Erin Elledge & Forrest Burleson – October 24, 2020

How You Met: We first met in 2009 at Hartselle High School, where we sat across from each other in art class, and that was the beginning of our friendship. Over the next several years, our friendship grew and turned into a relationship when we were students at Auburn University.  

The Proposal: In 2018 Forrest proposed in the garden we had spent the year creating. We were surrounded by all the plants and flowers we had poured our love into, and it was perfect. 

The Wedding Dress: The dress came from Hartselle’s Something Blue Shoppe and was designed by Randy Fenoli 

Favorite Moment from the Big Day: Instead of your typical first dance, we played a slide show created by Kaylon King that showcased our lives. Frank Sinatra’s “I’ve Got a Crush” led the way, starting with baby photos, followed by our friendships, families and highlights of some of our favorite adventures together as a couple. It was so special to share with all of our guests. Her brother Keaton Elledge escorted Erin down the aisle, and instead of bridesmaids, her best friends spotlighted as flower friends, each one helping to covering the path with beautiful rose petals before she walked down the aisle.  

What You Are Doing Now: When we moved back to Hartselle, we started a small flower farm, “Sunwise Flowers,” on the Burleson family’s land. Together we grow specialty flowers and vegetables and bake fresh sourdough bread for the Hartselle Farmers Market that Erin volunteers her time to manage. Our desire is to bring life to our downtown Farmers Market and help connect our close-knit community to its local growers, bakers and crafters. Hartselle is our hometown, where we have planted our roots, and we look forward to watching it grow.
