Allison and Mike met at a mutual friend's wedding. They dated long distance for more than a year while Allison lived in Pittsburgh; she then moved back to Columbus. Mike proposed during a holiday visit. "He got up early (unusual for him). While watching 'Storage Wars' reruns, he put on Christmas carols, asked me to dance and got down on one knee," Allison says. They used photography as a theme to guide their wedding, with a photo of the couple at different destinations positioned at each guest table. Kids at the wedding were given disposable cameras, and all guests enjoyed the photo booth. The newlyweds continued their celebration with a trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
