A LONG TIME COMING
Allie, a master esthetician, and Rhett, a manager for Craig Peay Construction, first met when they were only 15 years old. Rhett was close friends with Allie’s cousin and the two became friends, but wound up parting ways until they reconnected at age 18. Once the pair rekindled their friendship, they started dating and have been together ever since. Rhett took Allie to a music festival for their first date. According to Allie, it was the best first date she’d ever had. “No wonder I married him,” she says.
After five-and-a-half years together, Rhett decided it was finally time for the duo to seal the deal. On May 24, 2020—at a barbecue hosted by Allie’s family—Rhett got down on one knee and popped the question in front of an audience of his soon-to-be bride’s entire family.
THE BIG DAY
After a four-month engagement, Allie and Rhett tied the knot at Walker Farms in Lindon. “I knew it was the perfect place right when I walked in,” says Allie. “I looked up and saw the most beautiful chandelier.” Her favorite part of the venue? “Definitely the bridal room,” she responds. “It has the most gorgeous pink touches.” In order to achieve the boho, moody atmosphere the couple wanted for their nuptials, the pair chose champagne, soft pink and burnt orange for their wedding day color scheme.
ALL IN THE DETAILS
Allie worked with florist Artisan Bloom to make sure that the design details incorporated aspects of the couple’s relationship journey throughout the celebration. She added her favorite personal touch by incorporating pheasant feathers into the floral design. “My family is made up of hunting enthusiasts,” she explains, “so that was a nice way of including them on our wedding day, just like Rhett included them the day he proposed.”
“One of our favorite aspects of our menu was the steak served by Magleby’s Catering,” says Allie. “We also had beef medallions, mashed potatoes and sugared carrots, which were delicious.” The couple selected a bourbon vanilla cake from Carrie’s Cakes to top it all off.
