Yellow makes me happy. And so does the bride’s red hair :) Alexandra, in lemon yellow Luxury Rebel Chita pumps, and Josh, in matching Chuck Taylors, exchanged vows at the Four Oaks Manor in Hamilton, Georgia. We smiled when we saw that the bridesmaids + groomsmen also got in on the yellow trend with their own shoes! The bride wore an embellished Alfred Angelo gown + simple tulle veil. 2010 is all about bows (my wedding dress has one or two itself!), and if you look hard you can see the back bow detailing on Alexandra’s dress. What do you think of the bow trend? Check back soon for more images from the husband and wife duo at Scobey Photography!
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met at Georgia Tech in the Music Listening Room where Josh was working. I thought Josh was cute, and asked his name, but he wouldn’t tell me! He claims he didn’t know I was talking to him. Some of the other employees just gave me hints – like his name starts with J – and made me guess. The next semester, I got a job at the MLR, too, and arranged my schedule to be almost the same as Josh’s. It took a few months, but we finally went on our first date in March of 2003.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Fun, relaxed and perfect.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Josh’s favorite part was the food and, of course, our guests.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I was a two-dress bride. Since our engagement lasted just under four months, I had to find a dress fast. I tried on about 11 dresses with my mom around Christmas, and had to make a decision that day. I ended up buying a beautiful dress that just wasn’t me. So in late February, after much debate, Josh offered to buy the dress I really wanted from Alfred Angelo. He was willing to drive to any of the surrounding states looking for a store with my size in-stock! It turns out my local store had a NEW sample in my size and was willing to sell it to me. Even with slight alterations, the dress was ready with two weeks to spare. I LOVED my dress. The pockets were the main feature I just knew I had to have. If I could wear the dress everyday, I would.
Describe your wedding flowers: Wild, simple and perfect. We used a lot of daisies and spray flowers in yellows and whites. The bouquets were loose and natural. Laurens Floral Art gave me everything I wanted, including peonies in my bouquet! We never met in person before the wedding, but he really picked up on my vision and pulled it together while staying within my budget.
