Joshua and Allison are teachers at the same school which is where they met. They started dating during his first year of teaching after hanging out a few times at happy hour with our coworkers.
Joshua took Allison on a date after school one day. They went out for drinks at their favorite local brewery and then out to dinner at the restaurant where they had their first date. Apparently, he had plans to propose to her at both of those places, but he was too nervous to do it in front of other people. They went home and he and asked her right in the living room. Allison says “It was perfect.”
They knew they didn’t want a traditional wedding venue and they fell in love with Accelerator Space’s industrial vibe. From the repurposed floors to the gorgeous windows and patio, they knew instantly it was where they wanted to have their wedding.
By far taste testing the food and cake Was their favorite part of the wedding planning. They thought Rouge was fabulous to work with and all of the food was delicious.
Pinterest and Etsy have a ton of beautiful things to get inspiration, but at the end of the day, they just selected things and colors they liked and hoped it all went together.
They loved their wedding ceremony. Knowing they weren’t going with the traditional church ceremony, they wanted their guests to feel their love so they opted to write their own vows and asked her uncle to become ordained and officiate their wedding. They also enjoyed the maids of honor and the best man’s speeches and felt they were amazing. Allison’s sisters completely surprised her by acting out a small scene from one of her favorite movies. Josh loved the late night dancing, and drinking bourbon and smoking cigars outside with the guys.
