January Bride of the Month | Bridgett

Meet Bridgett, our January Bride of the Month! She and her fiance, Drew, are getting married in Atlanta, GA on November 11, 2017 at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center

How did you meet?

I was a freshman at Georgia College and State University when I met Drew. School had just started back from winter break and my best friends and I wanted to celebrate being together again, so we headed over to our friend’s house for a party. When we walked in the front door of the fraternity house, I was looking around to find familiar faces. As I searched, one face stood out that I didn’t recognize, but I knew I needed to know. One of my older friends was standing next to this unfamiliar face. I couldn’t help but make my way over to them. My friend introduced us and the rest is history.

How did he propose?

This past summer Drew and I went on a cruise to Alaska with my extended family. We docked in Juneau, Alaska on July 6th. The day started by getting on a helicopter ride that took us 9 miles up in a glacier to a dog sledding training facility. 

We spent the day dog sledding and took a helicopter back down the glacier to have dinner.

Right before heading back to the ship, Drew asked my Aunt to take a picture of us with the ocean and mountains in the background. Little did I know my whole family knew about the proposal. When she started taking pictures, Drew whispers, “Do you know how much I love you?” Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

What has been the most difficult and most fun part of the wedding planning process?

The most difficult part of the planning process has been finalizing the final guest list since our venue has a maximum number for the indoor ceremony space, We are still way over our guest count.

The most fun part of the wedding planning has been all of the celebrating. It has been such a happy and exciting time for us with our friends and family near and far.  My dad has been hands-on when it comes to all of the planning! He is has become my wedding planner!  He has been working with the vendors, venues, caterers, and everyone else from day one which has really made my life a breeze. I am quite the procrastinator and still need to select my wedding dress, ask my bridesmaids and choose the wedding cake.  

Congrats Bridgett and Drew! We can’t wait to see the wedding photos!
