The Proposal

Austin and I met at UGA and dated for our last 2 years of college, and we love being in Athens whenever possible. Our college friends planned a trip for the home opener and although we had discussed getting engaged soon – I had no idea he would have planned it for that weekend. When we got to Athens on Friday, he suggested we go to our favorite restaurant while we waited for the rest of our friends to arrive, but once we got in the car to head to drinks before dinner he suddenly suggested going for a walk on North campus (the beautiful, historic part of campus). I immediately knew something was up and even said “is this really happening”? He got down on one knee in front of the chapel.

In Preparation

My mom lives in North Georgia and had casually mentioned the Tate House, the beautiful, marble building down the street from her, was a wedding venue and maybe we should check it out. When we arrived, it was love at first sight. The beautiful gardens throughout the property, the incredible bridal cottage and stunning mountain views, we knew it was the perfect place to get married.

The Big Day

After arriving at the bridal cottage to start our hair and makeup, my girls and I had the best day sipping champagne and laughing. Before we were going to start our pictures, a pop up thunderstorm came and gave us the good luck of rain on a wedding. Once it lifted, Austin and I did a first touch where we read letters from each other and had a moment to ourselves. After we were officially husband and wife we had appetizers and champagne before the party started. We danced the night away and even had the UGA mascot, Hairy Dawg, make an appearance to “Call the Dawgs”. We made our sparkler exit and rode to Atlanta to begin our forever!

The Retreat

We had the luxury of 10 days in Jamaica at Couples San Souci alternating between the beach and the pool, sipping rum punch and enjoying our new lives as husband and wife! We ate, drank, and danced the week away before coming back to our pups and our new reality.
