Filled with several southern touches, Allie and Josh’s wedding perfectly complement their love for both Texas and North Carolina respectively. From the hand drawn invitation, to the 65 year old cake topper – also used by the bride’s grandparents and parents – their personal touches reflected their thoughtfulness and love for family and friends. Guests dined on a bride and groom favorite of southern fried chicken, drank local brews, and enjoyed the “biscuit bar” grooms cake. Allie chose a palette of burgundy, dusty blue and dusty rose which was complimented by fall greenery and her best friends. The rustic venue featured crystal chandelier accents to make for the perfect setting for their southern soiree.

After Josh graduated from the University of North Carolina he worked in a research lab on the UNC campus. In 2013, Josh’s boss decided to move the lab to UT Southwestern in Dallas and Josh made the move to keep his job. During this time Allie’s friend Cheyenne dared her to try a new dating app with her. They wanted to get out and start dating, to stop being the third, fifth, and even eleventh wheel! Soon enough Josh and Allie “swiped right” for each other and met for the first time to get dinner. There they decided life was better together. This simple swipe started a long distance relationship and eventual engagement, and a 1,183 mile move from Texas to North Carolina to be husband as wife.
