Wedding Wednesday: Wil and Sadie

Wil and Sadie met at a High Point Young Professionals networking event in October of 2011. At the time Wil was working for the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival and Sadie was a professor at High Point University. They were both new to town and each decided to attend that evening with friends. Towards the end of the night Wil came over to the table Sadie was sitting at to introduce himself and asked her to attend a show with him in Winston-Salem. Sadie took him up on his offer and the couple has been together ever since!

Wil’s proposal came as quite a surprise. The couple was preparing to travel to Monteagle, Tennessee to spend the Christmas holiday with Wil’s family when at the last minute he insisted that they make one last stop in Greensboro before hitting the road. Oddly, Wil ended up driving them to the airport and out on the tarmac to a private jet. As a Christmas surprise he had arranged for them to fly to Tennessee! Once in the air the pilot closed the door between them and before Sadie realized what was happening Wil was down on one knee to propose. They spent the rest of the flight celebrating with champagne and planning for their upcoming wedding! His family was in on the secret and greeted the couple as they arrived in Monteagle with Sadie’s ring.

Wil and Sadie were married on August 3rd, 2013 at the High Point Country Club in High Point, NC. It was a beautiful evening ceremony honoring both of their faiths, drawing from both Jewish and Christian traditions. They were married under a beautiful floral chuppa that was later placed over the cake table. 

The theme for their celebration centered around a traditional, sophisticated, and elegant feel. Both the ceremony and reception room were decorated with deep purple flowers, crisp white linens, and gold chiavari chairs. They danced the night away to a wonderful 12-piece band playing Motown and Beach music. They had a beautiful four-tier wedding cake of Birthday Cake and My Favorite Pound (light lemon). The cake was decorated with buttercream prints of paisley, dots, soft shell lines, and lovely scrollwork. Accented with deep purple flowers and topped with an elegant monogram.

Sadie joked that she knew they would be having a Maxie B’s wedding cake before she even knew where they would get married! She called the shop a week after their engagement to book the date and place a deposit. Oh boy, were we flattered! It was such an honor to be a part of such a special day in Wil and Sadie’s life.
