Spoons full of love:
A sayles Wedding Reception
We were married in a beautiful courtyard in Asheville, North Carolina on July 4, 2017, but we didn’t have the chance to celebrate with you like we wanted. Join us on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 4 p.m. in Atlanta, Georgia for a casual BBQ potluck-style wedding reception and celebration of our love.
Since this event is being hosted at Leah's childhood home (a personal residence), please note that parking is extremely limited. If possible, we recommend carpooling, utilizing Atlanta's MARTA Transit System, or using Uber/Lyft to attend this wedding reception.
Food brings family closer together...
...and you are our family! For this casual, barbecue potluck-style wedding reception, we ask that you bring a favorite dish to share with our new family in lieu of a gift. If for any reason you are unable to attend, coming from out of town and unable to cook, or simply still want to gift us with a useful item for our new life together, you are welcome to take a look at our wedding registries on Amazon and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
Couples that skate together, stay together.
They met at a skating rink in Athens, Georgia, where Leah was attending college and Alan lived with his family. He asked her to guess his age, and she guessed right (by adding two years to her estimate, to be nice).
He found her on Facebook and commented on a photo of her with paint on her cheek. He asked if she would teach him how to draw with charcoal. She knew what he was doing, and went along with it. She thought it would end there, but after their first "date" (which she still doesn't call a date), they spent the entire day together.
The catch? He was signing up for the Marines and would be leaving in five months time. They decided to make the best of it, not knowing wether they would see each other again. Five months passed, and she saw him off for his three months of basic training. This meant no phones, no computers, just old-fashioned pen and paper. She waited three weeks, checking the mail every day, for a letter from him. And with that first letter, where he said he didn't want this to end, they became each other's forever. The rest, was history.
We can't wait to celebrate with you!
