How We Met: My (Elizabeth) best friend growing up from Mountain Brook, Libby, attended Texas Christian University, where she was roommates with Eric’s good friend from Snellville, Georgia. After our junior years in college, Libby and our closest friends from home took a beach trip. The whole week Libby talked about how Eric and I had to meet, so we decided to pass through Atlanta on the way home and see him. Eric came up to Birmingham the next weekend, when Libby and I were being presented at the Ball of Roses. After that, we had definitely hit it off!

The Wedding Dress: Carriage House was my first appointment. I described my ideal dress to the consultant, but she knew better. With my petite figure, she selected the exact opposite dress to try. It was strapless, slightly fitted and all lace. As soon as I put it on, I fell in love. As the consultant placed a veil in my hair, my mom and I teared up. I can’t believe it was the very first dress I had put on that day.

Favorite Moment: Our ceremony at sunset was my favorite. Not only was it so sweet to say our vows while looking out at all of the precious people in our lives, but the setting was SO gorgeous. God blessed us with the most beautiful weather that day. The Sonnet House team captured my vision flawlessly with blush and white peonies, roses and hydrangeas that created such a sweet, romantic feel.
