Congrats to Alyson and Josh who will be getting married in Destin with a SOLARIS Yacht Wedding this December.
They got engaged on the sky deck of the SOLARIS and now they are hosting their Destin wedding and reception in the exact same place. How great is this engagement story?
“Alyson, being the Auburn grad that she is moves to “the other side of the state” … Tuscaloosa. She moves into a cute little house and meets her next door neighbor, Justin Slaton. At the time, no one knew that Justin had a side business in match-making; however, as time would tell…he would retire in this business with a pretty steady record of one for one. 🙂
After a Sunday Service at Church of the Highlands Tuscaloosa Campus, Justin and Alyson had a nice backyard chat about meeting at the upcoming First Wednesday Service. They decided that they would sit together with each of their friend groups.
Well, Wednesday comes along and as Alyson sits down with her sister and her sister’s boyfriend, Justin (funny how names work out in this story), she texts Justin (the match-making neighbor) where she is sitting so that they could all sit together. Well, as Alyson puts down her phone, she looks up, and sees this “friend” that Justin and his now wife Claire decided to bring along with him. Her first thought was, “oh my stars, that boy is cuuuuuutteee.”
The following day, Alyson and Josh begin to start texting and that’s when the relationship begins to evolve. The first date included a dinner at El Mariachi, their favorite mexican restaurant in town, and after that, they saw each other nearly almost every day after work. Four months later, after discussing that they both wanted to become husband and wife one day, the couple was touring the SOLARIS yacht in Destin Florida for a possible reception venue. Alyson and Josh get to the top of the boat, where an alter stands for weddings that take place on the boat.
Alyson’s mother says, “Hey, why don’t y’all go up there and take a picture.” Well, to say the least, this was not some ordinary picture. As Alyson is posing, Josh begins talking and telling her how much he loves her and then drops to a knee and asks for her hand in marriage. After an “Oh my lanta” and a “YES!” the two become engaged. :)”
