Have you ever imagined selling your vehicles, ripping up your apartment lease and hitting the road to travel the nation in a giant RV? Well, thats exactly what Rich and Allison did! To top it all off Rich planned a Grand Proposal to Allison in the Grand Canyon along their journey and soon after they were able to put together a beautiful wedding on a Mango Farm in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This couple can LITERALLY do it all! Read below some snippets of their amazing story, I know you will fall in love with them just as we have...
How It All Begin: Allison was laying on the couch watching HGTV when she blurted out, “I totally want a tiny home. I could afford that.” Her outburst quickly became a series of brief day dreaming conversations, brainstorming “What ifs”, and months of researching for Rich and Allison as they actually came up with a master plan. They decided they were going to buy an RV and work on the road; Allison as a travel Speech Language Pathologist and Rich as a Senior Physician Recruiter.
9 Months later they had closed up 2 apartments, sold 2 cars and purchased an RV online. Alli & Rich will tell you planning this adventure was no walk in the park. There were countless moments that drained them of sleep, forced them to have big conversations like that about finances and many other compromises like that of their social lives, all in good faith of saving up for the bigger picture.
In August 2017, they finally took off on what would be one of the greatest adventures of their lives. Fortunately for all of us they survived to tell us about it and tell us about it they did in an exciting blog that follows them along the ups and the downs of the roads less travelled. You can read the full story at www.adventuresofrichandalli.com.
Its only fitting that after spending all this time traveling and living in a 400 square foot RV together that Rich would fall so deeply in love with Allison that he planned out an epic surprise proposal along the Grand Canyon. We are just so proud of Rich for carrying an expensive diamond ring though the rocky canyon and not dropping it before he popped the question.
After a year of traveling together and exploring the nation our couple finally parked their RV back home and began planning their next great adventure to become husband and wife. We were so happy that they had found us and wanted us to be a part of such a special day with them. These two pour their hearts out into everything they do and its exactly what we felt attending this stunning wedding that was planned completely from scratch.
Fast forward to the big day and we can't stop talking about all the things that made this wedding and this couple so perfect. Maybe it was the guitar players or the heartfelt vows, the invisible jumprope on the dance floor or the Pizza Cake...Either way we are just so overjoyed to have been a part of this never ending adventure. Its an incredible story and we are lucky to have been a witness to this kind of love and joy.
We look forward to seeing what they will do next but until then we can relive all the memories of this day through their photos and videos... This is exactly why we love what we do and we make sure to pour OUR hearts into everything we capture, because your journey, no matter which road you take to get there, deserves that kind of love and attention.
