Wedding at The Foundry Athens

What a fantastic day! I just smiled as I put this post together thinking about how fun these two are! I mean just magnanimous¬†and so was their day! You know I love a good love story, so he’s a lil’ snippet of theirs ūüėČ

Sarah: “We met while working at Camp Thunderbird in the summer of 2009. Because we worked at different activities, we didn’t spend a whole lot of time together during the day. Adam would pretty regularly come inside to my activity to “cool off” though. We both really know the real reason was so he could hang out with me. ūüėČ We became more acquainted with each other throughout the course of the summer, but didn’t really get to know each other until the last week of camp, and more specifically the last night of camp at an end of the summer party. We both had been thinking of the other during the summer, and finally admitted it to each other that night. Our first date was in the fall of 2009. Adam came to Athens to visit and to see a concert at the Classic Center. We had dinner at the Varsity and then headed downtown for the show. We spent the weekend exploring Athens and getting to know each other better. Even though we had a great time that weekend, we didn’t officially start dating until a year and a half later when we both decided that the distance between Columbia and Athens wasn’t a good enough reason to not be together.

Adam: “I proposed on the last weekend of April. Although Sarah knew it was coming before the Summer, she had no idea it would be that soon. I had one of Sarah’s best friends, Elizabeth, pick up the ring from the jewelry store in Augusta because it closed before I could get into town that weekend. We had dinner with Elizabeth and her fiance on Saturday night, where the exchange of the ring was made. Sarah was completely oblivious to all of this. The following day, we visited the Augusta river walk where I had originally planned to propose. We spent our time there talking about what our lives would be like when we got married and imagining what our wedding day would be like. Little did she know, her ring was in my pocket the whole time. The only problem was that because it was such a beautiful day, there were a lot of people out at the river walk. I knew that Sarah would want a private proposal that didn’t include strangers, so I figured that I would wait until we were back at Sarah’s place to propose. When we got home, Sarah went into her room to take her shoes off, and I was on one knee in the living room when she returned. I had a sweet speech prepared, but couldn’t make it through the whole thing when I saw her face. I got through as much of my speech as I could, and she said yes when she could finally speak again. We called our families and friends and had a nice celebration dinner downtown afterwards. The rest is history :)”

There are barely words to describe the beauty of these cliffs. Fortunately this is a photography blog and we both know you’re not here to read my words anyway ; ) But my gosh, what a blessing to be able to travel to Ireland this year and capture these two against such an incredible backdrop. As we woke on the day of this shoot to a cloudy somewhat drizzly day, we nervously set out for the Cliffs, praying¬†for sun. It came out just in time and couldn’t have been more glorious! Holy. Moly! Thank you Jeannie & Brendan, for bringing us into your story and this great adventure! Speaking of their story, it’s so cute so¬†I had to share a bit of it from Jeannie below…

We met through a friend in 2012 and first laid eyes on each other at the rock climbing gym. I was seeing someone at the time but we became close friends. I got my first teaching job that year and Brendan came to help me set up the classroom. He also helped me move into my first apartment. I found myself calling him all the time to hang out and soon we built a strong friendship over frozen yogurt, movies, road trips and long chats.
One night in October 2013, when we were¬†hanging out as usual watching tv, Brendan leaned over and¬†kissed me. At first¬†I didn’t respond so he kissed me again! ¬†I¬†kissed back, smiled, and asked “What took you so long?!”. The rest is history. We¬†still have debates on who liked whom first…
