In her own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: While visiting a friend in Young Harris, Georgia, she introduced us.
Q: When did you know your fiance was “the one”?
A: After meeting, we lived in different states and would text often. After a few months, I asked him if his cell phone also made phone calls. Thirty seconds later, he called – and then I knew.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: He took me to a beautiful part of the Appalachian Trail where he had hiked. As I was looking at a beautiful waterfall, I turned around, and he was on one knee and asked me if I would share all of his adventures with him in the future.
Q: What part of the wedding day are you most looking forward to?
A: I am most looking forward to our first kiss as a married couple and thinking about how many more will come in the future.
Q: How did you choose the venue where you will be married?
A: My parents, grandparents and sister were married there, and it is church that I grew up attending.
Q: What was the significance of the music played during your ceremony?
A: The recessional, Charles-Marie Widor’s “Toccata,” was played at my parents’ wedding and my sister’s wedding.
Q: Will you have something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue? What are they?
A: Old, my grandfather’s monogrammed handkerchief; borrowed, my sister’s sequined wedding sneakers; new, a sixpence for “forever” good fortune.
