Real Wedding Wednesday: Alison and Tony


Howdy wedding lovers. Tilley, your wedding obsessed blogger, here to ask you an important question…Can you judge a wedding by the ring? Well, in the case of this knockout, I’d have to say yes!


The equally stunning owner is Alison. She met her groom, Tony, through a mutual friend. During the pair’s first date, they kept each other laughing all night and knew it was meant to be.


She wanted their day to be romantic and the flower girls to look like princesses. We haven’t even gotten to the ceremony and that is achieved. How “Princess Diaries” is this sweet photo of them dancing around?!


Alison said they decided to do a first look because they are not very photogenic. I DISAGREE.


Can I get an “Amen?” PERFECTION, AM I RIGHT?! Seriously, this might be one of my favorite couples portraits ever.


So perfect.


And I know I don’t even have to point it out to y’all, but THAT DRESS! Alllllll the heart eye emojis.


Putting a tulle skirt like these flower girls on my Christmas list. Love everything about this pic! Adorable!


Their quaint ceremony took place at the Regency at Dominion Valley in Haymarket, VA.


Alison’s uncle walked her down the petal lined aisle to her future as a Mrs.


With a kiss, their fate was sealed.


The indoor reception was the epitome of romance. Fresh blooms, silky fabrics, and metallic details.


Another one of my favorite pictures from the night…


…Alison and her maids grabbing a cold one (minus the underage one on the end, lol). Such a fun memory 🙂


Alison and Tony, your day knocked my socks off. Congrats and here’s to many happy years!

What was your favorite detail of the day? “My favorite detail was our wine box ceremony. I loved our ceremony! It was everything I dreamed for and more. Instead of lighting candles candle or mixing sand we did a wine box. We wrote letters to each other telling the other person why we felt in love with one another, we added a bottle of wine and nailed these items closed in the box. The purpose of the wine box ceremony is that if our marriage is ever in trouble we are to open the box drink the wine and read the letter we wrote to each other. But hopefully we never have to read the letters instead we will open the box every 5 years drink the wine and replace it with another wine bottle. I love traditions and I can’t wait to open our box in 5 years!

What advice will you give to a bride to be? “Nothing is perfect and things will go wrong on your wedding day! But you have to remember you are marrying the love of your life and no matter what goes wrong this is your day and it will be the best day of your life!! Don’t stress and have fun! No one else will know what didn’t or did happen except you! Enjoy your day! And make sure you have a great photographer! That was one of the best decisions we made! Kelli was amazing!!”
