engaged. "It was New Year's Eve and we were at Nashville's Opryland Hotel. I saw this enormous Christmas tree and asked if we could take a picture in front of it. I had no idea he was waiting for the perfect moment to propose! It was absolutely amazing!"
They continued living two hours apart, and only seeing each other on the weekends for another year while they planned their dream wedding!
The proposal at Opryland!
This simply beautiful and classy wedding was on March 12th, 2016. They replaced the floral arrangements with several candles and it looked amazing! Allison used Pinterest as inspiration for her wedding decor and put her own touch to it.
"My favorite part of my wedding day was when my husband and I saw each other for the first time. It was the only part of the day that I got really nervous about. It was just magical seeing the look on his face when he saw me. I'm so glad we had that emotional and intimate moment together, and that I have pictures of it!"
"Samuel was so excited when he saw me. His face lit up, and we both cried. It was so special!"
