Perfect Jolly Pumpkin Wedding | Allison + Tyson

01/25/2024

In the heart of Old Mission Peninsula, nestled amidst the wooded bay views, Allison and Tyson found the perfect backdrop for their fall wedding ceremony. The Peninsula Room, with its rich history as the Bowers Harbor Inn and the cozy ambiance of the Jolly Pumpkin restaurant, became their dream venue.

For this couple, the journey to their wedding day was a two-year labor of love. From the very first moment they set foot on the property, they knew it was meant to be. The serene beauty of the venue and its historic charm captured their hearts, and they could not have asked for a more fitting setting for their special day.

As the wedding day arrived, the air was filled with an electrifying sense of joy and excitement. After years of planning and anticipation, Allison and Tyson were finally ready to exchange vows and declare their love in front of family and friends. The support and love they received from their nearest and dearest truly made their day magical. From the early morning preparations to the ceremony’s final moments, the presence of loved ones was deeply felt and treasured.

One key moment that stands out from their special day was the first look. Allison and Tyson were initially unsure about it, but in the end, they decided to share that intimate moment together. Gazing into each other’s eyes, their nervousness gave way to an overwhelming sense of joy. This private moment allowed them to connect and share in their excitement, setting the tone for the day ahead. What made this moment even more meaningful was being able to include Tyson’s sons, Charlie and Teddy. A special time with their family before the ceremony was a cherished memory they held dear.

Another unforgettable moment was when Allison stepped outside with her father to see that light rain had moved in, casting a dramatic and unexpected aura over their ceremony. Instead of letting it dampen her mood, Allison laughed, appreciating the unique entrance Mother Nature had provided. The rain ceased as the ceremony began, and their vows were exchanged, making it a moment of pure perfection. As her maid of honor later remarked, “A wet knot is the hardest to untie.”

To add a personal touch to their day, Allison and Tyson chose to write letters to each other instead of exchanging gifts before the ceremony. Reading each other’s heartfelt words filled them with love and happy tears, setting the tone for a day centered on celebrating their unique bond.

The emotional highlights of the day continued during the reception as heartfelt speeches were delivered by their loved ones. Allison’s dad, brother, and maid of honor, along with Tyson’s best man, shared their sincere and touching words. Laughter and tears flowed freely, creating a truly memorable atmosphere of love and support.

When asked to describe their wedding day in three words, Allison and Tyson agreed:

Allison: Emotional. Joyful. Magical.

Tyson: Joy beyond words.

Their wedding day at The Peninsula Room was a celebration of love, family, and cherished moments that will be remembered for a lifetime. It was a day that beautifully captured the essence of two souls coming together to start a new chapter in their journey.

Congratulations, Allison + Tyson! We are so thrilled for your commitment to one another and wish you nothing but the best.
