Congratulations Katie and Cameron | Destination Wedding in New Smyrna Beach

Katie and Cameron enjoyed a beautiful destination wedding here in Florida with their closest friends and family. How they met is a beautiful love story in itself, and I would like to share with you some snippets from the bride herself:  “Cameron and I have known each other since freshman year of high school. We both attended the same church and had mutual friends, but never really ran in the same crowd. It wasn’t until a college outing for church in February 2010, at an ironic Chick-fil-a run-in that we reunited. Not having been anything but acquaintances prior, there was an awkward greeting and small talk… We spent the evening catching up on life. We enjoyed each other’s company so much that we hung out with other people in groups for almost three months before my mother had to sit us down and tell us we were dating. We laughed and said we were just friends. It wasn’t until a late afternoon phone call asking if he could pick me up for Sunday night service and take me to dinner after that that things really began. I agreed over the phone, freaked out and canceled through a text.  We still cannot pin-point the actual first date we went on because we just kind of “happened.” Cameron’s dad always recalls the day he came home from the first outing we went on and told his parents, ‘I am going to marry that girl with the pretty blue eyes.'”

The Engagement: “Cameron led me on a scavenger hunt taking us to all our special places around town. The final destination was a popular area called Callaway Gardens lit for Christmas. I had wanted to go for so long and Cameron knew exactly where he was going to pop the question. He started to pull the car over in the middle of the lights show and I told him he couldn’t stop. He had to keep moving like the other cars. Little did I know I ruined his initial plans.  As we exited the trail of lights I told him I needed to use the restroom and we ran into the Callaway Country Store. As I walked out and he got on one knee and proposed. It was perfect. If you knew Cameron and his southern charm, this location was ideal. He was so nervous he couldn’t even stop his hand from shaking long enough to put the ring on after I had tackled him to the ground screaming ‘yes!'”

Something Old– Diamond Heart Necklace (given to me by my mother-in-law and was Cameron’s late grandmothers. Also, his sister that passed away 4 years ago wore it often. It definitely had sentimental value.)

Something New– My beautiful new diamond stud earrings given to me by Cameron the night before our wedding.

Something Borrowed–  My veil was loaned to me by my mentor and friend Nicole McHargue (wife of the pastor that married us, Kyle McHargue).

Something Blue-A blue pearl that attached to my bouquet ordered off of Etsy. It was engraved with our initials and date of the wedding.

“We focused throughout our whole relationship preparing for the marriage and not for the wedding, hence the laid-back atmosphere. Our faith in Jesus Christ and reliance on Him and the path He has for our life is what keeps our romance alive. We are reminded daily that love is not a feeling, but an action; not a fleeting emotion, but a daily choice. We both understand that we must find our completion in Him and not in each other. We will always mess up and fail one another, but the forgiveness we received daily from God is what we try our best to portray within our own marriage.”
