Happy Monday, friends! Today I want to introduce you to Katherine. She and Brandon are getting married in September at Greenbrier Farms in Easley, SC. She has such a kind spirit, and I am so looking forward to their beautiful wedding!
How did you and Brandon meet? How long have you known each other? We met in nursing school through our mutual friend, Heather. We had several classes together but never actually met until Heather and I were in a group project together. We ended up hitting it off, and the rest is history, all thanks to our friend Heather!
Where do guys like to go on your dates? We both like trying new restaurants, going out on our boat on the lake and playing with our French Bulldog, Lucy.
What is your favorite restaurant or type of food? Sushi
Complete this sentence: We go together like _______. peanut butter and jelly
When did you know he was “the one”? Did he know before you knew? We took a trip to Gulf Shores which is where a lot of Brandon’s family is from, and ironically I used to vacation there with my family growing up. We rented a small house and took our dogs and spent time with Brandon’s family going to the beach, going out to eat and going to bars at night. It was honestly such a fun trip; I think it made us both realize that our relationship was special.
How did he propose? Were you surprised? Brandon proposed to me on his birthday by saying that there would only be one thing that would make his birthday better this year. I was very surprised because we had talked about getting engaged, and we had several big trips coming up that I thought he would propose on. When I told Brandon this, he said that he just couldn’t wait, and he wanted to make it more special and intimate.
When and where are you two getting married? What made you decide to get married here? We are getting married at Greenbrier Farms in Easley, SC in September. We both liked the idea of an outside wedding in the fall, and the farm was a perfect choice.

How would you describe the style of your wedding? The style I would say is going to be rustic chic. Our ceremony is going to be outside under the big oak tree with the reception being inside the barn. I want our guests to have fun so we have a great DJ, amazing food, a photo booth, and open bar. My bridesmaids are wearing long dresses that are all a shade of mint green.
What are your top 3 must-haves for your wedding? Beautiful ceremony, great food, the perfect dress
What have you loved most about planning your wedding? I have really just loved everything so far. I used to dream of what my wedding would be like when I was younger, so it has been really amazing to actually go through this process with my dream man.
Are you guys going on a honeymoon? Where? Why did you choose this location? What are you going to do? We are going to Mexico for our honeymoon, and I am so excited. I left the honeymoon up to Brandon, and I just told him I wanted to go lay on a beach somewhere warm and drink cocktails.
What are you most excited about in your marriage? I am most excited about doing the small everyday things together, growing old together, and being with my best friend.
If you could give any future bride one piece of advice, what would you tell her? Just to soak up every moment of your engagement, it goes by so fast!
Thanks, Katherine!!! I cannot wait until September!!!
