Before I get into the GORGEOUSNESS of Jana + Derek’s wedding, you must hear their proposal story…
“Derek planned a special date while we were on a beach trip this past summer. He planned carefully to make sure we were waking on the beach at sunset. We sat down on the stairs of a quaint beach house admiring our surroundings. Nervously Derek said he had a question for me. He got on one knee and said “I’m so in love with you and I can’t imagine my life without you. You’re so perfect for me, will you marry me?” And then he said, “Oops, I’m supposed to have the ring in my hand, aren’t I?” We laughed, snot cried, and of course I said “Yes, Yes, Yes!” as he dug the ring out of his pocket. We then enjoyed an ocean front dinner at a restaurant in Seaside. Derek planned an after-party nearby where we were greeted with campagne from our close friends to celebrate. It was a night we’ll never forget!” SERIOUSLY, SO CUTE!!!
Now that you have gotten to know a bit about J + D, we can gush over their wedding!!! Jana + Derek had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at The Rose Garden at The Atlanta Botanical Garden in Atlanta, GA followed by fantastic reception. One of our FAVORITE moments were during their ceremony… Jana + Derek watered a small plant that they will keep and grow!! SUCH A GREAT IDEA!!! We are so happy for the two of them and wish them all the best!!!
