Blue Spring Columbia SC Wedding
Blue Spring Columbia SC Wedding.
Q: What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day? A: Will was adamant that we avoid a first look before I went down the aisle. When the doors opened, I burst into tears and my dad had to slow me down so I didn’t run down the aisle to him. It was so special seeing his face light up as the magnitude of the moment hit him!
Q: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you'd like to share with other couples planning their day? A: Weddings are about celebrating your love for one another with the people that you care about the most. Don't let yourself get lost in trying to make everyone happy - if everything goes wrong, you'll still be married at the end of the day.
Q: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal. A: During my freshman year of college at Furman University, I went down to Charleston for St. Patrick’s Day. I met Will through mutual friends and thought he was super cute. Five months later, we both transferred to Clemson for totally unrelated reasons, and we’ve been together ever since!A couple weekends after we moved into a rental house together, Will dragged a friend and I up to the mountains out of nowhere because, “the weather is nice and he wanted to go hiking.” We ended up hiking Black Balsam Knob in Pisgah National Forest, which has incredible 360 degree views along the entire mountain and is where Will backpacks all the time. As we were hiking, a rainstorm was rolling in up the mountainside. When we reached the top, Will took a knee pretty casually, and asked, “Hey Liz, will you marry me?” Mako tried to intrude and Riley carried the ring up the mountain. I started crying and laughing at the same time. Once we outran the rain for a few minutes, Will stopped and said his few more special words.
