Tying the old to the present is an exceptional touch for a wedding day especially when the bride and groom are high school sweethearts. For Allison and Ziggy, who attended their senior prom together, this connection was paramount. Let’s infuse your day with a little warm and fuzzy from their wedding in Washington D.C., captured by the talented Michael Bennet Kress Photography.
Allison and Ziggy met their senior of high school, they attended separate colleges and stayed in touch. Knowing that their connection would not only remain but thrive, they began dating seriously after their graduation. Ziggy proposed in 2013 while vacationing at Allison’s family home. Pretending to take pictures of the sunrise, Allison’s interest was peaked and she joined him alongside the shoreline when he got down to one knew. Ziggy had invited his parents to join them that weekend where the rest of the days were spent cooking and celebrating the next chapter of their love story.
One of a kind touches were found in various elements of Allison and Ziggy’s wedding. Not only a custom dance floor, but a custom floral and candle wall installation that held photos of Allison and Ziggy from their high school years to present along with framed images of both of their families took center stage. Allison wore a glamorous Vera Wang gown. A mermaid silhouette that was perfectly complimented by her six bridesmaids who wore mix and match blushing dresses. With a color palette that shined with a metallic mixture of gold and silver, Edge Flowers toned the hues with ivory and white and a focus on blush every detail dazzled. Allison’s mother assisted with the wedding planning along side Ellen Reines Events to help make her daughter’s day extra special and unforgettable.
There is happily ever after and there is once in lifetime. Allison and Ziggy’s love story is an epic blend of both.
