Lani and Brendan said their “I do”s at the Atlanta Country Club last month and everything came together beautifully! The couple said their vows on the driving range and then went inside to dance the night away. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Keegan, for letting me be a part of your big day!
Where did you two meet?
We initially met as freshman during college at Auburn University. We stayed good friends throughout all of college, and did many football games and game weekends away in a big group. However, it wasn't until after Brendan graduated that we started dating long distance (Auburn to Atlanta, then Birmingham to Atlanta). Once I finished nursing school in Birmingham, I moved to Atlanta and we finally ended long distance and were able to move in together!
How did he propose?
We planned an entire labor day weekend/Brendan's birthday trip around a place we could take our two dogs. Brendan's mom had planned to come to Atlanta for his birthday that weekend, so we just decided to make it a family trip and invited her, my mom, and my sister up to Hilton Head Island. The Friday we got there we had already made reservations for dinner but really wanted to take the dogs down to the beach at sunset and let them run around before we left. We walked on to the beach and I was so focused on getting pictures of the dogs running around and getting in the water I was oblivious to what else was happening. He all of the sudden asked me to put my phone down, but I still was trying to get pictures so he had to take it from me! He got down on one knee and that's when I realized what was happening! My mom, sister, and his mom got photos of us and were able to have the rest of the family on FaceTime. We wrapped it up by getting to take beautiful pictures at sunset on the beach with the us, the family, and the dogs :)
What are you looking forward to most about being married?
Continuing to travel together, growing as a couple, strengthening our relationship, and becoming a family.
