Madi and Ian were high school sweethearts, and tied the knot surrounded by 20 of their closest family and friends. The intimate ceremony took place at “the spot”. This hideaway by the lake was where Ian asked Madi to be his girlfriend in high school, where they went for important convos while managing long distance during college, and where he would ultimately propose.
I’ve been thinking about how to put this day into words, because it was such a special wedding to be a part of. Carolyn and Sebastian are yell it with me IN LUUUUHHHVVVEEEE. Like nose burns, lots of tears in the eyes, all the romance kind of love. When I asked them what they appreciate about each other, they both mentioned how well the other loves them. I could’ve guessed that! I also wanted to share a little of their perspective from the wedding day.
Kate and Kyle’s love goes back all the way to 8th grade. These two have known each other since 4th grade, but their romance started a young love in middle school! Kate says her favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle in the church it all started at (they went to the church’s school together), and being married by the Pastor who’s had such a big influence on their lives over all the years.
Lauren and Drew had friends from early childhood to ones they met on a beach in another country attend their wedding day. They never meet a stranger, and are quick to welcome people into their life party with open arms. There is no weird get to know you phase—these two are easy to talk to. They met on the first day of school at UGA, and they love their Dawgs (their friends and family sent them off with the UGA mantra appropriately).
Beth + Dayn have been together for years. They share a home, a pinch-able cutie pie, and now a last name. When Beth, a former Free People manager, shared her vision with me, this wedding quickly became one of the most anticipated of the year. Every minute, detail, and plant(!) had Beth and Dayn’s personalities all over it. From the handmade jewelry to personally owned plants to that FLORAL CROWN to the favors, it was the most uniquely custom wedding I’ve ever been a part of.
