Ali + David's glamorous fall Walden wedding was the perfect celebration of their long lasting love story.

The gorgeous couple were high school pals, along with much of their bridal party. At the time, Ali was working hard at becoming a top gymnast and winning state on the balance beam. As the group grew up, several of the guys talked about how they were crushing on stunning Ali. But Ali had her heart set on David. As noted in the best man speech, "I knew it was over when I told her I liked her and she immediately asked about David."

At the Langham Hotel wedding suite, Ali sipped champagne and got glammed up with her lifelong friends and family.

Wearing matching forest green pajamas, Ali's bridesmaids fit into her blush and green wedding color scheme. The ladies had so much fun dancing around and sipping champagne.

Looking so lovely in her sheath wedding dress, Ali was anxious to see David. Before David even saw his bride, the tears were rolling. When they saw each other, they were immediately drawn into their own world.

The wedding ceremony space was filled with a gorgeous color palette of blush pinks and greens.

Because The only thing more lovely was the sun splashing on Ali as she walked down the aisle and David wiping away tears watching her.

Because charming officiant was Ali's sister, the ceremony was filled with sweet sentimental and funny moments. Officially man and wife, the guests threw pink rose petals as they walked back down the aisle.

The fall Walden wedding reception space looked like a fairytale! The lush green topiaries hanging from the loft ceiling were the perfect compliment to the delicate blush table flowers. More than the decor, Ali + David's reception was such a tribute to their romantic love story. They danced, they dipped, David laughed adorably as they cut the cake. And they shared a sweet parent dance. When Ali slipped into her sequin party dress, it was time to start dancing!
