The best things in life are worth waiting for. And for Alli & Trevor, that statement couldn’t be any truer. The two met through a Facebook group that Alli created for Single Christians in their 30s in the Dallas area. When the group planned a meet-up at a local park, Alli & Trevor were the first to arrive, and well… the rest is history.
Alli says, “Christ has been the center of our individual lives for many years and we both have waited, prayed, and sought God fervently on our future spouse. It only took a couple of weeks of knowing each other before God made it clear to each of us in His own way that we were ‘the one’ for each other! We are enneagrams 1 & 7 and we balance each other out in the most perfect, and sometimes overlapping, ways. We love God first, and each other second, and that is the foundation that will make our marriage last a lifetime.”
On April 11, 2021, Trevor surprised Alli with a gondola ride on a lake. “Trevor ‘found’ a glass bottle floating in the water and leaned over to retrieve it. Low and behold there was a ‘message in a bottle’. Trevor got the message out and Alli, in her excitement, grabbed the letter from him and started to read it. It was his proposal to her. The letter finished with ‘Will you marry me?’ to which Alli found Trevor down on one knee in the boat holding a ring!”
When Alli & Trevor got engaged, they immediately knew sunflowers would be a big part of their wedding day. “Our wedding theme is sunflowers and that’s important to us. Our colors are light pink and navy blue. We both are happy people who love summer, God, and having fun, and we want all of that to be reflected in our special day!”
Alli & her bridesmaids had a bit of fun in the balcony of Old Pate Chapel before the guests arrived.
When it was time to get ready, the bridesmaids donned gowns from Azazie.
The groomsmen looked ceremony ready in their suits from Men’s Wearhouse.
Before the ceremony, the bridal party took time to pray over the bride & groom.
For Alli, the location she chose to get married had a significant meaning. This same location she said “I do” is where she walked the halls of high school dreaming about her forever love and doodling hearts on her notebooks. The full-circle moment at 701 Thomas Road is a reminder to Alli & Trevor of God’s provision.
For Alli & Trevor, it was important to include special details in every area of their wedding day. When it came to what they carried with them as they said, I Do, there was no exception. Alli’s wedding band includes a ruby as a nod to Proverbs 31:10. Trevor wore custom-made cufflinks.
There’s just something about string music at a wedding. Alli & Trevor’s guests were treated to music from Dr. Ted Hardin and Teresa Angell both members of the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra.
Since Alli & Trevor didn’t do a first look, Trevor saw Alli for the first time as she made her way down the aisle with her dad. Trevor’s face, as he looks at his bride, says it all.
Alli’s childhood pastor, Dr. Jerry Kroll officiated the wedding ceremony. Alli and Trevor wanted their wedding day to be worshipful and they knew, Dr. Kroll was the man for the job.
One of the most important parts of the ceremony for Alli & Trevor was the taking of communion together.
When we asked Alli & Trevor what three words they would use to describe their wedding, they said, “worshipful, joyous, & fun”. Mission accomplished Alli & Trevor!
Congrats to Alli & Trevor. The best things in life really are worth waiting for.
