Ellie and Zach first met Fort Lauderdale (not at spring break though), Ellie was doing an Internship and Zach was living there. At a bar with mutual friends they met for the first time. Ellie though Zach was tall and handsome, Zach thought Ellie was a really great dancer, and they immediately hit it off. Spending time with these two you can tell that they don’t take life too seriously. They are quick to laugh and have a passion for living life to it’s fullest. In fact they love to take adventures together, I suppose having someone who shares the same zeal for the new and unknown makes the journey that much better. Zach proposed on Sunset Beach at Ellie’s family reunion. He snuck her away while everyone was eating and poured his heart out to her before getting down on one knee. When they came back to dinner and announced their engagement, the whole family welcomed Zach into their arms! I loved everything about this wedding, from the old world luxury feel of The John Marshall Ballrooms, the black tie tuxedos, the jewel tones of the purple dresses and the gold accents, and of course the most happy easy going couple. Congratulations again Ellie & Zach, we’re over the moon for you two!
