Lion's Gate Manor Wedding | Laura + John

Jun 18, 2018 -- Posted by : famzing

Lions Gate Manor is one the most beautiful venues Spartanburg has to offer, and it was an honor to capture all the great details there. #teamfamzing started the day taking photos of Laura's dress from The Castle bridal.

We got some very handsome photographs of John as he got ready for the big moment. He was feeling thrilled and was so excited to see Laura!

How They Met:

We met at R.A. training at Winthrop University during our sopohmore year of college.

The Proposal:

On Saturday, February 11th, we went to dinner near Winthrop's campus. Afterwards we went over to campus to sit on the swings and reminiscence, which is something I ask to do all the time. John mentioned one of his friends said we could come hang out on the roof-top with him; we headed over to the dorm we used to work in and walked up to the top floor. One of the rooms had a sign on it that said "reserved". When John opened the door he had some chairs and a projector set-up. We sat down and watched a video slideshow of pictures of us from the first 6 years we were together. Then John walked me up to the rooftop and proposed! I was totally surprised because I had no idea when we went to Winthrop that John was going to propose; when we arrived back at home I was surprised again when our best friends were there to greet us and celebrate with us. The next day our parents and more family came to celebrate. It was definitely a celebratory weekend!

The big moment arrived, and we loved the look on John's face when he saw Laura for the first time. 

The Lion's Gate Manor wedding ceremony was perfect. 

Our night continued with The Party Machine introducing the new Mr & Mrs. From the first dance to the last, they kept everyone entertained.

To top off the night, the food from Holmes Catering was amaZing and the guests could not stop talking about it!. The Cake provided by Jessica Kicklighter was not only elegant, but was delicious.

Our night came to a close with photographing them leaving with cheers from friends and family! Special thanks to the vendors that made the day a huge success!
