In 2014, Taylor and Clayton’s love story unfolded in the unlikeliest of places ⁠— the gym. Mutual friends paved the way for conversation that sparked a connection. After an injury, Taylor stopped going to the gym, and the couple didn’t cross paths until two years later when Taylor serendipitously ran into Clayton at a local country club. With his fondness for two-stepping, Clayton invited Taylor to dance, igniting a spark that would keep them dancing together ever since. Two weeks later, Clayton mustered the courage to ask Taylor to be his girlfriend while dancing. Just two months later, while sharing another dance, Clayton revealed his feelings and told her he loved her, marking the pivotal moments in their love story.

Having been together since 2016, Taylor, a meticulous planner, anticipated a proposal. Clayton, however, orchestrated a sweet surprise that left Taylor genuinely unsuspecting. Under the guise of attending her best friend’s bridesmaid’s dinner, Taylor arrived at a restaurant only to be greeted by a courtyard adorned with rose petals and a kneeling Clayton, ready to sweep her off her feet.

When selecting their wedding date, the couple had yet to learn that it would align with the wedding anniversary of both sets of great-grandparents. The bride says, “I posted it to Facebook saying how excited we were to have chosen a date, and my grandmother commented that her parents were married April 9th, and then Clay’s grandmother commented later also saying her parents were married April 9th, too!”

In 2022, Taylor and Clayton wed in a charming, rustic French blue wedding surrounded by aged oak trees. Amy Maddox Photography expertly captured the couple’s alfresco ceremony and romantic vows.

The vintage reception space adorned in shades of blue, blush and gold and antique accents set the stage for an enchanting celebration. As the night continued, Taylor and Clayton danced and reveled with loved ones before embarking on a tropical honeymoon to Hawaii.
