Vino Oasi Vineyard Wedding Ally + Wesley Married

Vino Oasi Vineyard Wedding by Christina Forbes Photography

Wesley first fell in love with Ally when he saw her for the first time in 5th grade. He asked his friend and classmate “who is that girl?” And his friend replied in shock “Don’t you know who she is? That’s Ally her dad’s a major league baseball player!” Well at that moment Wesley felt slightly defeated. The school years went by and Wesley & Ally would see each each other in the school’s hallway, get together’s where they shared the same group of friends. Time continued to go by…a total of 14 years to be exact from the first day Wesley ever saw Ally. And there they were attending a friend’s wedding, when Wesley (with the encouragement of his mother) walked over to Ally. This time he didn’t let the fact that Ally’s dad Carl Willis who is the pitching coach of the Boston Red Sox defeat him! Within in no time these two were finally dating!

After these years of having his eye on Ally, Wesley finally proposed while they were walking along the Eno River. Their chose Vino Oasi an up and coming wedding venue just outside the Raleigh, NC area for their Vineyard Wedding. And just like the vines that take time to yield the grapes to produce the tastiest wine, it’s taken years for Wesley’s and Ally’s paths to finally align so that they could start a wonderful life together as husband and wife. Ally wanted a simply understated romantic style for her decor accented with array of peaches & grey color palette. I loved all the little sentimental details that were incorporated throughout the day. Ally wore her grandmother’s watch and her mother gave her a handkerchief that belonged to her grandmother as well. Wesley gifted Ally a Pandora bracelet andas the wedding day unfolded, he gave her charms to add to it. One of my favorite moments was when Ally & her Dad Carl had their first look! Ally hadn’t seen her dad since the baseball season had started! There were lots of happy tears at that moment!!

Everytime I look at pictures of Wesley glancing at Ally, you can’t help but see just how much he adores her! I’m so happy that I could be apart of their wedding day! Here’s to many more wonderful years of love & adoration!
