The First Encounter

Our first encounter was in true Southern style… well from a man’s perspective. Shea asked me out on our first date to attend the SEC Championship in Atlanta. It was that night that we realized how much we had in common and knew that this was something real



In Preparation

After 4 years of dating, Shea proposed to me while wine tasting in Tuscany, Italy. Filled with excitement, my sister and I began the planning process less than 24 hours afterwards! I would advise any bride to start planning early and not to sweat the small stuff. With the help of family and friends, we planned the perfect classic, Spring wedding mixed with some flair and pops of color. Enjoy the engagement period, because its and event all in itself! On the day of the wedding, the boys spent their time at TopGolf in Midtown Atlanta while the girls were being pampered with hair and makeup.



The Big Day

There is no feeling quite like the one you experience in the hours leading up to your Big Day. So many emotions are running through you, mostly fueled by nervous anticipation of watching your day unfold. We were fortunate to have everything fall into place perfectly and it will continue to be a day that we both cherish forever. Being surrounded by wonderful friends and family makes it even more special when reflecting on how AMAZING the day was.



The Retreat

Our main objective was to go somewhere we could just relax, be pampered, and travel to easily. Mexico fit the bill perfectly and was the best choice for our Honeymoon. We were definitely grateful we chose our destination based off of those criteria because we were so mentally and physically drained after the wedding. A quick flight to Mexico allowed us to arrive at the beach quickly to start unwinding, and indulge in a few mojitos! We still live in Georgia and spend our free time traveling to new places and boating up on Lake Hartwell. Oh and of course we spend the rest of our extra time writing thank you letter to everyone that helped celebrate our Big Day with us!
