Casey and Austin both attended the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega, a beautiful campus set in the middle of surrounding mountains and the cutest downtown square. Casey was an RA (Resident’s Assistance) of one of the dorms on campus and Austin lived on her hall. One evening, in the common room of the dorm, they were having craft night. Austin asked to join in on the fun and he sat with them for awhile. After everyone went to bed, Austin sent Casey a text message admitting that she was the reason he visited the common room that evening. He asked her to coffee and they met up the very next day and have been dating ever since!
When Austin proposed, he got Casey’s very best friend involved. He had her pick up Casey and bring her to a little garden in the Dahlonega Square, a spot where Casey and Austin frequently visited together. This time, when Casey arrived to the quaint garden, Austin was there, reached out for her hand and led her to the fountain where he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Afterwards, they went to the very first Starbucks they visited on their first date!
Their wedding day took place in the very same town at a beautiful venue with southern charm and rustic beauty. Their gorgeous brunch wedding was perfect for them! They shared an emotional first look tucked away in a small garden and string lights. Casey’s bridal portraits were taken in quite/peaceful moments on the front porch only an early Saturday morning could provide. Her mom had tears in her eyes after her daughter was done putting on that beautiful wedding dress. Chef Cary’s Cuisine cooked up a beautiful breakfast for all of their guests.
Casey and Austin, I’m so glad your wedding day was everything you dreamed and more! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Sanders!!
