HOW THEY MET:
Paul and I (Brittany) met our junior year at the University of Georgia through a leadership program in the Terry College of Business. We were paired together for a group project, and I had a crush on him almost immediately. Paul made a bold move for our first date by driving me to his hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, to have dinner at his family’s steakhouse.
We met on UGA’s campus, and our closest friends and family were there to celebrate (including our professor from that first group project). Paul chose the prettiest spot on North Campus – the fountain on Herty Field. However, the fountain had been turned off, which only happens a couple times per year. Although we did not get our ideal proposal backdrop, I said yes, and we have a funny story to tell.
Her favorite moment: During the wedding ceremony homily, Pastor Wade Griffith asked Paul and me to turn around and see everyone who was there to support us, pray for us and celebrate with us on our wedding day. It was truly humbling and encouraging to see hundreds of our closest friends and family from all stages of our lives there. His favorite moment: When I saw Brittany for our “first look.” I could not believe someone so beautiful had chosen to spend forever with me. At the reception, Brittany and I “called the dawgs” immediately after the band played “Sweet Home Alabama.” We couldn’t let anyone forget our allegiance to the dawgs and UGA.
