Simple, elegant and surrounded by family, friends and nature; does it get any better? With a Christmas proposal already in the books, it was only fitting that these two said "I do" at the same time of year. Simply Sarah captured all the seasonal style and sweet moments (from kisses to cake) and it all can be found in our gallery right this way! Happy Friday!

From the Bride... Josh and I first met about 10 years ago on the school bus. From that moment I knew that he wasn't your typical high school boy, and had a crush on him for two years before he asked me out. This January will mark eight years together. On Christmas Day of 2015, he proposed by hiding under a large box that was wrapped like a present. When his mom and sister lifted it off, he was already down on one knee. It completely caught me off guard even though I knew it was coming... only because I may have "hinted" numerous times before.

When it came to planning the wedding, I never had a specific theme in mind but knew that I didn’t want it to be a stereotypical barn wedding. I wanted it to feel very romantic with lots of florals and candlelight. The terms simple and elegant were often used throughout the process. We were very blessed to have the help of friends and family to pull everything together. Josh’s mom has her own business on the side doing cakes and catering called Singell Events, and went above and beyond with making our cakes and desserts, as well as creating the floral arrangements for the reception. The florals for our ceremony created by French Market Flowers were stunning. Cindy was able to capture everything I had imagined and more!

Before the ceremony began, it became significantly colder and started to sprinkle. As Josh and I were standing at the alter, we both became worried as we saw more and more rain drops hitting the officiant’s notebook. I honestly thought that everyone was going to be gone when we turned around! It turned out to be perfect though, and we couldn’t imagine it being any other way. Some of our favorite memories from our day include the ceremony music that a few of our friends and Josh’s sister provided, two of my friends from SCAD painted our ceremony and sketched portraits of our guests, we practiced our first dance in the bridal suite before we made our entrance at the reception, and the dance his sister coordinated for the mother-son dance.
