Here is the interview with our awesome bride and some of our top pics from the wedding! Enjoy 😉
HOW DID HE POP THE QUESTION? (Written by Adam)
The idea was to make a grand proposal. I thought for weeks and weeks on how to do it and kept getting frustrated at all my ideas because every time I turned around, the social media ruined it for me, someone else already did what I wanted to do.
I decided since we were going to Atlanta for Thanksgiving, I would see what sites there were in the big city. I found the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and discovered that a Christmas light show was being hosted there. I was stoked, Charla LOVES Christmas lights. Plus she is always dragging me outdoors so what a better way to ask her for her hand in marriage.
Day before Thanksgiving I put the ring in my coat and off we went. We spent the entire day shopping and seeing exhibits all through out Atlanta. Nervous me kept my hand in my pockets the entire time, why..? Because her diamond ring was stashed in my coat and last thing I wanted to happen was to lose the ring.
Finally night drew and surprise, off we went to the Botanical Gardens. Charla had no idea we were going. She was excited when we pulled up and lights were everywhere!
Apparently we took the longest walk ever… and ever… lol, till I found the most perfect cozy spot in the entire garden. It was a secluded tunnel dimly lit near a little water cove. I stopped and realized it’s go time. Time to ask the women I love to be in my life forever. I got down on one knee and asked, “Will you marry me?” 🙂
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION?
We did a fairytale theme because that’s how I feel when I am with Adam. Girls grow up wishing for their prince charming and God gave me my prince charming. We did light blue, sliver and white for our colors to get the fairytale look. The twinkle lights at the farmers market added the perfect touch.
DESCRIBE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS
I loved the cookie bar. I bought boxes and boxes of Girl Scout cookies and put them out for everyone to enjoy. A custom made banner was placed at the table along with mini milk jugs.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Dancing! Our Dj Rocks kept the music fun so no one left the dance floor all night long! We also had a cloud for out first dance that surprised everyone and was so romantic.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Easy!!!!! We both felt so relaxed around them like our best friends were taking the pictures. They just had us be ourselves and captured us in the moment.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
Growing old and wrinkly together!
