3 0 S p r i n g | S u m m e r B R I D E Ages: She's 31; he's 26. Occupations: She's a pharmacist; he's a student/pharmacy technician. How they met: At school in Atlanta. Engagement story: "We went to the Atlanta Botanical Garden one day and were in front of a goddess waterfall sculpture when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I don't even know if he got the question out before I said, 'Yes!'" Number of wedding guests: 175 Ceremony: Sojourn Community Church, Midtown. Reception: The Olmsted. Wedding theme: "Purple Reign." Entertainment: Complete Weddings + Events (DJ, photobooth, videography). Personal touches: "We made sure to incorporate both American and Indian traditions," Emily says. "For the ceremony we wore American traditional garb, but at the reception we switched to our Indian garb. During the ceremony, in lieu of a unity candle we did the tying of the thali. When we had our first kiss as husband and wife we (did it to) the sound from when Mario gets the princess. We also bought a lot of things to make the spaces our own, like glassware for the bridal party table. We had a table with crafts and coloring books mainly for kids, but I think some adults enjoyed them too." First-dance song: "So This Is Love," from Cinderella, sung by Tessa Violet and Jon Cozart. The day in three words: "Hectic, beautiful, finally." Favorite part of the day: "The ceremony. We finally got to make official what we had felt and known all along." Really glad you: "Got a veil. I kept changing my mind on whether or not I wanted one. I decided two weeks before the wedding to get one I saw on Etsy. It barely made it here in time, but I was so happy it did." Wish you would have: "Like any typical wedding day, it had its setbacks. We wish we had made more time for us and our parents." Advice: "This was advice given to me, and we wish we would have followed it more, especially if you are having a large wedding: Take time for yourselves. Away from everyone. Just be. We had those precious few minutes while the photographers were setting people up outside the church with bubbles for our exit. We wish we would have had more 'us' time." emily harper lucas mathew & PURPLE REIGN 8.27.2016
