What an epically beautiful, perfectly emotional, and simply romantic weekend for Bailey & Andrew’s Tubac Golf Resort wedding! From the personalized details, to the family heirlooms, and to the heartfelt ceremony and toasts, it was a day to remember.
Their proposal story is highlighted in their engagement session, so for their wedding I asked Bailey to tell me about how they first met and when they knew the other was the one:
Bailey: “We met at The University of Alabama! Roll Tide! I was a freshman and Andrew was a junior. I had recently joined a sorority, Phi Mu, and we had a ‘special’ date party called The Carnation Ball that was taking place that October. This event only comes around once in your four years at school. As a northerner at Alabama, I did not have any close guy friends that I could ask to this ball that was taking place my second month of college. My sorority sister asked if she could set me up and I said of course! The set up just so happened to be Andrew.
Andrew was a Beta. I remember texting him asking if he’d like to come to The Carnation Ball and him saying of course. All of the girls sent their dates a bottle of Jack Daniels with a carnation and formal note asking them to pick us up at the freshman dorm called Tutwiler. I got ready in my friends room, dressed in a long red Alice & Olivia gown. To this day one of my favorite outfits! I remember walking down the stairs with my friends and seeing Andrew dressed in his black tux looking extra handsome! We immediately clicked!
We took a bus from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham and entered a venue decorated in hundreds of carnations with Sister Hazel performing. After a few glasses of champagne, we danced all night. Towards the end of the night, we kissed to Sister Hazel playing All For You – it was pretty magical I must say. His best friend said he came home and said, ‘I’m going to marry that girl…’ I knew he was the one when I found out he was a GREAT dancer, when I couldn’t stop laughing when I was with him, when I met his family (they’re the best!), when he got along with my family, when we moved in together and it felt like the absolute best decision. He’s my best friend!”
I’m so happy and excited for you both and your new lives together. Congrats!
