Drew proposed with our sweet golden retriever, Summitt. After the ceremony, Sum- mitt ran down the aisle to us and lead us out as we made our exit. She was our special “dog of honor”.
One moment that stands out was the very end of our vows. Being avid and passion- ate sports fans, we come from two VERY different fan bases. Drew is an Alabama fan. Amanda is a Tennessee fan. This rivalry runs so deep that we each ended our vows with “...I promise all these things...EXCEPT on the 3rd Saturday in October...Go Vols!/Roll Tide!” It was a funny, but memorable moment everyone enjoyed and that theme carried over to the reception including each school’s fight song being played, and a shaker send off.
We chose not to do a first look, but found a way to turn it into a special moment where Drew’s mom used an old blue handkerchief from my dad to blindfold him to allow for a special moment talking and praying before the ceremony without breaking tradition.
After a honeymoon at Sandals Montego Bay, Jamaica, the couple is now residing in Huntsville.
