My husband (Nic) and I (Sarah) met at a bonfire my senior year in high school. We instantly started talking, and he asked for my number. The rest is history. We dated for a year-and-a-half before he proposed to me in Orange Beach. It was such a beautiful and amazing day.


I found my dream dress in Peachtree City, Georgia. We were visiting my grandparents, who live in Newnan, Georgia. My mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and I were just going to look for fun, but the third dress I tried on was the one. We all started crying when I came out of the dressing room and that is how we knew. We then called my dad, grandfather and uncle to come see me in my dream dress. When they saw me in it, they also started to cry. We all knew that it was the perfect dress for me.


I would have to say my favorite part of my dream day was definitely the moment that Nic looked at me and cried. One of the things that everyone loved was when Nic and I, along with my parents, his parents and all of our grandparents, danced to the song, “Don’t Blink” at the reception. My Aunt Kathy and her friends did all of the flowers and decorations for the reception. I could not have been any happier of how our wedding day turned out.
