Sarah and Adam’s wedding is one that I looked forward to for a long time. Southern Oaks Plantation is stunning and so accommodating to guests and vendors. It is always a joy working with them! Sarah and Adam are a fun and laid back couple. The wedding day went by so effortlessly, and their expressions say it all. These two are crazy about each other, and they have the most fun family and friends. (You’ll see that in the reception photos!) Oh, and their CAKE. Oh my gosh, the cake. You just have to see for yourself. Props to Destiny with Poppy & Mint for the gorgeous cascading flowers down the cake. You go girl!
How did you two meet? We say it was fate because we met three times without any planning. The first was at Buddies Restaurant (he was a bus boy, and I was a waitress.) Within that same month, we had Spanish class in college together. He is fluent in Spanish so I sat next to him to copy off of him! Then on the way home from class I thought he was following me but turns out our apartments were right next to each other. It’s like it was meant to be.
Processional: Traditional song (moms’ request)
Recessional: Sign Sealed Delivered by Red bone
First Dance: Just Passing Through by Jason Aldean
How did Adam propose? Adam brought me back to Buddies where we first met and had our first kiss! It has always been a special place in our hearts. He totally took me by surprise! After he proposed both of our parents joined us, and we had a celebratory dinner. It was our favorite night of our lives, well, beside our wedding night!
Cake flavors: Strawberry shortcake and coconut
Having our friends and family at our wedding and feeling the true happiness and love from everyone was our favorite moment from the wedding day. So many people told me how there is drama and stress, but never once did we have that feeling. Everything felt so perfect. Also, when Adam and I first saw each other, I thought for sure one of us would cry! Instead we just got so excited and could not stop smiling at each other. The dancing by everyone was on point!
