Josh and Sadie met while attending college at Liberty University. “Josh liked to pick on me every chance he got, and for a while, I avoided him at all costs. However, because we had the same group of friends, we ran into each other often, and slowly Josh’s picking on me became less annoying. In fact, I started to go out of my way to be around him. There was something about his witty, fun-loving personality that kept drawing me to him. We dated for two and a half years before deciding to tie the knot.”
130 guests attended their outdoor ceremony at Holly Hills Country Club, including seven bridesmaids and seven groomsmen.
“Josh comes from a Messianic Jewish background, which holds many symbolic traditions of faith. We were able to celebrate our union by incorporating many of these traditions. Josh’s father also performed our ceremony which was special for us, as he was able to share a meaningful and personal message. Before our ceremony began, the wooden arch we were getting married under, fell down and broke. Thankfully we have wonderful friends who bought us a tent from Lowes to get married under, which they decorated for us as well. Although it wasn’t the picturesque canopy I imagined, it truly was perfect. It was touching to know we had friends who were willing to help us when the unexpected happened.”
The couple chose white, blue, and sage for their wedding decor. “Our wedding was semi-formal and a theme of a mix between elegant and boho. We love the outdoors and wanted to bring some of that in with lots of green eucalyptus, soft lights, and movement in draping fabric. Finding decor for our ceremony and reception was fun and made the wedding I always dreamed of come alive.”
Josh is a medical statement and Sadie is a graduate student. They currently reside in Lynchburg, Virginia.
