Sadie and Ruston were drawn to the historical charm of The Hazlehurst House. It was a warm fall day with a little bit of rain. The colors of fall were beginning to change for us. They met in college and Ruston proposed the fall before their wedding. He was living in Columbus and when she went to visit him one weekend. During that visit, he suggested that they visit, Callaway Gardens. That was the weekend that hurricane Nate was coming in and she didn’t want to go walk outside in the pouring rain. When she said we should wait for another weekend Ruston kept trying to come up with reasons why they should go that particular weekend despite the rain. She began to wonder if he had something planned. We went to lunch where her mom “just happened to be in the area.” After some convincing, Sadie decided to go. They went to the butterfly house where they ended up being the only ones there due to the weather. Ruston got down on one knee and proposed! Their day was as relaxed as these two are! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Cleveland!
