Hello beautiful! We feel in love with Brittany from the moment she walked in the door. Her sweet demeanor and gracious kindness were the perfect compliment to her stunning Alyne gown! Big hugs for Ashlee who photographed the day perfectly!
Tell us a little about your story! Andrew and I met in Capetown, South Africa the summer before our senior year at the University of Georgia. Though we had both grown up in Georgia and attended UGA, our paths didn’t cross until we were halfway across the globe! We became fast friends overseas and continued that friendship throughout our senior year at UGA. Separate plans took us both to Denver, Colorado, where we discovered that we lived less than one mile from each other. Our friendship grew stronger as his house full of Georgia guys and my houseful of North Carolina girls explored all the best parts of life out west together! A job opportunity took Andrew back South, and it was then that we realized we might have something more than friendship! We began a long distance relationship and continued it from Colorado to North Carolina where I began law school at Duke. We continued to explore the world together, traveling everywhere from Cuba to Japan. It was on a return trip out to Colorado for a long weekend that Andrew popped the question! I happily said yes, and the wedding planning began!
When did you and your beau tie the knot? March 14, 2015
Where was the lovely venue? We were married at the Perry United Methodist Church in Perry, Georgia, and had our lovely reception at Southern Bridle Farms in Fort Valley, Georgia.
Tell us about finding your gown. I knew from the moment I got engaged that I wanted to get my gown from BleuBelle! My sister had a wonderful experience shopping with y’all for her gown in 2010, and it made such an impression on me! I had only a vague idea about what I wanted, or really, about what I didn’t want, but was otherwise open to suggestions. Courtney was as amazing with me as she had been with my sister! Between Courtney, my sister, and my mama, I was in great hands!
Was it love at first sight? It was absolutely love at first sight – it was the first dress I tried on! I think I knew it the moment I put it on, but always the cautious one, I continued trying on about six or so more gowns. I just kept comparing every other gown to that first one. Once Courtney put on the sparkly belt and the gorgeous veil, I knew that was it!
What is the one thing you would tell other brides, when it comes to finding the dress? I would just say to be open to different styles, don’t feel too much pressure, and enjoy the experience of wedding dress shopping! I picked the gown that made me feel beautiful, and that made my wedding day even more wonderful!
