PHIL + ALLISON

Wedding Date :: July 8, 2017

ALLISON:

Hometown :: Akron, Ohio
Favorite Food :: A tie between chicken tacos (topped with lots of guacamole) and a fresh-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookie
5 Words (as described by Phil) :: Brilliant, Thoughtful, Humble, Strong, FUN!
Alternate five words about Allison: Sprinkles make everything way better!
PHIL: 
 
Hometown :: River Forest, Illinois
Favorite Food :: Pulled Pork
5 Words (as described by Allison) :: Supportive, creative, hard-working, caring, and passionate
Alternative five words about Phil :: Always looking for adoptable dogs 🙂
How They Met :: (as told by Allison) We met during college in a creative writing class. Our professor paired us together to do an icebreaker on the first day of class, where our job was to get to know each other, then introduce each other to the class. We both liked what we learned about each other in those few minutes, and we went on our first date a week later at River Road Coffee House!
How He Asked :: (as told by Phil) I surprised Allison with a proposal when I picked her up from work at the University of Illinois Library on a very cold and rainy Veteran’s Day. I picked Veteran’s Day in honor of her Grandpa who had passed away earlier that year. Afterward, we went out to a nice dinner at our favorite local restaurant.

It makes my heart burst when my families expand & grow. Especially when I can visit their home again and recreate some of our favorite images from our first photo shoot together. Except this time around, their family looks more complete. 😉 This sweet family welcomed baby Sebastian to the world and he’s the perfect fit. Enjoy my favorites from our morning together.
