How did you two meet?
We met at the lake in 2015! Lee and I were both there with friends and ended up at the same party. I had just graduated from college and was starting my job in Birmingham, which is where Lee lived. I think 10 people from that weekend actually ended up being in our wedding! Coincidently, we had a lot of mutual friends, so we spent a lot of time together that summer and eventually started dating in the fall.
Lee proposed at home, so our golden retriever could be there! He coordinated the most perfect weekend, and I have to give him credit because planning is not his forte. After the proposal we went to dinner with our parents and then back home where some of our friends were waiting to surprise us. I had no idea he had also planned a party the next night, so all of our family and friends could celebrate with us. For me, it rivals our wedding weekend. I was so surprised and felt so loved. It was the perfect way to kick off our engagement.
Favorite Wedding Moment
Our favorite moment was during the reception when we were Greek dancing! Everyone joined in and gave it a try. It was so much fun! Afterwards, everyone stayed on the dance floor and kept it going all night long. They were lifting us up in chairs and everything. I don’t think anyone was sitting down. It really was a big, fat Greek wedding!
Favorite Wedding Details
I loved the flowers. We decided to do bright flowers mixed with lights, candles, citrus fruits and colored table cloths. When we walked in to see the venue, I couldn’t believe how perfectly it all came together. We also loved the party favors at the end of the night. Light-up leis and flower crowns and ice cubes that lit up, too! I love looking at the pictures. It was beautiful, and everyone seemed to be have the best time.
