Eric and I met in high school, around 2006, when we were about 16. We had grown up in the same town, going to the same schools and church. I had dated his best friend in high school, but Eric and I always had a special connection that kept us in touch even after high school. The boyfriend and I (obviously) did not last but Eric and I remained friends into our undergrad. Although we lost touch around 2010, my junior year, we knew the whereabouts of one another and once Eric had started rotations for grad school, he popped back up into my life when I was living in Atlanta in 2016. We reunited, and the rest is history.
Eric proposed at the top of Lookout Mountain in Tennessee on January 1, 2018. We started planning within a month and by the end of March, we had a theme, a venue and a dress. Between my love for Disney, personal connection with Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and Eric's last name "Rose," Beauty and the Beast was the most obvious theme. Not to mention, we would be getting married at Rhodes Hall AKA The Castle on Peachtree.Continue reading »
We found the most amazing caterer, photographer, DJ and officiant. Our photographer, Rebecca Cerasani, capture all of the magic from our engagement shoot and on the big day. We had subtle nods to Beauty and the Beast throughout the wedding; including, floating rose centerpieces, gold clocks, a silver mirror, stacks of books, a tea pot, royal blue dresses and, of course, rose bouquets. Our DJ, Lee McKellar of Party Time Productions, kept the party alive. He played some of our favorite songs that we could sing and dance along to.
With glow sticks in the air, drinks flowing and amazing music, the evening was absolutely perfect. Our wedding cake, a non traditional cheesecake by Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes was a huge hit. There wasn't a crumb left! All of our guests went back for seconds and thirds of food by LowCountry Catering. Not to mention, the beautiful, and delicious, cupcakes by Tabitha Austin of For Heavens Cakes Georgia that were completely devoured.
It's hard to choose a favorite moment when they were all so wonderful and flew by so quickly on the day of our wedding. I suppose, at the end of the day, the best part was walking out, hand in hand, with my best friend, ready to start the rest of our lives together.
