Reception location: Avon Gardens
Honeymoon location: Florida and a cruise to Cozumel and Grand Caymans
Wedding date: July 13, 2013
When did you first meet: I remember him saying something to me at a football game sophomore year, but we didn’t begin talking until junior year of high school.
Where did you first meet: Psychology class. He sat in front of me and we began talking. He hasn’t stopped talking to me since!
When did you know you were going to marry him: When I finally gave in and started dating him. I dated him for five months before I considered him as my boyfriend. He never gave up and hasn’t yet.
How did he propose: We went to dinner downtown and he surprised me with a carriage ride. Near the end of the ride a random lady downtown told Austin to “give her a kiss.” Austin said “I’ll take a kiss.” I kissed him and then Austin said, “I’ll marry you too. What do you think will you marry me?”
Favorite thing to do together: Try new restaurants and watch movies.
BRIDE OF THE MONTH WEDDING SCOOP:
Wedding colors: Purple and silver
Number of guests: 150
Number in wedding party: 8
Wedding Style: Garden
Beauty style: Classic
Dress style: A-line lace gown with beading.
Most unique wedding personalization: We displayed our grandparent’s wedding pictures, as well as a candle and message about the grandparents that were not alive but still present in our heart.
Something you did very different: We had a secular ceremony.
Something you did very traditional: We didn’t see each other before the ceremony.
Something you would do all over again: Have Avon Gardens as our Venue. It was so beautiful.
Something you would never do again: Take my dress to a retired seamstress to save money. My dress didn’t turn out right and it ended up costing more money to fix the situation.
Most memorable wedding moment: When he told me I looked beautiful once I walked down the aisle.
Best wedding decision: Choosing a beautiful venue.
Best wedding overall advice: Don’t get too stressed out with planning or if something goes wrong. Try to relax and have fun! You only get to do it once and it should be a positive memory.
