Tell us about your romantic proposal!

After dating for eight years, Lance planned a to surprise me with a horseback ride onthe beach in Charleston. I thought the surprise was getting to ride the horses! When we jumped off the horses to take pictures, he proposed on the beach! That was definitely the most memorable horse ride I’ll ever have!

How did you decide on a wedding venue?

We are obviously horse people, so Fasig-Tipton was at the top of our list when we started looking at venues. The beautiful grounds and buildings were the perfect equine setting. It seemed the most appropriate place to combine our love of horses with our love for each other. After we toured the grounds, we left with a feeling that there was the place where we were meant say I do!

What elements were most important to you for your wedding?

When it came to our wedding day, it was important for us to be true to ourselves and make sure the day represented us as a couple. We wanted our guests to feel important and to make sure everyone had a good time!
