What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?

Collin and I shared a last dance in the venue by ourselves to our favorite song. All of the guests had exited the venue for the sparkler send-off, and we were able to enjoy the setting alone for one last time!

When did you know that your gown was “the one”?

I had tried on my dress almost right after I was engaged and fell in love with it. I brought my bridal party in before purchasing the dress, and we went to several other stores to try on dresses just in case. Nothing compared to my dress and everyone fell in love with it!

How did you and your husband meet?

We met at the College of Charleston on a weekend with friends in the mountains. Collin asked me on a date shortly after the weekend, and it has been history since then!
