My father and I planned a special first dance. We made up a mash of different favorite songs from both of us and danced to it. Make sure to keep the night fun. The night will go by so fast so here is something to help remember the day forever. My advice is to remember your wedding day with your 5 senses, one thing you smelled throughout the day, one thing you touched throughout the day, one thing you tasted throughout the day, one thing you saw, and one thing you heard throughout the day.

For our leaving exit right after we were announced husband and wife at the wedding, all the wedding party danced to a small choreographed dance before leaving the ceremony to lighten things up. We wanted laughter and smiles the whole time.

We ordered our wedding invitations from Printers and Stationers Inc in Florence AL. They worked with us to create our special invitations and signs for the wedding. We also ordered from Etsy for our bridal shower invitations and save the dates. Magnetic save the dates are the best to go on a fridge so people do not forget about your wedding date.

My husband and I met at Lee Heights Baptist church in 2013 and have been together for nearly 8 years before getting engaged at Tate Farms in October of 2020. I guess you can say FINALLY!!! We knew each other very well and are best friends. We chose our wedding date to be right before July 4th due to when we got engaged in October, there were fireworks right after I said yes. It had to be a sign of the date we would get married (to include fireworks too). Always put God first and your partner second and the rest will fall into place!
