College “love birds” Faith and George met in 2008 at Claflin University where their love story first took flight. It wouldn’t be long before George knew there would be no other person for him and surprised Faith with a sweet proposal before family and friends, asking her to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. Their fairytale “Winter Wonderland” themed wedding was beautifully planned and designed, with frost blue and snow white color themes – and just the right touch of pink. The bride looked like a princess in her long sleeve gown with floral patterned lace applique and pearls. Her fondest memory is the snow falling during the first dance – creating a truly enchanting moment.
