Fowler & Dominey

It was an un­for­tu­nate cir­cum­stance that brought Jor­dan Fowler and Josh Dominey to­gether, but it re­sulted in the cou­ple's fa­vorite love story. “My twin brother, Justin, was in a ter­ri­ble ac­ci­dent while serv­ing over­seas in the USMC,” Jor­dan said. “Josh was in Ja­pan, serv­ing along­side Justin when his ac­ci­dent oc­curred. Upon re­turn­ing the States, we both went to be by Justin's side in the hos­pi­tal in Cal­i­for­nia. It was there that we first met.”

The pro­posal hap­pened on a whim while the two were driv­ing to Mem­phis for a Dave Matthews Band con­cert.

“Josh blurted out that he had a ring hid­den at home,” she said. “Hours later, the sus­pense was too much and I fi­nally got a beau­ti­ful pro­posal from him. Need­less to say, we were both all smiles for the con­cert, and ea­ger to get back home to our friends and fam­ily the fol­low­ing day.”

The big day: Oct. 11, 2014 Best Man and Maid of Honor: The Best Man was Gar­ret Wol­ge­muth, one of Josh's close friends from back home in Alaska. The Maid of Honor was Whit­ney Pfeifer, one of my near­est and dear­est friends.

The lo­ca­tion: We were mar­ried in The An­thony Chapel at Gar­van Wood­land Gar­dens.

The re­cep­tion: The re­cep­tion was held at The Ware­house, an adorable ren­o­vated ware­house owned by Pam Hill. We had very laid-back buf­fet style cater­ing by Deb­bie Tal­ley at Spe­cial Touch Cater­ing. The cakes were

all from Am­brosia Bak­ery, all mag­nif­i­cent. From white cake with But­ter­cream frost­ing, to Ger­man Choco­late, and a se­cret cake hid­den in the back which was Ital­ian Cream — I wish I had some now.

The look: I chose a sim­ple color scheme of pri­mar­ily black and white, with tons of gold ac­cents and tiny hints of blushes and pinks. The brides­maids wore floor length black dresses and the grooms­men had sim­ple black suits. The gold dec­o­rated the re­cep­tion, from vin­tage gold framed mir­rors to gold se­quined table­cloths. I ac­tu­ally opted out of flower ar­range­ments for the cer­e­mony it­self, aside from bou­quets. That chapel is so breath­tak­ing as it is, and I felt that it should re­main in its nat­u­ral, un­dec­o­rated state. The re­cep­tion had a few gor­geous flo­ral ar­range­ments with whites, creams, blushes and pinks.

The dress: Vin­tage lace, not quite stark white, with an off-the-shoul­der, sweet­heart neck­line.

Most un­for­get­table mo­ment: I think for both of us, it was the mo­ment that those chapel doors opened. All of our ner­vous­ness melted away as we caught sight of each other.

The hon­ey­moon: We are cur­rently plan­ning a hon­ey­moon for this sum­mer.
