Joyful Savannah Engagement

Today’s precious couple met in pharmacy school at Mercer University, fell in love after nurturing a sincere friendship and never looked back! And we are so happy they did! You can feel Ivy and Chris' love for one another pop right off the images beautifully Wendy at Apt. B. Photography captured. Read more about their adorable engagement story below.


Tell us about the proposal! 
Our engagement took place on October 24, 2015 (Chris's 30th birthday!). We had plans for a while to go to Atlanta for the Georgia Tech vs Florida State football game that day for a fun rivalry game. (Chris is a Tech alumni and I grew up outside of Tallahassee!) A couple of months before the game, Chris's mom got in touch with me saying that she and his dad were planning to come to Atlanta and surprise Chris for his birthday. We planned to do lunch before the game, so I also invited some of our friends and pharmacy school classmates to surprise him as well. Little did I know that I would end up being the one getting a surprise! Turns out, Chris had told everyone what his plans were and proposed while at lunch surrounded by our friends and family!

What are you most excited about as newlyweds?
We plan to get married at the Morris Center in April 2017 and are most excited about sampling different cakes and deserts. (We're total foodies!)  As newlyweds we're looking forward to making more memories and visiting new places.  And because I usually put everything in my name, I think Chris is looking forward to no longer being referred to as Mr. Simmons at the vet, restaurants and hotels!
