How We Met: I (Jamie) had been through a string of bad online dates and was considering giving up on the whole scene. I had made a New Year’s Resolution to not participate in any online dates, but decided to go on last date. It was a date I will remember forever.

Favorite Moment: The first look was the best part of the wedding day. I turned around and my eyes were watering from those “damn allergies.” Eden looked so stunning, so amazing, and it hit me that this was the moment, this was the time and this was the woman. All of the planning, the laughs, the arguments and the cake tastings led to this one moment that I knew we would both cherish for the rest of our lives. That image of her is burned into my memory forever.

Favorite Detail: Eden was adamant on this classic Southern tradition burying a bottle of bourbon in the earth one month prior to the wedding for good weather. The irony of the situation is that to ensure good weather, we buried the bottle of Basil Hayden during the nastiest, muddiest, rainy day of the summer with only the assistance of a stick, a rain boot, bare hands and Eden’s tenacity to accomplish the mission. The mission was accomplished and the wedding day was perfect with gorgeous weather. The dirty bottle of bourbon was pretty damn good as well as Eden and I enjoyed it with our entire wedding party.
