Meet Alex, our April Bride of the Month! She and her fiance, Sam, are getting married June 2018 at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta, GA.
How did the both of you meet? We met Sophomore year at UGA. We were friends for a year until he asked me on his Fraternity’s date night.
How did he propose? Sam proposed at his family’s lake house. There is a country club up there where we had 5pm “dinner reservations.” He insisted we go around 4:30pm to check out the view and have a drink on the patio. We went early, and were checking out the view, when he squared my shoulders to his and started to propose. Turns out he had a photographer there to take pictures of the whole thing and that I was misled to believe was shooting a Valentine’s day promotion for the club. The club wasn’t even open to the public that day! They had a few people there just so he could propose. It was an amazing moment that we shared, while taking in that gorgeous view.
What has been the most difficult and most fun part of the wedding planning process? We both have huge families, so trying to accommodate both sides has been challenging! The most fun part has definitely been picking out the band and putting together our own kind of style to it. We love anything 60s, 70s, and soul, so it’s been a blast!
Congratulations Alex and Sam! We can’t wait to see the photos of the wedding!
