Alanna and Jacob got married on August 25th, 2019…exactly 10 years to the day after their first date. They had been planning on a large wedding, to be held in Spring of 2020, but just were not enjoying the planning process the way they had dreamed. On an impulse, Alanna booked the Gwinnett County Historical Courthouse ballroom, 6 weeks in advance, and decided to have an intimate celebration instead!
Everything came together beautifully. The weather was perfect, even a bit cool (very rare for August in Georgia!), and smiles were abundant. The bride’s sister made the cake and centerpieces, and her father built her a huge arbor to bring home after the wedding.
Alanna found a dress she liked online and ordered it from China, sight-unseen. A few alterations later, and she had her dream dress. Their closest family and friends were present, and the tears flowed all day. After the wedding, Jacob and Alanna enjoyed a short stay-cation honeymoon nearby in Atlanta.
