Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Wedding – Ellie + Matt

Ellie and Matt are college sweethearts who met on the charming campus of Davidson College.  Ellie a field hockey player, and Matt a football star, they were the perfect match.  These two have the biggest hearts, and nothing shows that more than the professional paths they each ended up taking.  Ellie is now a school psychologist, while Matt is in med school.  This day was so special to be a part of. The minute I met Ellie and Matt I instantly fell in love with them; their witty personalities, strong relationships with their families, and their college romance story. They are just the absolute best!

Hall & Webb did a wonderful job making Ellie’s wedding vision come to life.  The enormous tent set on the back lawn was the center of the celebration.  It served as the ceremony site after a little rain rolled in (but you’d never know that wasn’t the original plan – Ellie and Matt had such amazingly positive attitudes about it), and was lit up with soft twinkling string lights (a personal fave) for the dance party that boogied all night to the ATL Groove Factory. They were AWESOME!

From a very personal place in my heart, I wish these two a lifetime of happiness.
