Featured Wedding: Allison & Matthew
October 16, 2022
How They Met
Matthew and Allison met on a Christian dating app called United Young.
Matthew proposed to Allison at the Garden of Roses in Columbus Ohio on her birthday. They went out to dinner that night and Matthew asked the waiter at the restaurant if he could have one of their cloth napkins to use as a blind fold so Allison would not see where they were going after dinner. Matthew lead Allison with a blindfold to the spot where he proposed.
Allison and Matthew opted to do a first touch and pray together prior to their ceremony.
The ceremony was such a special and faith-filled ceremony that perfectly reflected Allison and Matthews relationship.
Why They Chose Arlington Acres
“We chose Arlington Acres because of the beautiful barn venue and gorgeous landscape of the farm! It was exactly what we were looking for and we loved that it was so flexible and allowed us to really stay within our budget since we had quite a bit of freedom to do what we wanted vendor wise!” ~ Allison
Their Advice for Future Couples
Pick 3-5 things that are most important to you and budget the most for those and let everything else work itself out! We were given this advice and it really helped us decide what we were willing to spend the most on versus what we decided not to spend as much on based off of what was most important to us!
“Arlington Acres was hands down the most BEAUTIFUL venue!!! We could not recommend them enough to anyone looking for a low cost, more do it yourself venue!! Sarah was absolutely incredible to work with and provided such detailed documents to help with the planning process. This venue allowed us to have a ton of freedom with vendors which helped us to stay within our budget! Our friends and family absolutely loved the venue as well! The property was absolutely stunning for fall pictures! If you’re looking for a barn venue THIS IS IT!!! I would recommend Arlington Acres to anyone.” ~ Allison
