Family has always been the top priority for Sara Allen and Jacob Gibson. So, as the couple celebrated their nuptials with loved ones at the Missouri United Methodist Church, with a reception at The Atrium on Tenth, it was the family moments that stood out most.

“We were incredibly thankful that so many traveled so far to help us celebrate in Columbia, where we first met,” Sara says. They were especially pleased to be able to spend time with Jacob’s grandparents, who recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.

While there was no specific theme, the couple says it was important that the day feel classy with a touch of spunk. One particularly treasured moment was created when Sara’s family danced to “Family Tradition” by Hank Williams, which is known in the family as “their song.”

“We knew we wanted the day to be beautiful, without losing sight of entering into the gift of marriage, and we are so thankful for those who made it a possibility,” Sara says.
