The Proposal

Wade and Andrew got engaged on July 8, 2022, at the awe inspiring Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. They began their trip camping and fly fishing at Jasper National Park before traveling to the charming resort town of Banff, a bucket-list destination for both of them. On the second to last day, as they stood at the peak of a mountain in the cold wind and mist, Andrew proposed. When they returned to the hotel, the two immediately FaceTimed their families and popped a bottle of bubbly.

In Preparation

On the plane ride back from Canada, Wade and Andrew started making the guest list. They knew that they wanted to get married in Pawleys Island, a lovely beach community that has felt like a second home to Wade. The ceremony would be at The Abbey and there would be a tented reception at DeBordieu Club so guests could enjoy the amazing coastal views of South Carolina. Wade and Andrew are Nashville residents so they enlisted a local planner, Stunning and Brilliant Events, to help them bring their wedding vision to life. Wade opted for the same talented florist and baker her sister chose for her big day in Pawleys Island years prior. Finding the best band was another top priority as Andrew wanted to ensure everyone would be dancing all night long.

The Big Day

Before things got too crazy, Wade shared some special alone time with her older brother over coffee. She then met her mother and bridesmaids to begin getting ready! The couple decided to forgo a first look and instead handwrote each other letters to read before walking down the aisle. Wade and Andrew said “I do” at The Abbey at Pawleys Island surrounded by their closest friends and family. The church was adorned with soft florals, which matched the white walls and light wooden pews, altar, and ceiling. The tented waterfront reception was gorgeous and featured bright colors, signature drinks, comfortable lounge seating, and more. The bride and groom snuck off for sunset photos before cutting into a delicious 5-tiered pistachio cake and exiting in a vintage convertible.

The Retreat

The newlyweds honeymooned in Saint Barths, a beautiful Caribbean island, where Wade’s parents often vacationed. It’s a place she’s always longed to visit. Some of the couple’s favorite activities included reading on the beach, enjoying fabulous dining experiences, and jetting around in a cute convertible Mini Cooper. When Wade and Andrew returned home, they moved into their first home together, which was the perfect way to begin this exciting next chapter of their lives.
