Emily and Ethan are two of the sweetest! Their wedding day took place at 550 Trackside and I loved how family oriented their day was. Most of the guests and much of the bridal party were family members. Emily and Ethan have been together since high school and I love that I got to be there with them as they began this new phase of their relationship.
One of my favorite moments of the reception was when Emily danced with her grandfather and then her cousin cut in. Each of the granddaughters proceeded to cut in until the song ended and they'd all gotten to dance with grandpa. I was trying so hard not to cry so that I could actually see the photos I was taking.
Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Howeth!

How/ Where did you two meet?
We met in the youth group at Newton Baptist Church when we were both young teenagers. We are blessed to be able to say we are high school sweethearts!
How did he propose?
Ethan put a lot of time into planning the perfect night that I will never forget! Every October my grandparents host a hayride and bonfire for the youth at our church and every year Ethan and I go to help. Ethan was helping with the "haunted" part of the hayride and I was riding in the truck with some of my family. Before going back to the house my grandaddy turned down a dirt road. Off in the distance it looked like some people were standing on the road but I could not see what they were doing. As we got closer, one by one they began to flip signs that read "Emily", "Will You", and "Marry". When we got to the end Ethan was standing off to the side. When I got out of the truck he dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! I was the perfect night!
