Allyson told us how she and JB got together saying, "JB and I met when we were kids, a long time ago. Dillon, South Carolina is a small town - so we were around each other through mutual friends and family. JB started attending the school I was at in 9th grade. We immediately hit it off. Finally, in our 11th grade year, we started dating and have been together ever since!"

"We got engaged February of 2015 and before we knew it our wedding day had arrived. I loved everything about our day! I honestly don’t know if either of us could pick out a favorite thing from our wedding. Everything and every moment was absolutely perfect! You know that just about every bride probably hears this and I was told this constantly too, but I would tell any bride to take in every single second of your engagement and wedding. Engagement season will absolutely fly by - JB and I were engaged for 1 year and 8 months. We had an extremely long engagement, and it flew by quicker than ever. Our wedding day was just the same! It flew by, but we had the time of our lives!"

Allyson was a traditional wedding day beauty in her Martina Liana dress from Gown Boutique of Charleston and her hair and makeup perfectly styled by Lashes and Lace! She adored her bridal look and described it in detail saying, " My gown was cathedral length.  It had buttons on the back, and I added more so that they went down a little past my waist.  My veil was even longer than my gown with a satin like trim completely around the edge."

After the wonderful wedding ceremony, the couple and the wedding party got to ride in style in an Exclusive Shuttle and Limo party bus to the reception. They and all theguests had a great time partying the night away with delicious food from Aberdeen Catery, awesome live music from the Flashback Party Band, and an appearance from Cocky the University of South Carolina Gamecock!

The JB & Allyson made their exit from the reception in a shower of bubbles, off to their honeymoon vacation. Allyson told us a bit about it saying, "For our honeymoon, we traveled to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic at the Hard Rock Hotel. It was FABULOUS!"
