Emily and Jeremy met when he was in Myrtle Beach for a family reunion. She was having dinner with her best friend, Nicole, and right as they were finishing up Jeremy sat down at the table across from them. Emily noticed him right away and she and Nicole decided to stay and try to get his attention. Almost two hours later, they were about to give up when Jeremy’s cousin called over to their table and asked if they would stay if Jeremy would buy them a drink. Emily immediately said yes and after hanging out the rest of the night, they had their first official date the next day at Carolina Roadhouse and have been together ever since. Jeremy proposed on a cruise the pair took to celebrate their two-year anniversary.
The October wedding was held at the Southern Living Showcase Home by Classic Homes and was exactly that—classic and Southern. Emily had their wedding date stitched into the underside of her floral and lace dress from Amanda’s Collection. The pair said their vows under live oaks and had navy and coral incorporated throughout the decor. The small wedding was intimate, with lights strung in the trees lending a beautiful and romantic feel once the sun went down. Aside from the gorgeous four-tier vanilla and red velvet cake by Pawleys Island Bakery, there were individual mini cakes by Pink Pineapple Bakery at each table setting.
Looking back, Emily would not have changed a single detail of her perfect big day. She says, “I’m so thankful to have had the wedding that we did and I wish I could relive the day over and over again!”
