Oh if this isn’t the sweetest video of the cutest couple then I don’t know what is! You can really feel the love between these two on both their wedding day and in their “behind the scenes” moments with the camera. Lots of love to Three Ring Media for sharing this film with us. We love it!

From the Bride…In the summer of 2009, we went to see the Disney/Pixar film Up; Dave was instantly inspired. He called my family to inquire about an heirloom aquamarine that I had mentioned to him, but refused to divulge his proposal plans. Once he acquired the family stone, he met with a jeweler to create a custom setting. Then, he called a local hot air balloon company. Flying in a hot air balloon was a bucket list item of mine. Once I learned that Dave had planned a ballooning outing for us, I was too excited to even begin to question what he was up to! When our balloon approached Lake Lanier, a beautiful area north of Atlanta, Dave awkwardly positioned himself on one knee in the little balloon basket. My face lit up when I saw the aquamarine that I’d had my heart set on since I was a little girl. I flung my arms around him and said yes. We were greeted on the ground with champagne.

The vintage and whimsical nature of our proposal inspired the style of our wedding. We chose an antebellum home as our wedding venue and incorporated many “Old South” details into our decor, right down to the fresh cotton blooms in the bouquets. I went for a very vintage look with a lace trumpet gown with a puddle train, complete with birdcage veil. We incorporated a subtle balloon motif throughout our DIY stationary suite to convey the whimsy of our proposal. In fact, our Save the Dates were actual balloons with our wedding date printed on them!

These meaningful quirks our loved ones brought to our wedding day are our greatest memories. Our guests got creative with our “fauxtobooth” props, released the inner child upon raiding the candy buffet, and broke out some never-before-seen salsa dancing skills on the dance floor! Dave and I could not stop beaming throughout the entire day; it was incredible to share such an incredible day with each other and with so many people we love!
