1 8 F a l l | W i n t e r B R I D E JOINED ON ST. JAMES 9.3.2016 Sarah Brewer & omas James "T.J." Sanders. Ages: Sara is 29; T.J. is 34. Occupations: Sara is a social worker and T.J. is a welder. How they met: "We met through mutual friends while I was attending Murray State University in 2007," says Sara. "T.J. is a Murray, Kentucky, native, and I am from Bagdad, Kentucky." Engagement Story: "We made the mutual decision to spend the rest of our lives together — it just seemed right and still does!" Number of Wedding Guests: 45 Ceremony & Reception: St. James Court and the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum. Personal Touches: "I created my own table decorations, which were handmade bouquets of paper flowers," Sara says. "I also made my own bouquet out of brooches. We wrote our own ceremony and vows as well. Additionally, our close friend Ryan Lantrip was able to be our officiant, which made everything seem so much more personal and special. I also bought decorative items with our initials and placed them around the reception area. One of my favorite things, which we splurged on, was our cake topper made up of little peg versions modeled after the groom and myself, and little peg versions of each of our four cats. First Dance Song: "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" by Elton John. The Day in Three Words: "Personal, intimate, joyful." Favorite Part of the Day: "Our vow exchange." One Disagreement: "T.J. did not see the benefit of making our own table decorations (making all those flowers was pretty time-consuming). He changed his mind once he saw them on our wedding day." Really glad you: "I'm so glad we took the time and effort to make everything personal, especially with writing our own ceremony and vows. Also, doing so much on our own allowed us to spend more on our honeymoon at Disney, which was a blast!" Wish you would have: "We really loved how everything turned out. If it were in the budget we would probably have gotten a DJ." Advice: "Just go with the flow. It's not going to go 100 percent perfectly. The most important thing is celebrating your relationship with your partner, with the people you love the most." Wed On Weddings LOCAL
