    No Place Like With You

    Ashley Fancher & Brian Weiss

    How did you meet? Our paths have crossed for many years. We both went to TCU, and while Brian likes to say he remembers me, it's the opposite. I 100% remember thinking he was cute, and he has no memory of me. Years later, things unfolded like all great modern love stories do—we both swiped right. It's not exactly a rom-com meet-cute, but it did have elements of one. Ultimately, one of my co-workers linked us together and that co-worker ended up marrying us. An online minister for an online relationship. #TrueLove

    Tell us about the proposal. Some pups named Gino and Wilhelm were involved. Last November, Brian got them new tags. Gino, an Australian red heeler and Brian's true love, had a tag that said "Will You," and Wilhelm, a miniature schnauzer who's stolen my heart, had one that said "Marry Me"—that's not a typo. The punctuation is missing because apparently a question mark was not an option for the engraving. Clearly, the answer had no question either.

    What was the inspiration behind your theme/design? I came across a Wizard of Oz-themed wedding on Pinterest and loved the idea because it's my favorite movie. More importantly, the moral of the story fit well with us as a couple. Everything Dorothy wanted was always right in front of her, she just didn't see it at first. I think that's something a lot of couples can relate to. We decided on a collection of different table arrangements, using various green vases, antique candlesticks and vases, and these cool metal baskets (hint, hint: Dorothy). The colors turned out absolutely perfect for the venue. Everything ended up looking like it was made for Hotel Emma.

    What were some of the unique details from your day? I approached the details thoughtfully. We got married on Veteran's Day and we both come from military families, so we had red poppies for boutonnieres. I also took the time to research the traditions and only kept those that made sense rather than doing something simply because it's always been done. We did a first look because I found the root of the "groom can't see the bride before the wedding" superstition to be too old to make sense today, and I wore a blush gown simply because the color looked better on me than white. Even with the first look, seeing each other at the ceremony was hands down both of our favorite moment of the entire night.
