Heathrow Country Club Wedding
September 30, 2017 | Taylor and James
Classic style and traditional elements, Taylor and James had their Heathrow Country Club wedding surrounded by their closest friends and family! Starting with a beautiful church ceremony at Winter Park Presbyterian,
Taylor’s dress was one of our favorites. Starting with a gown she selected, they fully customized it with a lace bodice and sleeves, crystal belt and veil. She wore simple white heels and carried an heirloom handkerchief. Stephanie joined them at the Alfond Inn while they were getting ready before meeting the guys at the church. Being traditional, Taylor and James opted for a “first touch” before the ceremony – so they didn’t see each other but could still pray together and share in their excitement for the day!
A long courtship
Whenever I’m coming up with what to say about our couples, I always think about the stories of how they met! There’s such an excitement to hearing about their story and wondering if they knew where that first meeting would lead. For Taylor and James, they had known each other through church almost their entire lives, but only recognized each other from a distance. It wasn’t until college when Taylor ran in to James and decided she would “be social” (her words!) and went up to him to talk. Nearly a year of lunches, casual meetings and texts, James asked her out on their first “official” date.
As far as unique proposals go, this one is one of my favorites! James actually proposed to Taylor during an escape room!
“I pulled out a clue and a box. I handed them both to him – thinking they were both clues. He handed the box back to me and said to open it. I turned back towards where I had found the box and opened it and found the ring inside! I turned around and he was down on one knee and simply asked, “Taylor, will you marry me?” I said yes!”
