Alison & Benjamin

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The reason we knew it was our venue immediately was because our first date was actually at the Varsity Theater. So really it was a no brainier for us.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

I loved the fact that we got to pick a personal message to have up on the marquee at the Varsity. When Ben proposed the song “Love Story” by Taylor Swift happened to be playing so it seemed  to be fitting to have it say “A Love Story Starring Ben and Alison” 

One of the other cool things the Loring Pasta Bar and Varsity Theater offered was signature cocktails. We got to come in and have a really fun day of tastings and concocting different drinks until we found two we really enjoyed! 

And of course our fantastic photographer. She truly captured the day and you can see that if you flip through her photos  of the day some of our family who were unable to attend said they really felt like they were there just by looking at them! 

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Honestly one of the best moments was when I was tossing my bouquet and the girls…there is no other word for it but they went insane. A full dog pile complete with wrestling occurred after I did the toss. It was so great!

Eclectic Hay Loft Style Shoot

Posted by Jeffra on Feb 16, 2012

So how does it come about to do a style shoot in the loft of a barn? Erin Johnson, the photographer, explains:

“I asked Carly, from Girl Friday, to set-up an inspiration shoot. I told her I just wanted to show up and be suprised. Well, I was suprised alright! She called on some of our favorite people in our area…and pretty soon it was getting so big she split the shoot into two themes with two sets of models! This is the first theme. We’re calling it “eclectic hay loft wedding.” It’s inspired by Carly’s love of books, fonts, black and white stripes and her pug, Hank.  Carly hung a 9ft story banner between dark brown curtains.”
