Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.

Allie and Drew Stevens met by chance when they ran into each other at Michigan State University, though neither of them were students. “I was visiting my brother Jake, who swam there, and Drew was back visiting some guys on the football team since he played football there all four years,” Allie says. “We ended up running into each other and realizing we were both from Columbus.”

To celebrate their three-year anniversary, the couple took a trip to their favorite vacation spot, Napa Valley, to visit friends and enjoy wine country. To propose, Drew planned an entire day together featuring a merlot-colored Mustang convertible and wine tastings along the Silverado Trail. At their last stop, Silver Oak Cellars, Drew asked Allie to take a walk through the vineyards with him. “About halfway through he stopped me, got on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him,” Allie says of the proposal. “It was an unforgettable day in wine country.”

As a special touch to end their wedding ceremony, the couple released butterflies. Allie says her favorite part of the ceremony was marrying her best friend and thanks the team from Dalay Ket Event Design for making the day “breathtaking.”
