Samantha and Chris had their beautiful wedding at The Club at Lake Sinclair, and everything was perfect. That Saturday was one of the first days that it actually felt like Fall, so it was amazing! Fall weddings are my favorite, so I was definitely in my element. Their ceremony site overlooked the greens of the golf course, and their reception was inside the club house. Samantha and Chris are such a laid back couple, so it made their wedding day such an ease! I always love sharing how my couples met, so here’s their story!
How They Met
When I was a student at GCSU, I joined the student police academy and they had us do ride-alongs with officers. The night I picked happened to be the night Chris was working! So that’s how we met, but it wasn’t until I got hired on with the police department that we really hit it off. He made a point to be in the parking lot every morning he was working so he could talk to me. Once I graduated the police academy I was put on his shift and after a few months getting to know each other better we started dating!
He proposed after his last shift working at GCPD by the fountain on campus. He wanted to walk around in the early morning hours like we used to and take some pictures to commemorate our time working there. It was just the two of us on campus, no students, no classes, just us. It was so nice! After a few pictures by the fountain he proposed (in uniform)! Also, our wedding was the 4th anniversary of our first date!
