It was moments before their ceremony began that Sarah and Andrew sat excitedly in the bridal suite of Chevy Chase Country Club. Handing gifts to each other, Sarah smiled as she unwrapped a bible Andew had specially chosen for. When Andrew opened his card, a smile came across his face and he told me the piece of paper was the printed version of the messages exchanged between the two of them when they first started dating via Match.com.
Andrew’s first message asked Sarah what her favorite episode of ‘Friends’ was. That one question sparked a conversation that turned into a date, that turned into an engagement, and eventually to this day a wedding.
Becoming engaged a month before the pandemic – planning a wedding was no easy task for these two. When we spoke with them in the spring of last year, we were SURE life would be back to normal within a year. As March 2021 rolled around, we soon came to realize it was still not going to be a “normal” wedding. No huge guest lists and no dance floor. These two realize sharing their special day with their closest family and friends was what mattered the most.
Congratulations Sarah & Andrew, we are so excited to share a little piece of your beautiful celebration.
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Sarah & Andrew’s day beautiful.
