It’s been a while since we have shared a beautiful wedding on our blog, and what better time to appreciate love persevering than during the crazy year of 2020? We’re going to throw it back to May 30th, 2020, to share in the joy of Emily & Drew Cochran!
Emily and Drew have known each other for years, and lived right down the road from one another in high school. However, it wasn’t until 3 years after graduating that they found themselves talking and eventually dating.
According to Emily, she had no idea that Drew had a crush on her all throughout high school!
That crush turned into them dating in 2016, taking vacations as far as Cancun and Puerto Rico, going ice skating and to football games for the first time, and finally getting engaged in 2019!
“We have many more memories, but the best memory for us happened January 5th, 2019. We just bought our first house and had a house warming party, surrounded by loved ones, when Drew proposed and I said yes!” -Emily
They spent a year and a half planning their wedding, and even considered changing their date between March and May when COVID began to bring stress and uncertainty to many brides. Luckily they were able to keep it the same, and Emily described it as “a beautiful, perfect day”.
Judging by the photos, we would agree!
We asked Emily if there is any advice she would like to pass on to future brides, and she told us three things: It’s never too early to start planning, never turn down help, and try to spend more on the honeymoon than the wedding!
Though we are a few months late, we want to give a big congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Cochran from all of us at Jessica’s On Main! The only thing that makes us happier than the look on a brides face when she says yes to the dress, is getting to see the photos filled with love and excitement that follow.
We hope every year of marriage treats you both with twice as much fun and adventure as you have enjoyed in the past.
