Today we get to feature a lovely wedding from Photography and Design by Jenny. Special thanks to Jenny for reaching out to us and sharing these gorgeous photos. You can see more of Jenny's amazing work on the Photography and Design by Jenny Facebook page.
Meet Elizabeth and Chris. Chris went to Clemson and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Construction Science Management. Elizabeth went to North Greenville University and graduated in 2009 with a degree in International Business.
"We were together almost a year when Chris decided to plan a surprise Saturday adventure for me. I woke up to flower petals directing me around the living room to a scavenger hunt. He left me little messages to get up, get dressed, and get out the door to find him somewhere in Columbia. His last clue included a reference to Clemson football (his true love second to only me). I found him at the spot where we had our first date, Panera Bread for breakfast. From there he recreated our whole first date. To round out the morning and the surprise, he planned a picnic at the River Walk. As we walked up to the picnic tables, Chris asked me to walk out onto the rocks with him. When we got there, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! He had asked my family the week before and even picked out the most beautiful ring. It was a complete surprise!
"We had such a great time adding in Clemson themed touches to our wedding like a tiger paw groom's cake, orange accents (flowers, napkins, and candy), and tiger paw lapel pins for the guys instead of boutonnieres. The two most exciting details for us was having the mascot join us at the reception (of course we walked in to Tiger Rag) as a huge surprise for our guests and getting to take some beautiful pictures inside The Cathedral, I mean Death Valley. We even made our grand exit while our friends and family shook orange and white pom poms."
"Go all out! Plan a surprise or two to keep your guests on their feet. We switched up the music for a more personal feel, and people loved that after we were announced as Mr. & Mrs., we danced our way back down the aisle to Hall & Oats "You Make My Dreams Come True." Make your wedding yours - not your mother's or your mother-in-law's. This is your day! But don't be afraid to ask for help. Your family will do anything for you and they want you to have an amazing day!"
