That blue wall? I’ve been obsessed with it for a while. But it’s in a weird place. Sarah and I have known each other for a while so I felt comfortable taking more of a risk with her (hope you’re ok with that Sarah!) It TOTES paid off. I mean COME ON!!! FAAAAAAVE!!!! It doesn’t hurt that these two are ridiculously good looking and oh-so-stupid-in-love.

I just can’t…I mean…I love this. Her makeup was done by the very talented Leigh Ann of Make You.

SARAH + TODD

THE FIRST DATE : (as told by Sarah) It was 8am on a Saturday morning, he made us coffee at his house and then we went to Lowe’s. Yes, Lowe’s. Todd was finishing a renovation and had asked if I would help pick the finishing touches. We picked out cabinets, knobs, granite, and picked up balloons for  surprise birthday party I was helping with that evening. It was a great unconventional first date! The next night, Todd arranged an awesome evening on his back patio complete with a cheese tray, wine and good music.

DESCRIBE TODD ON THE DATE : A gentleman, conversational, warm, funny, adorable, kind, surprisingly real

FUNNIEST THING SARAH DID ON THE DATE : We were at a granite warehouse and she was carrying around a clipboard taking notes for us. At one point, she leaned in real close to me as we were talking through everything we’d seen. She was close enough I could smell her perfume and her hair and I liked it! The tenor of the morning was already really good, but that moment was a confirmation that she was enjoying herself and getting comfortable with me. To this day I still tease her about that.

HOW DID YOU ASK HER : I wanted the proposal to be thoughtful and fun without being a spectacle. So I made it an adventure with 4 different locations over a period of 7 hours. I worked in advance with the Wine Bistro, Pistachia Vera and Lindey’s to have tables reserved, food and drinks pre-ordered, and a hand-written card at each location. It was fun because the staff at each location knew what I was up to they rolled the red carpet out for us. Sarah was having so much fun and really enjoyed the unknown element of where the day was going. After dinner I capped off the day on one knee at a small park about a block from Lindey’s. After an emphatic “yes”, she proceeded to giggle for about 15 minutes. We didn’t want to leave and have the moment end.

MOST EXCITED ABOUT THE BIG DAY :
(Sarah) Saying “I do”, seeing him all dressed up, wearing my dress!
(Todd) I look forward to calling Sarah my wife. I look forward to being in front of our family, friends, and God and committing myself to her for the rest of my life. I can’t wait to see her in her dress. I can’t wait to see her smile and her joy as we celebrate this special day.

ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES : Don’t sweat the small stuff. No one will even know half the things you have in your mind (or on your Pinterest board); it doesn’t hinder the fact you’re marrying the love of your life!

ADVICE FOR FUTURE GROOMS : Men don’t get into flowers, dresses, and all the above – we all know this. But it doesn’t mean you can’t get into making the process special for her. Make it fun when you’re meeting vendors, picking stuff out, and planning. She’s so excited that sometimes she’s just going to want to talk about it…just because. Let her and listen attentively. (Editor’s note : That might be the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard.) 😉
