From the very moment I met her & her bridesmaids in the gorgeous lobby of the Loews Madison, to the rainy dash inside Fathom Gallery for her first look, she was glowing. And not a wet-with-rain-drops kind of glow, but Sabrina radiated a peaceful, steady glow that remained unruffled throughout the day.
As I've had the privilege to get to know Sabrina through church & David via phone internationally, that same steady calm is seeded deeply in their relationship with other & with the Lord. After a loooong distance relationship & engagement (Virginia -> Ethiopia), our church community, their family & friends jumped for JOY the day we found that David's visa to come to the States had been approved. Onward with finalizing spring wedding plans!!
Their exquisite wedding day celebration began the last Saturday in March with bridesmaids brunch & preparation at Loews Madison followed by a zippy Fiat ride (courtesy of the hotel - major kudos for their handy-dandy rain day provisions!!) over to Fathom Gallery.
Y'all, this venue is incredible - the former-auto- garage-turned-multi-use-event-venue offers stylish white brick walls, chic ghost chairs, expansive windows that flood the upstairs with natural light, a caterer's kitchen with whiteboard cabinet fronts (so neat!) & a beautiful rooftop terrace. And Emily Magee was a joy to work with! If you're looking for a modern/trendy venue in the city for an intimate wedding, check them out!
Sabrina did an AMAZING job of designing & bringing her wedding decor together - from elegant baby's breath, touches of burlap and twinkly lights to gorgeous wall art, mercury votives & beautiful framed quotes, this girl left no details undone. It's only fitting that the actual theme of the wedding matched Sabrina & David's stylish elegance, poise & grace.
Their twinkle-lit ceremony was surrounded by an intimate gathering of closest friends & family members. After a powerful charge about living out the meaning of marriage from our Pastor Nate, David tenderly washed Sabrina's feet as his first act of service to his bride. The night continued on with delicious food & rounds of toasts to the happy couple. Such a wonderful tribute to the love of the Lord shining through them both!
