Wedding spotlight: Angie and Ira Taylor


Angie and Ira Taylor

Aug. 24, 2018

How we met: About four years ago, one of my best friends first mentioned Ira’s name to me and thought he might be single. However, he lived in Birmingham. It wasn’t until a little over two years ago that we actually met. Our first date was very casual. We spent a few hours listening to a local band play music while getting to know one another.
What we love: There are many things I love about Ira that set him apart from anyone else. Most of all, he is such a wonderful father to a little girl named Ella. He is also extremely dedicated in everything he does. When I asked Ira what he loves about me, he said everything! Smart guy!
The proposal: Ira proposed March 22, 2018, with Ella by his side. Ira and Ella surprised me with an Easter basket that contained a golden egg inside that Ella couldn’t wait for me to open.
The wedding: We were married at First United Methodist Church of Russellville with our immediate families present. A reception followed at the home of our friend Mark “Yogi” Welborn, with great music, amazing food and wonderful family and friends.
Favorite moment: My favorite wedding moment was when it was over! Have you ever tried to keep up with a five year old?
