Shortly into the relationship they both realized how much they had in common and began spending time together traveling to Las Vegas, Dallas and Key West. The couple also enjoyed going to concerts and being at Matt’s farm with the animals.
In October 2013 Matt asked Allyson to walk down to the barn to collect eggs from their chickens. Not thinking anything of it, she stumbled upon a pink Easter egg in the chicken coop with a beautiful diamond ring inside, and Matt knelt down and proposed!
The couple’s fairytale wedding took place August 9, 2014, at St. Louis Catholic Church in Louisville, Ohio, while all of their closest friends and family members stood by their side. The reception was held downtown at the historically elegant Canton Club. Their wedding colors were pewter and pink, which were captured in every detail. Allyson and Matt plan to honeymoon this winter in Hawaii. The couple resides in Malvern on their 25-acre farm raising buffalo and chickens. Matt works as a demolition estimator for the Eslich Wrecking Co. and Allyson works in oilfield sales for Fastenal.
