Sunflower Chic Real Wedding by Nathan Abplanalp Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This love story is so. sweet.  My heart is literally melting.  Amber and John met in high school, eight years before they started dating.  They socialized in the same circles, attended church and several mission trips together, but it wasn’t until Amber’s last year of college until they had both developed strong feelings for one another.  They are both deeply devoted to their faith and currently work together doing campus ministry at the University of West Georgia.  The part that really made me melt:  As the unity portion of the ceremony, Amber and John washed one another’s feet as a vow to serve one another before themselves for the rest of their lives. The day was bright and cheerful, full of happy sunflowers and sweet sweet love.  A big thanks to  Nathan Abplanalp Photography for sharing with us!


Amber wore a beauty of a gown by Anjolique (that lace is super unique- love)! Her bridal party complemented in black lace frocks by ModCloth and carried bold sunflower bouquets.  It was sunny and warm in North Carolina; perfect weather for a summertime ceremony at The Arbors.   

Amber and John were engaged almost a year before the wedding.  It was the day before they moved to Georgia together to pursue their work in the campus ministry, and John kept texting and calling Amber asking if he could see her before they made the big move.  Amber was busy getting back from a rafting trip and had a lot to prepare for the following day, so she told him that she wasn’t sure if she had the time.  When she pulled into her parent’s driveway, she was stopped by something in the way.  Slightly irritated, she got out of her car and found a Coke bottle with a rose tied to a Bible verse.  She drove up a little further (the driveway is a quarter mile long) and she found another… and another… and another… all the way up.  Amber came across a final rose and a Bible on the porch, when John came out and proposed! 

A rustic-chic reception followed in the Pavillion at The Arbors.  Amber and John were sent off into their lives together with bubbles and love… happiest wishes to the newlyweds!
