“We both grew up in Aiken, SC — only a few streets away from one another. We went to the same middle school and high school. Having mutual friends, we often would spend time together in groups. While at Wofford College, we began spending more and more time together. There, our friendship blossomed into love.”

How did you feel when you saw each other for the first time on the wedding day?

From Lauren

“I was so excited to see Michael and still remember walking, head down, to where he was standing with his back to me. When I grabbed his hand, I felt a variety of emotions — nervousness for him to see me in my dress, excitement to “officially” start the day, and a sense of calm to be sharing in the day with him. I treasure the special moment we got to share, just the two of us. I am so grateful that a “first look” was suggested to us.”

From Michael:

“I had so many positive emotions as I stood waiting to see Lauren at the “first look.” I had not seen the dress until the moment she came and grabbed my hand. Earlier in the day I was rife with anticipation to have that memory of Lauren in her dress. After Lauren was there, our countdown cue began. 1..2..3, then there she was; stunning in her dress. She was so beautiful, beyond any expectations I could have placed on the moment. I felt truly blessed to be marrying this wonderful woman.”  

If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?

“We would not change anything about the day — it was exactly how we had pictured it. All of our vendors went out of their way to make our day special. We were so happy with the end result after so many months of planning.”

Do you have any advice to other brides & grooms?

Take it all in — the day goes by so quickly. Enjoy the celebration — what a wonderful experience it is to have your most cherished friends and family in one place. Remember what the day is about — not everything will go exactly as planned and that is okay. You are starting a new adventure with your best friend, and the best stories can be found in the imperfections.”  

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

“We spent the first part of the honeymoon relaxing on the beach at St. Simons Island, GA and finished the week strolling through Savannah, GA.”

Brittany + Ben

“We grew up 15 minutes down the road from each other but didn’t actually meet and get together until New Years Eve 2012 in Nashville, TN while both visiting our siblings who are friends. I knew of him through his brother and his cousin, who also happened to be one of my friends. She had always put little bugs in our ears that we should meet and hang out but it seemed like one of us was in another relationship when the other one was not so the timing was never right. After that New years, Ben started visiting me in Statesboro, where I was still in school at Georgia Southern, and I would visit him back home. I always said I wanted to move to Nashville upon graduating so when May rolled around, I went forward with my plans with the understanding we would try to make the long distance thing work. Things progressed and got more serious and after being there a year, I decided to move home so we could be closer and see more of each other. Fast forward to now and well.. now we’re getting married! I prayed about the situation constantly and felt like God was leading me back home. I missed my family too and was quite homesick. Even though it’s cliche, the saying “If you want to hear God laugh, tell Him your plans” rings so true for me.”

Megan + Jackson

We both grew up in Georgia and lived 30 minutes away from each other. But it would have been too convenient to meet that way. During the summer of our sophomore year we both took a trip with Harding University for a summer abroad in Florence, Italy. Jackson attends Lipscomb University so not a lot of people knew him at the beginning of the trip. As it would turn out, we ended up sitting next to each other on the plane ride over. Megan has a rule of not talking to strangers on planes, so we rode the whole way over to Italy without saying a word. As the summer started we ended up spending more and more time with each other and figured out that we knew a lot of the same people. We were lucky enough to travel all over eastern Europe together and share amazing memories!
