Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.

We have a confession about local newlyweds Stephanie Goare and Kevin Sprang: They aren’t quite Columbus locals at the moment.

Two years into their relationship, Stephanie was offered a fellowship position in Australia. When the pair decided to make the move, they also decided they wanted to be married for the adventure. Kicking it into overdrive, they planned a wedding and got married in just 10 months. Their upcoming move also served as somewhat of a theme for their reception: Each of the tables corresponded with a specific city in Australia.

But while décor celebrated the couple’s future, Stephanie’s wedding gown had a less visible testament to the past. The slip she wore under it was an heirloom passed down on her mother’s side of the family. Originally worn by her grandmother, the slip is actually made from a World War II parachute.

We hope you’re enjoying the outback, Stephanie and Kevin!
