M r. & M R S. Manley!
After nine years of knowing one another, these two were very excited to tie the knot! They spent 11 months planning their big day after Larry asked Gloria the big question at Oconee Brew Co. in Greensboro, GA!
How did he ask? “It was a long time coming, and my husband had the ring for quite some time, but he wanted me to be surprised so he did it when I was totally not expecting it. He asked to go to dinner at this fancy restaurant and by the time we were suppose to be getting ready to go I was not feeling getting all dolled up (of course) so I decided to switch things up and asked if we could just go grab some beers at the local brewery and have a more chill night. He was annoyed but of course gave in and invited his cousin and her husband to come along for company. We had a couple drinks and then his cousin wanted to take a picture so when it was our turn for a picture he got down on one knee and I was totally shocked!”
Gloria and Larry went with Champagne, black, white and greenery for their wedding colors!
When asked what her favorite part of the day was, Gloria shared: “Since I am from MN and he is from GA the best part was having all of our favorite people together for a long weekend in my favorite place in the world. It was magical.”
Did you do bridesmaid gifts or groomsmen gifts? If so what & where from: “Yes groomsmen gifts from Etsy were personalized lighters. Bridesmaids gifts were earrings and getting ready outfits from Etsy!”
She walked down the isle to Feels like home to me by Chantal Kreviazuk! They shared their first dance to the song You Make it Easy by Jason Aldean!
Number one tip she wanted to share when asked was- “Organization!! and dont sweat the small stuff, things will not always go as planned and no one will notice besides you anyway!”
“Funniest moment of the day was probably watching everyone taking a shotski and their reactions!”
They didnt do a big formal send off because everyone was staying at the resort, but they did do a sparkler line that they ran through! I love those!!
After they took a honeymoon to Punta de Mita, Nayarit, Mexico!
