When you meet a thoughtful person, you will never forget the impression they made on you. Sarah was my most thoughtful bride, she pulled on all of my heart strings. Her entire wedding was packed full of details and heirlooms. Sarah honored so many people, she especially honored Haven's father, Mr.Skip. Mr.Skip was not well and able to attend the wedding, but he was present through the entirety of Sarah and Haven's wedding. She had a brooch with his photo on her bouquet and she gifted her husband with cuff links that held special memories between Haven and his father. This really made Haven smile!
They also held an intimate ceremony prior to their wedding for Mr.Skip to be a part of. What a gem it is to be honored in the way Sarah and Haven decided to honor Mr.Skip and other family members.
The speeches given by Sarah's sister, Heather (Maid of Honor), Amanda ( Matron of Honor), Mike (Best Man), and of course Mr.Ray ( Sarah's Father) were all testaments on who they were individually and as one. Sarah and Haven are literately what fairy-tales are made of!
A letter to Sarah and Haven,
I want to thank you for allowing myself and team for giving us the pleasure to be apart of your special day. Your day was indeed special and you both have made quite the impression on me. I pray that you both continue to look at each other the way you looked at each other on this day. God bless you both!!

This beautiful chair sat front row to their ceremony. It was Sarah's grandmothers.
We loved how Sarah pinned a photo of her father in law on her bouquet.
Shaun watched his bride come down the aisle on the arm of her grandfather, Peepaw. Two of the most important men in her life stood next to her and right in front of her. He gave his granddaughter away to her husband to be , with so much approval and love. The church was filled with not only their love and support for each other but the love and support of their family and friends. It wasn't until Nakiah's family sung "All of Me", that I began to tear up. My heart was so full because once again I had the opportunity to witness something so special happen right in front of me. I was in pure awe when they began to sing "Perfect" and "Why I love you". Nakiah Began to walk down the aisle, and I couldn't believe the sincere joy that filled the church's atmosphere. I felt at home!
"I now pronounce you husband and wife." The room roared with excitement and even more excitement as we got ready to celebrate at the reception. The reception displayed their true love , and that's their love for the Florida Gators. The Tables were set up with beautiful blue, orange, and with hints of Gold throughout. Don't tell my husband, but this Georgia girl almost became a Gators fan!
We all admired the attention to detail as we was danced and ate some of the town's most delicious dinner!
I could even feel my little foot tapping as they danced and shared laughs with the guests and bridal party. The tapping and dancing stopped briefly as Nakiah and Shaun shared announced they had a surprise announcement. Believe me we were all at the edge of our seats! All of the sudden there was a gasp of excitement heard across the room! Nakiah and Shaun shared with us that on this day they were actually celebrating their one year anniversary. The faces were of shock, laughter , and excitement. It truly was a celebration.
Watch out Brunswick, Georgia Nakiah and Shaun may be the new couple goals! Their story will continue to inspire others, I'm sure!
