Our Dating Story (Her version)

It all began on a snowy evening back in January of 2010. We met through mutual friends at a local ski resort while enjoying a country music band and a few cocktails. What started off as a harmless conversation, talking about “business,” led to 10 months filled with thousands of text messages (technology has really put a damper on the romance of pursuing a significant other), a few late night phone conversations, the occasional happy hour BUT never an actual date. That all changed on Christmas of 2010. We spent the evening together playing cards, exchanging gifts, drinking wine, sharing stories and having what would be one of the best nights of both of our lives and the start of the next chapter in our love story. That “official” first date came three days later.

Long distance was a word that we knew all too well. From the time we met until the time we were engaged, we never lived within 2 hours of one another. Distance never seemed to keep us apart though. Our evenings were filled with Skype sessions and our weekends with trips to Philadelphia and State College…there was also the occasional weekday trip as well. Crazy kids, you just couldn’t keep us apart! That distance that we always seemed to complain of proved to make our relationship even stronger. Fast forward a year and a half later. Ashley had won a trip though work to Las Vegas.

The Proposal (His Version)

Getting ready for dinner that evening, I had the entire proposal planned out. After a great sushi dinner, we were going to walk down the strip to the Bellagio to watch the fountain show. I had the exact time of our show, 7:20 PM. All of the day’s commotion to this point had me worked up: getting a ring from Pennsylvania to Las Vegas through airport security without Ashley knowing was quite the task. Every ten minutes I checked my wallet to make sure the ring was still in place. I was a nervous wreck and Ashley kept asking, “Honey, is something wrong? Are you not having fun?”

We arrived at dinner around 5:30 at Sushi Roku, and I was constantly checking my watch; we couldn’t be late for the 7:20 show. Anyone who has the slightest clue about me knows that I absolutely love to eat. I picked at our meal and barely finished my drink. Ashley asked, “Honey, don’t you feel well? Is your dinner not good?” Again, I told her I was tired from the long day. We paid our bill and started our venture down the strip towards the Bellagio. The timing appeared to be just right; we would arrive a few minutes before the show to get the perfect spot.

As we arrived at the fountains, I looked for the perfect background to have our picture taken as I proposed. We were in place, and I spotted what appeared to be a tech savvy couple I would ask to take our picture. By this time I had the ring in my front pocket, checking every ten seconds to make sure it was in place. The show was set to begin, and I asked the couple to take our picture as the fountains started. After handing them the camera, I removed the ring from my pocket and walked over to Ashley. I went down on one knee and popped the question. Immediately Ashley placed her hands on her face and repeatedly asked, “Are you serious!? You’re kidding me! This can’t be real.” After asking her a second time I said, “Ashley, please don’t make me ask you again!” She finally said YES and I placed the ring on her finger. I came to my feet and we kissed, taking in the moment as the camera snapped away. This was the start to the best vacation and the rest of our lives together!

Classic Outdoor Wedding at The Allen House Austin

Add a rich color palette like purple and white to a traditional day simply overflowing with gorgeous details and the results are a magical romantic celebration that can only be described as mesmerising. From the stunning flowers, to gorgeous mini wedding cake centerpieces to the fairy light outdoor reception it is a love-filled affair.

From the Photographer

I have memorized Corinthians 13:4-8, also known as “Love is Patient.” In fact, I have memorized many of the wedding prayers, poems, and sayings because of the number of weddings I’ve photographed. Never had a heard a more beautiful and meaningful reading than Kori and Filly’s wedding, when their ceremony was in Spanish. I minored in Spanish, and hearing the words to prayers and poems I’ve heard numerous times brought new meaning to the beautiful words. In many ways, Kori and Filly reflect the poem. They are patient and kind … and they know and understand the true meaning of family, friends, and most importantly, love.

Wedding Highlights

From the photographer: Megan and Matt had a gorgeous wedding day with plenty of sunshine. They added sprinkles of turquoise to the day in their lovely invitation, their bridesmaids bright dresses, and their groomsmen’s awesome plaid socks. Other fun special touches included a bright red trolley to get around in and a bagpiper to greet guests and send Megan and Matt off as newlyweds after the ceremony. Our favorite detail: Megan wore a cathedral veil during the ceremony and then changed into a birdcage veil for the reception! They had a perfect wedding day and we are thrilled to share these images with you!

Breathtaking DIY Barn Wedding by Rachel Rowland Photography

Every beautiful detail in this breathtaking barn wedding is DIY. Carefully crafted by friends and family, it proves that rustic chic is absolutely achievable all on your own. There are lovingly special touches everywhere you turn including table numbers made from a tree fallen in the bride’s sister and brother & law’s yard and homemade chalkboards created from re-purposed kitchen cabinets. Wine bottles used as centerpieces (gladly donated by many friends) and mason jar wine glasses made by the bride’s Aunt. The DIY went even further than just decorations with hair and make-up styled by the Step-Mother of the Groom, the ceremony officiated by the Bride’s Uncle, and the wedding party and bride walking down the aisle to music performed by brides sister and brother-in-law. Although there was no wedding planner, you would never know, as all their family and friends worked hard setting up the venue and creating the centerpieces the night before, ensuring every detail was perfect. And as you’ll see from the gorgeous pics by Rachel Rowland Photography it was a true success!

From the Photographer

Kat & Justin held their destination wedding in Isla Mujeras, Mexico at the all-inclusive Palace resort on October 11, 2012. There were very blessed to have 40 of their friends and family celebrate their nuptials on this beautiful island. Kat is slightly obsessed with Tiffany’s, so the bridesmaids dresses were Tiffany blue. Justin gave her a Tiffany ribbon charm for her Tiffany bracelet the day of their wedding and you can catch glimpses of it throughout the images. They took a trip to Italy before their wedding, which is where she found her wedding shoes.
