Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
Ally and Vince Graves have known each other since the days of sippy cups; Vince was the best friend of Ally’s older brother when they were young kids. After growing up together, Ally and Vince decided to give a relationship a go in high school. While that relationship didn’t last too long, they remained friends and rekindled their relationship a few years later. And now? Ally and Vince will celebrate their second wedding anniversary Sunday.
With a long history just between themselves, the couple also wanted to celebrate the love that came before them on their wedding day. They had an easy answer: a cake topper. Theirs was an heirloom from Ally’s grandparents’ wedding, more than 50 years ago!
