5.2.09 West Park Winery Allison & Steve


Allison and Steve couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for their wedding at West Park Winery if they had custom-ordered it.  Just a touch of coolness in the air kept their guests comfortable under the tent all night long.

Photographs are incredibly important to Allison, and she shared some of her favorites with their guests.  Allison and Steve were high school sweethearts who met at age 16, so each table was named for a special place or event in their lives…College, Proms, Vanderbilt…and adorned romantic with photos of the couple at every age.  Allison’s cousin put together a slide show photographic journey with the newlyweds from childhood, the time they met, and growing up together that was shown just before their First Dance.


(You can tell by these pictures that Allison made the right photographer choice in Steve Planck of Blue Sky Photography!)


The tent was just gorgeous with spring wildflower featuring daffodils, lilacs and cherry blossoms.  And it was a tearful Father Daughter dance for Allison and her father to “Then They Do” by Trace Adkins.


SPOILER ALERT:  Don’t read on if you’re soon to be a West Park Winery guest or you’ll ruin the surprise…

This season West Park is including an impressive fireworks display with every wedding!  The sky was lit with spectacular colors, ending with a flaming heart on the hill.

One of my favorite moments of the night came after the cake cutting when we sang “Happy Birthday” to Allison’s brother, Todd.  Once she had Todd up on the dance floor, we sang a few verses and scraaaaatch…slammed into “Apache” by Sugar Hill Gang.  Check out how Allison and Steve tore it up for their delighted guests…


West Park truly outdid themselves this time!  And so did Allison and Steve.
