The great thing about knowing he’s the one… is KNOWING he’s the one. Our sweet bride contacted us before she was even engaged. She had a “feeling” a proposal was coming and loved Saint Simons Island, so naturally, she wanted her wedding to be in the Golden Isles. We exchanged emails back and forth, falling in love with each other’s quick wit, fashionable ideas and love of martinis. Needless to say, I was all too thrilled to get a chance to meet with my kindred spirit on a trip she and her fiancé were making to Jekyll Island.
Then she cancelled.
She was so apologetic for “wasting my time” (No waste at all– I adored talking to her each time!). She just didn’t think the proposal was going to happen during their trip, but thanked me for all the information, ideas and laughs. I won’t lie– I fell in love with her personality and style, so I was bummed.
Until she emailed two days later, exclaiming, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!” The rest was history.
We planned this beautiful, ocean inspired wedding at the gorgeous private residence, Villa De Suenos on East Beach on Saint Simons Island. They exchanged vows overlooking the ocean– while their closest friends sang a personally written song just for them. Guests from all around the country dined on traditional Southern food, a popcorn bar, Blonde Bombshell signature drinks and partied. . . All. Night. Long. No, seriously… Rob Base’s “It Takes Two” came on, and it was all over.
My favorite thing (and you know how much I love cake)? The way they looked at each other all night. . . I hope you two look at each other like that for the rest of your lives.
