On New Year’s Eve, Allie Sheets and Chris Dunbar welcomed their closest friends and family into their new home for an intimate exchanging of vows. In front of an audience of eight, along with many others tuning in via Zoom, the couple said “I do” while embracing a boho chic flair. Allie took a pivot away from tradition when it came to her dress, opting for a tiered peplum Brock Collection gown with muted florals instead of standard white. The structured corset and bustier were complemented by Beauty by Alessi’s soft makeup and a loose updo courtesy of Laura Rocha. Florals from Rogue and Fox brought a pop of color at the altar and tabletop, with cascading greens highlighted by notes of pink and iris. Following the ceremony, the small crowd enjoyed a dinner under sparkling lights and danced the night away in Chris and Allie’s cozy backyard.
