How We Met

Evan and I (Aryn) met through mutual friends in Tuscaloosa minutes before he drove all our friends and me in a 15-passenger van to Dallas for Alabama’s season opener against USC. He had just graduated, and I was starting my senior year. Staying very on-brand for us, our first date was to an Alabama football game, and watching the Tide quickly became one of our favorite things to do together.

The Wedding Dress

I saw the dress on Antonio Gual’s website and immediately fell in love with it. It truly was love at first sight. I called just about every bridal salon in town until Ivory & White told me they carry the line I was looking for. Lauriston was literally a dream to work with, and the minute I put it on I loved it even more than when I first saw it online.

Favorite Moment

My sweet brother Josh, who graduated from HHS in 2016, sang and played our first dance song on the guitar at our dinner reception after our wedding in April. It was by far the most special, intimate moment of our day and truly could not be topped. He gave Needtobreathe a run for their money.

What We Are Doing Now

I am the HR manager at Ross Bridge Resort and Evan is in inside sales for O’Neal Steal. We are living in West Homewood and loving it. You can find us at the pool at Patriot Park on Saturdays during the summer and Pizzeria GM for Thursday date night.
