On the warm summer day of July 29, 2023, a love story unfolded amidst the picturesque surroundings of Winter Park, Florida. Allyson and Evan, two hearts intertwined in love, exchanged vows in a romantic and modern celebration at the historic Knowles Chapel at Rollins College.
Their magical day began at the elegant Alfond Inn, where Allyson and her bridesmaids spent the morning immersed in joyous preparations. Amidst the laughter and shared excitement and the morning rain gently pattering against the windows, they captured intimate moments on a polaroid camera, creating a timeless keepsake of their shared anticipation.
Allyson and Evan shared a heartfelt first look outside the Alfond. The sun, as if in perfect harmony with their emotions, peeked through the clouds, casting a soft, golden glow on the couple as they read their personal vows to each other. This tender moment, suspended in time, was a poignant reminder of their journey of love.
The ceremony took place at the stunning Knowles Chapel at Rollins College. Bathed in the soft light filtering through the stained glass windows, Allyson and Evan pledged their forever to each other. Their vows echoed through the chapel, sealing their promise of eternal love.
Post-ceremony, the newlyweds led their guests on a short, joyous walk to the Rice Family Pavilion. Here, they celebrated their union with friends, family, and colleagues. The reception was a vibrant affair, the whimsical florals in shades of ivory and blue adding a touch of enchantment to the festivities.
In a delightful twist, the couple had arranged for Kelly’s Ice Cream truck to serve delicious treats to their guests. The sight of adults and children alike, reveling in the simple joy of ice cream, added a touch of whimsy to the elegant reception.
As the evening sky darkened to a deep blue, Allyson and Evan bid their guests farewell amidst a sparkling sendoff. Allyson, radiant in a perfect little white dress, and Evan, beaming with happiness, stepped into their new life together.
Allyson and Evan’s wedding day was a beautiful blend of romance, modernity, and whimsy. Their love story, now forever etched in the annals of Knowles Chapel, serves as a testament to timeless love and elegant celebrations. As they embark on their journey as a married couple, we wish them endless joy and a love as enduring as their vows.
