Courtney Hub and Scott Saunders
March 11, 2011
Where did you meet?
We met at the office. He was working in Atlanta, GA at the time, and I was in Raleigh, NC. We were co-workers first, then friends, and ultimately something much more.
How did he propose?
He tied the ring around our French Bulldog, Gizmo's, neck. I was getting ready to go out to dinner, and stopped for a moment to pet the dog, and there it was. I started crying, it scared the dog and he ran under the bed...with the ring. We were both on our hands and knees trying to get him out, and once we did, I stood up and Scott stayed on his knee and asked me to marry him.
When is your wedding date?
October 1, 2011
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
Scott and I have spent a lot of time in Savannah, and fell in love with the city. We visited The Mansion on Forsyth Park three years ago and thought it would be a wonderful place for a wedding. When we got engaged, it was first location that came to mind. The venue was not available when we first inquired, but when we visited the property there had been a cancellation for October 1! We chose Chatham Square for the ceremony because of it's beauty, quiet quaintness, and proximity to our reception venue.
Where do you reside now?
Roswell, GA. We purchased our home from the architect that developed our neighborhood, and who, coincidentally enough was one of the architects that designed the Mansion on Forsyth Park!
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your
Scott and I both come from large families, and thus will have three little ones -- two flower girls and a ring bearer -- in the wedding. Needless to say, Gizmo our French Bulldog will also be walking down the aisle and standing up next to Scott on our big day.
Anything else you would like to add?
Wedding planning has been a breeze...everything from the stroke of luck with the venue availability, to finding our first choice and perfect vendors with only six months to plan, to the link between our home and reception location....it's all feeling very, truly, meant to be.
We love the proposal story!!! Here is to you and Scott and your wedding day. We cannot wait to help you make it all that more special. –The MG Events Team
