Caroline & Zack
Zack and Caroline were a true case of love at first sight! They met right after Caroline finished her sophomore year in college while both working at the same restaurant. All of their coworkers used to laugh because on the first day of working together, Zack said, “I am going to marry that girl one day!” By the end of the summer, they knew they had something special and ended up dating three and a half years long distance.
In August of 2015, the couple was at Hilton Head Island enjoying Zack’s family’s annual vacation spot. After a long day on the beach, Zack pulled Caroline aside and wanted to go look for seashells. Little did Caroline know that this seashell hunt had been staged and she would eventually turn to see him down on one knee, ring in hand, asking her to marry him. She, of course, said YES!
Caroline and Zack planned their ‘romantically simple’ wedding to be held at the beautiful Moore’s Springs Manor, incorporating romantic gold and silver colors with accents of navy. Caroline loves the unique combination of the two metallic colors and navy is one of Zack’s favorite colors.
“My mom, Catherine Gaither, and my wedding decorators, Leigh Cook and Suzanne Blackmon, did a phenomenal job of combining everything I wanted into one stunning day! One of the most unique elements of our wedding was the hanging floral chandelier. Leigh Cook designed the entire thing and it was a huge spotlight for our wedding reception!” shared Caroline.
“Our wedding day was the happiest day of our entire lives! It was such a relaxed day for both of us; Zack even went to the gym that morning! I loved getting ready with all of my girlfriends and seeing all of our closest family and friends gathering for the ceremony. The wedding ceremony was so incredibly special to us both, as not only did the Pastor lead a beautiful service, it also included our parents in it, blessing us with their 63 combined years of marriage!
“Our reception was exactly as I had dreamed it...FUN! During our thank-you to everyone for coming, I asked that everyone get up and dance at least once and they did! It was such a special day that I know we will both never forget.
“The only thing that Zack and I would change would be to make the day last a lifetime! That day is one that we will cherish forever and always,” Caroline concluded.
