The Autumn wedding celebration of Samantha & Aric at Granite Ridge Estate & Barn.


How did you two meet? 
We met online! Sam messaged Aric first and he was the first (and only) guy she met in person.  

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did? 
Have you seen it? It’s so gorgeous! And we loved the on-site estate and privacy to enjoy the entire weekend.

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
Aric’s card to me was so beautiful! We somehow didn’t miss any steps of our first dance and that was a surprise!

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
Our first look and our first time in the reception barn.  It was so great to have a few private moments together before the ceremony and before the party kicked off to really soak up the moment.

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?! 
Go on our honeymoon to New Zealand! Plus we’re hosting Friendsgiving and Christmas this year so that will keep us busy.
