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.
