JOSH + SUSAN FOWLER
Adventure seekers // 15 years of marriage
5 kids // 2 businesses // We like living life to the fullest
Allison + Ryland are the kind of couple who live life to the fullest, but aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Their wedding day was full of sweet details mixing their old lives with their new marriage. The groomsmen boutineers were baby’s breath inside a blue shotgun shell. The colors on the invitation matched the bridesmaid dresses, and the wedding dress was absolutely perfect for Allison! She brought a box of memories– a picture of her as a child to recreate on the staircase and memories from her Christening day, including letters to her to remember to use them for her wedding day! Seriously, so much sentiment– it totally warmed my heart! A few months ago Allison emailed me to find out where Brittany had gotten her bridesmaid robes from and she ordered them as well. And possibly the most delicious part of the day? Gelato from Deluca Gelato! Yes- they set up a stand during the reception and it was a huge hit!
After getting to know these two, it was pretty obvious that Ryland is the extrovert. He’s always making everyone laugh and loves the outdoors. The venue, boutonnieres, and guest book were all nods to his love of fishing, hunting, and the outdoors. Allison jumps right in, but you can tell she’s the quieter one. The soft blues and subtle details throughout the wedding reflected her personality and I love how the two lives meshed together into one perfect day! Allison also loves to cross stitch and with help from her mom and sister, they cross-stitched all the table numbers at the reception. I love the unique and meaningful accent!
