LOVE STORY: It became clear to Chris at some point during their March 2011 trip to Italy that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Jackie. With that in mind, he came back to the States with marriage on his mind. However, since Chris really likes to plan things, it would be another couple of months before he would propose to Jackie.

Starting in June of that year, they were playing on a summer league frisbee team together on Wednesday nights. One Wednesday night, Chris told Jackie that he could not make the game because he had a work dinner, and since Jackie is fairly gullible, she believed him. However, as she would later find out, Chris had actually been to see Jackie’s parents to discuss marrying Jackie. Though Chris was quite nervous, the Sullivans politely gave him their blessing.

One lovely Sunday in June of 2011, Chris picked Jackie up from her house and took her to Percy Warner Park for a hike. What Jackie didn’t know was that this hike would lead to her engagement to a guy that occasionally gets really bad haircuts. At the top of Luke Lea Heights in Percy Warner Park, Chris showed Jackie a video our friends helped him make and proposed. Fortunately, her answer was yes, because Jackie’s parents and friends were waiting at the bottom of the hike for a surprise picnic.

 

WEDDING DAY: My favorite thing about the wedding was that both of our families were able to stay at the bed and breakfast on site all weekend. It made the whole day very relaxing and enjoyable. Everyone came in to Legacy Farms for rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on Friday night, and both families along with the maid of honor and best man stayed that night. It was incredible to be able to wake up already at the wedding and reception site and just hang out with my family and friends until it was time to get ready. It completely took away the stress of having to be different places on time or pick stuff up last minute. The only hiccup in the event came from our best man who tried to sneak in the reception hall and nab a bottle wine while practicing his speech with the maid of honor after the rehearsal dinner. They set off the building alarm and got reprimanded by the site manager, but this was more hilarious than anything else.

 

WEDDING DETAILS: It seemed very fitting for us to have an outdoor wedding since Chris and I both enjoy spending a lot of time outside, but that was really the only vision we had going into the wedding planning process. I picked out gray as the color for bridesmaid dresses since it was a neutral color and I had no idea of color schemes for flowers or decor yet. We ended up with gray and yellow for wedding colors since I really like sunflowers. I think it ended up being very bright, happy, and simple.
