Laura + Brent Married | Muscadine Vine | Atlanta Wedding Photographer
Greetings fans! We’ve got an adorable story on the blog today. Meet Laura and Brent! As you may know for each client interview one of my very first questions is “How were you engaged?” I always find it so hilarious that our guys have such a hard time getting everything perfect to ask us to be their wives. Bowie had the such a hard time getting me to his perfect location in City Walk because I was starving. I did not want to leave the restaurant for the fear of our device would not reach and we would miss our reservation. I have to say that poor Brent probably had it worst of all. Here is the story in the words of the bride:
Brent planned the most amazing engagement day ever. Here’s how it all went down:
Brent usually works on Saturdays. Friday February 1st, I was sickly, but enjoyed hosting the Stephens’ over for dinner and a movie. The next morning, Brent arrived at my condo to see how I was feeling before he went in to work. Brent came in, sat on my bed, and told me to get up and get ready. No way. Not happening. I’m sick, I feel terrible, all I want to do is sleep in and rest. It was about 9am.
“Wait… why aren’t you at work?”
“Because It’s our engagement day!”
What?!?! After a series of “Whats?!” and “What do you means?!” I wept….
I think I started crying for a variety of reasons. 1) Why did you just tell me it was our engagement day? 2) I was sick and I knew I had the potential to ruin whatever he had planned. 3) Joy! Excitement! Anticipation!
I got up and started getting ready. As I was getting ready, Brent swung by the store to grab all the sickly necessities: Airborne, ibuprofen, tissues, etc. He returned to my apartment with my car filled up with gas my phone fully charge and asked , “Are you ready?”. Ready for what?
He then read me the first location clue.
While first impressions aren’t always best, I promise our pies are guaranteed to impress.
It was Fellini’s on Peachtree where we actually met for the first time when Brent came down to visit a friend and take a look at Emory as a potential employer.
I’m sure by now you understand Brent had created this amazing scavenger hunt. Poor Laura was so sick for the entire day – but love over powers even sickness and she pushed forward heading to many locations that were special in their relationship! At each location she received another clue. I LOVE Brent’s create write-ups for each location and I want to share just a few more:
Eons ago I ruled all the land, stomping and chomping smaller dinos was grand! These days I hang out ’round this fine museum, being oohed and ahhed my so many children. (Fernbank)
We dined like the Incans and had a first fine dinner. I’ve known since that night that you were a winner. (Machu Picchu)
The list goes on and on. He really out did himself in this adventure. It’s been such a long time since I read through their story, yet I’m still in tears!The final destination of this scavenger hunt was back a Laura’s apartment. See, as Brent sent Laura on a “scrapbook story” of their love, he was back at her place planning the final moments. As Laura comes back from the last location she is greeted with candles, flowers and in her words “a dream.” He asked her to marry him, and of course she said YES!
You can imaging from this amazing story that this wedding was a day of beauty, light and joy! We were so thankful to see Laura and Brent take this amazing step in their lives. We were so thrilled to work with Stella Harper Events once again as well as a new amazing vendor Juli Vaughn Designs. Check out this beautiful day at Muscadine Vine! Cheers to this beautiful couple and as always CHEERS TO LOVE!!
