Allison Chila & Reed Erskine

October 20, 2018

Sometimes, that high school sweetheart story is just right. After meeting in the tenth grade, Allison Chila and Reed Erskine began dating before the start of senior year, and theirs was a relationship that was bound to last. Those tricky transitional years following high school were endurable for the couple, and Reed dropped a knee in a vineyard on a surprise Napa Valley trip celebrating Allison’s graduation from physician’s assistant school. The ceremony was held at Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, with the reception at The Rutherford—a charming venue perfect for their twilight dinner. The day contained plenty of personal touches, one of the most memorable being Allison’s veil that her mother made by hand, carefully matching the tulle and lace with the gown itself. Allison and Reed have settled in Greenville; Allison is a physican’s assistant at Anderson Emergency Associates, and Reed is an engineer at Michelin.
