Jordan and Allan both swiped right on tinder five years ago, quickly learning of their shared love for hiking and fishing. Years later, sharing this passion, they hiked up to the overlook at Afton State Park together where Jordan noticed a box in Allan’s pocket. When they got to the overlook, two people were sleeping on the benches where they wanted to be. The couple waited an hour for them to leave but, just as they left, more people came up. Knowing that they could be there for hours waiting for the perfect moment, Allan decided to just place the box on Jordan’s lap. After a moment filled with awkward laughs, Jordan said yes! This special rose gold votivestring ring from Shane Co. was customized to have the diamond inside be one that belonged to Allan’s great-great-grandma!
Because of the pandemic, they wanted a brief outdoor wedding, somewhere they could have fun with their friends and family. They quickly fell in love with the driveway of Killarney Golf Course, lined with rows of trees. The wedding was to be filled with many fun twists and out-of-the-box events. For the first event, one of Allan’s groomsmen and Jordan pulled a little prank on Allan during the first look. Jordan found a thrift dress for the best man to wear for the “first look.” The next was to have a groom’s woman and a bride’s man stand up for them! The fun continued with the bridesmaids wearing matching Crocs under their dresses! For, their unity ceremony, they decided to mix a cocktail margarita instead of a unity candle! Jordan’s favorite movie “Rumor Has It” and she always dreamed of the quote from being said at her wedding, “life is short, but marriage is long, so if you drink up it will make it go a hell of a lot faster”. So after toasts her divorced aunt stood up and read the silly and likely truthful quote.
