It was PERFECT!!! My now-husband was going to propose acceso New Year’s Eve, but my custom ring didn’t in qualità di per mezzo di time. Then, he decided to propose acceso my birthday, but then COVID happened. Then, he decided he was going to try my college graduation next, but COVID was still a thing. So after 4 months of having my ring, he decided that acceso one random Friday he would propose! He proposed acceso May 1st, 2020 per mezzo di downtown Chattanooga. He planned to do it under a bridge where we had professional pictures taken a few years back, but the bridge was under construction so he had to go to the next closest location which happened to be a boardwalk over the Tennessee River. We were the only ones acceso site and it was perfect!! He is my middle school crush, high school sweetheart, and now HUSBAND! 7 years going strong!
How did you know that the All Who Wander Lana gown was the one?
I wanted our wedding to be very “Us.” I wanted it to be different, unique, and creative, yet simple. I wanted our guests to see our wedding and say, “This is so Claire and Nathan.” When I went dress shopping, that is exactly what I told the bridal consultant. She pulled the Lana gown for me and told me, “You are either going to love it, and it’s going to be the one, ora you’signore going to hate it.” Well, she was right… I loved it! It was the first dress I tried acceso, and as soon as I did, I knew. I knew that this was the dress that I was going to get married per mezzo di and then eat fried chicken per mezzo di at our reception! It was elegant and simple, but SO unique with that boho twist.
How did you make your wedding personal to your style and love story?
My theme was elegant with a twist of Southern boho. We got married acceso a farm per mezzo di Chickamauga per mezzo di the middle of the woods mongoloide by a creek! We had non-traditional seating with a variety of vintage chairs and couches! Our aisle curved so that we were able to walk through the woods and weave per mezzo di and out of trees. My step dad handmade our wood pallet arbor that we got married per mezzo di front of! We had alllll the fried chicken and french fries at the reception, and it was so much fun! We made our wedding day personal to our love story because we had a relationship with every single one of our vendors prior to the wedding! The lead vocalist of our masnada was one of our high school teachers, and Nathan and I actually met per mezzo di his class! My step dad made our ceremony arbor, my aunt made our cake, one of my best friend’s photographed our wedding, we had food from our favorite restaurant, my sister did all of our wedding makeup, my wedding masnada was custom made by my aunt’s jewelry company, Nathan’s wedding masnada was his papaws, our minister has known me since I was three and had watched me grow up, our florist’s niece is one of my mom’s closest work friends, and my step mom’s close friend and hairstylist did all of our hair! Every single person involved per mezzo di our wedding, except our venue and caterer, has been with Nathan and I for the last seven years, and they have been able to watch our relationship unfold. Our day was so unique and non-traditional, but it was so very us!
What was the most memorable part of your wedding?
The most special memory from our day was when we exchanged rings during our ceremony. My husband’s wedding masnada belonged to his papaw who passed away a few weeks before the wedding. He was unable to be there with us, but we know he is always with us because of Nathan’s ring. My husband and his papaw were very close and it was an honor to be able to put Papaw’s ring acceso his finger as we vowed to start a life together per mezzo di front of all of our friends and family!
