Allie and Dylan’s beautiful B&A Warehouse wedding was a testament to their love for each other. Their elegant and hilarious love story from their love for brisket nachos to accounting is so special. Read their full love and proposal story below, but first, we want to share a little bit more about B&A Warehouse.
The venue is located in the heart of downtown Birmingham directly across from Railroad Park, making it the perfect spot to have portraits taken without traveling far from the venue.
The main room used for weddings and receptions are the Brick and Crossing Room. These rooms have very industrial vibes with metal beams and exposed brick and have the capacity for up to 550 guests for a reception (350 for a seated meal). The venue also features a 12×16′ stage, and a beautiful fully stocked bar!
B&A Warehouse truly is the perfect place to have a Birmingham wedding! Now read about how brisket nachos and accounting brought Allie and Dylan together!
Allie and I first met each other at our accounting firm’s training facility called Deloitte University, or often referred to by our colleagues as D-Harmony. Since we both have jobs as tax accountants, I remember us introducing ourselves with caution, fully aware that the charisma of a stereotypical accountant can be just as mundane as the job itself. However, with much ease, Allie and I found an instant connection in our love for brisket nachos and old fashions. The only problem was that we worked in offices 150 miles away from each other. But don’t worry, we quickly found an alternative to our incessant need for witty banter: Skype for Business. Instead of working on tax returns, we started instant messaging with each other like a couple of sixth-graders who recently discovered AIM.
Initially, we were both suffering from “I like you but we live in different cities so I don’t want to get attached“ syndrome. However, thanks to another well-timed training event in Atlanta, Allie and I were able to spend a weekend together to discover that our personalities were unequivocally identical on the spectrum of awkwardness. It was perhaps this revelation that made us both realize this was an opportunity we couldn’t afford to miss.
Needless to say, Allie and I had our first date a few weeks later after procrastinating the inevitable. Given that we went bowling, we immediately began feeding off of each other’s competitive nature. Oddly, the competitive nature was not seen in our bowling performance. In fact, it was surprisingly due to who could contrive the most feasible excuse as to their losing.
Fast-forwarding through the various bowling and ping pong debacles, I found myself kneeling in front of her on top of the Vulcan statue. We are extremely blessed to have found each other in such a fickle world, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us. After all, besides reaping the benefits of filing a joint return, I’m not sure it could get any better than this!
Dylan and Allie’s dad worked together to come up with one of the most memorable nights of Allie’s life. It all started with a tour of The Vulcan, where Dylan would get down on one knee with the city of Birmingham behind him. After Allie and Dylan agreed that spending the rest of their lives together sounded like a great idea, Dylan took Allie to a local restaurant where she could get her favorite dish of all time – chicken parmigiana. It was at dinner where Dylan revealed that there was even MORE planned. Back at Allie’s parent’s house was a house full of family and friends to celebrate the engagement. It was truly a night to remember.
Our wedding at B&A Warehouse was everything we hoped for. The months and months of planning all became worth it. We were really lucky to have outstanding vendors that all played their part perfectly. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the day with our family and friends.
