Real Engaged Wedding

What better way to celebrate this couple’s soon-to-be first anniversary than showcasing their beautiful day on our blog?! Sarah Crouch & Nick Elam said said “I do” on December 30, 2017, in St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church before celebrating afterwards with their beloved family and friends. We have all heard of a New Year’s Eve wedding, but we think the idea of extending the celebration to New Year’s Eve EVE is even more exciting!

It was a joy to get to know Sarah and her sweet mother as Engaged Wedding Library helped guide them through the planning process. They did a lovely job of keeping this winter wedding day classy with black bridesmaids’ dresses to match the groomsmen’s tuxedos, while incorporating an extra touch of sweet elegance with blush and gold accents.

Brides, live in the moment! Your day will go by in a flash! Enjoy every moment, and be present in every moment! My favorite part of our wedding day was our first look! I loved getting to see Nick before the ceremony. It made me feel at peace about the whole day.
