Sara and Robert’s got married a couple weeks ago at North Macon Presbyterian Church followed by a beautiful reception at New City Church in Downtown Macon. I actually attend New City Church and I’ve always wanted to photograph a wedding there, so I was extremely excited for Sara and Robert’s big day! Everything was beautiful and picture perfect. I always love to share how the bride and groom met and their proposal story, so I had Sara share it!

How they met: “Robert and I met at the University of North Georgia. He had recently graduated from Georgia College, and volunteered to be an ultimate frisbee coach at UNG. Since the women’s team was small and rarely had enough members for practice, Robert and I saw each other 2 days a week at a coed practice and became fast friends.”

How he proposed: “My favorite place since childhood has been Savannah, GA. We took a weekend trip, and he proposed on Easter Sunday on the Savannah river boat. The boat photographer overheard him telling the staff his plans, so we have photos of the entire process!”

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Hunt! New City Wedding Venue New City Wedding Venue New City Wedding Venue New City Wedding Venue

I LOVED Sara’s wedding earrings, which was also a gift to each of her bridesmaids. Sara said, “My favorite wedding details were the Japanese earrings for my bridal party. While teaching English in Japan, I visited the site of the 2011 tsunami. It changed my outlook on life. Our earrings were custom made by women at the Nozomi Project, a business that provides jobs and support to single mothers effected by the tsunami.”

Sara’s dress fit her personality perfectly, and I think she looks like she stepped out of a Jane Austin book! Thanks to David’s Bridal for helping her find the perfect wedding dress.

I asked Sara if she had any tips for other brides planning a wedding, and this is what she said. “DIY has it’s important place, but spending a few extra dollars can make the wedding day stress-free! Find one part of the wedding that is the most worth it to you (pics/catering/DJ) and treat yourself. A good vendor will save you hours of worry. Other decisions can be made around your priority.”
