Allison Taylor and Alan Lemasters grew up in the same small town and have known each other forever. Alan played sports in the same league as one of her brothers and her father was a coach so they were always at the ball fields together growing up. Alan moved to Louisiana and she moved several different times over the course of the next 20 years. However, they eventually returned to that same small town to be near family.
Allison moved back around six years ago and would run in to Alan in different spots around town and they would always visit and cut up with each other but things didn't really click until about three years ago. Alan's buddy came to town and was selling fresh caught gulf shrimp and she went to buy some and they talked her in to hanging around and staying for the fresh shrimp boil. From that day on, things just seemed to finally click and they've been together ever since! So, Alan always says he "caught" Allison with shrimp for bait!
They enjoy each others company no matter what they are doing. In warm weather, you can usually find them on the boat or floating in the lake until sunset and then playing cards or games in the evenings or hanging out at the local marina. They also like to travel and are usually planning where to go next. They enjoy visiting National Parks and going on epic adventures.
They were engaged on December 4th, 2020, which is actually Allison's birthday - but Alan is adamant the ring was NOT her birthday present! They had been talking about getting married for a while but Allison was very surprised to get a ring that day. They were on a much need vacation staying with friends home in Cape Coral, Florida. They returned from brunch and were hanging out by the pool when he popped the question.
When it was time to tie the knot and become officially husband and wife, they decided on Key West, Florida!
The two said I do oceanside at Smathers Beach and finished the evening off at the exclusive Hot Tin Roof.
Congratulations to you and your families!
