Bridal feature: Allison and Isaac Spencer


Allison is from Russellville, and Isaac is from Red Bay. The happy couple now resides in Red Bay following their Nov. 5, 2022 wedding.

HOW THEY MET: Allison and Isaac met through mutual friends. At first, nothing happened; they just introduced themselves and then went on about their night. About four months later they saw each other in Florence, and again, nothing happened. Fast forward four weeks; Allison was getting ready for a concert and had a friend request from Isaac. The twi exchanged phone numbers and began to talk all night. The concert was on a Thursday night, and Allison drove all the way home to Russellville from Tuscaloosa that night. Isaac stayed up with her to make sure she had made it home safely. He called the next day and asked if she had plans. That Friday night was their very first date.

FIRST DATE: The couple went to a local Mexican restaurant in Belmont, Miss. It was a typical first date, with questions like what do you do, do you have hobbies, who are your parents, etc. When the question about birthdays came up, Isaac said he wished he could change his birthday, and Allison said she bet her birthday was worse. They went back and forth on who had the worst birthday. Allison asked Isaac when his birthday was, and he responded with Dec. 21. Allison knows her jaw hit the floor; she thought he was pranking her. Isaac asked

when Allison’s birthday was, and she said Dec. 21. His face lit up with pure shock. She handed him her ID, and they laughed for a good 10 minutes.

THE PROPOSAL: The proposal was at the lake. Allison’s mom and Isaac’s mom and friend were there to take photos. Allison was so excited, she wanted to call everyone, and Isaac said to wait until the couple got home. She was confused why he wanted her to wait, but when they pulled in his driveway, all of the couple’s friends and family were there for a surprise party.

THE WEDDING: The wedding took place at Community Church at Hackleburg. It rained all day, but that didn’t stop the couple or their guests. They felt so loved by everyone coming and celebrating the day with them.

FAVORITE MOMENT: Allison’s favorite wedding moment was the introduction of the parties. She and Isaac had selected different songs for their groomsmen, bridesmaids and themselves to walk out to. It was a hit, and everyone enjoyed it. Isaac’s favorite wedding moment was the first look. He was so nervous to see Allison, and when he turned around and saw her standing there, he completely fell in love all over again. She was and is still the most beautiful bride.

WHAT THEY LOVE: Allison loves how compassionate Isaac is, with a heart of gold. She feels so blessed to have such a sweet and caring husband. Isaac loves Allison’s big heart for others and thinks she is absolutely beautiful, inside and out.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Isaac and Allison would like to thank each and every person who played a part in their wedding day. It would have not been possible without them. The couple is so blessed to have so many sweet and loving people in their lives.
