2 2 S p r i n g / S u m m e r B R I D E 2 0 1 8 Ages: 26 and 27, Occupations: He's in sales and entrepreneurship. She's a sign-language interpreter. How they met: In their high school concert choir. They started dating three years later and had a long-distance relationship for seven years. Engagement story: "Daryl planned a beautiful, surprise dinner for the two of us at Ruth's Chris," Samara says. "After dinner, our waiter presented me with our dessert with 'Will you marry me' written in chocolate on the plate." A hidden photographer captured it all. "It was perfect!" Number of wedding guests: 135. Ceremony and reception: The Pointe. Wedding theme: A touch of elegance. Entertainment: Midnight Magic DJs sent Austin to be the DJ/emcee. "He kept everyone dancing throughout the whole night," Samara says. "Also, I made a photo booth stand made from PVC pipes and a gold sequin backdrop for our guests to take pictures using selfie sticks, props and glow sticks." Personal touches: "I added two photo bouquet charms to my bouquet with pictures of me and my mom. She was supposed to walk me down the aisle but she was called home a month before the wedding." Decor: "I am a DIY bride! The ceremony aisle was lined with ivory, plum and navy rose petals. We used gold wine bottles with plum flowers on a mirror and had plum petals scattered on the tables with candles. Each guest had gold chargers with a little clear jar filled with Starburst as the wedding favor." First-dance song: "At Last," Etta James. The day in three words: "Classy, authentic, fun." Favorite part of the day: "At the end of the night when it was just two of us, looking into each other's eyes and realizing that we are one." Really glad they: Had a day-of coordinator. "Alexis and her team were amazing! They worked so hard to make sure our wedding day was perfect." Wish they would have: "Consumed more fluids during the reception. We were so thirsty at the end of the night from all the dancing." Advice: "Always show appreciation to those who are helping with the wedding — whether it is your wedding party, vendors, guests, etc. Remember they are using their own time and energy to be a part of your big day." Honeymoon: Fort Lauderdale, Florida. SAMARA BOSWELL & DARYL LEWIS JR.
