REAL TWIRL WEDDING || RUTH ANN & LOGAN

Welcome to another feature of real Twirl weddings, friends! We know you’ll be in love with this couple and their special day just as much as we are. With their ceremony venue being the beautiful Central Christian Church followed by a beautiful reception held at the Fasig-Tipton, this day was nothing short of breathtaking. Thank you to Ruth Ann and Logan for letting us highlight their big day! Enjoy! xoxo

Can you give us a glimpse into you & your hubs's love story?

My husband (Logan) and I were both very involved in an agricultural youth leadership organization (National FFA Organization) throughout high school and into college and that organization would eventually be how we met. Each year, that organization chooses 6 college freshmen/sophomores to represent them as keynote speakers and workshop facilitators and requires them to take a year off school. In 2014, I was representing Kentucky as the candidate for this position and Logan was representing South Carolina (where he is from) as their candidate. We first met at a practice interview in Texas and immediately hit it off! It's safe to say I was absolutely smitten! The beginning of our relationship was so pure and perfect (one of those too good to be true type of things) and we got to know each other over Skype calls as we practiced for the interviews coming up for the FFA positions. Eventually, I was chosen as one of the six positions which forced me to take a year off school and travel the country for the coming year. We were nervous to start our dating relationship as long distance, but we made it work! Logan would eventually transfer from Clemson to UK where we both graduated and entered teaching careers. As a senior at UK, just months before graduation, Logan took me for a date at McConnel Springs where my high school friend (and my favorite photographer-Lyndsey Boyd) was hiding in the bushes as Logan popped the question! The rest, as they say, is history!

What was it about your dress that made you realize it was "the one?" Was it what you expected to love/wear? Favorite memory from dress shopping/Twirl?

I knew my dress was "the one" when my Mom looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, "this one is so you". The whole appointment was perfect. I had my best girls, my grandmother and my mother and the Twirl girl helping us was one of my sweet sorority sisters (Jillian). This appointment made me realize that I wanted our entire wedding to have this feeling. The feeling of "this is so Ruth Ann and Logan" and that's why we chose to use vendors we had a previous connection with. It was the best decision!

What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?

It's so hard to choose just one favorite memory, so I'll share my top 3!

1. Nothing was sweeter than pronouncing our written vows to each other in front of the people who mean the most to us. It was hard and vulnerable, but wow was it worth it. Our vows weren't just pleasant words for the ceremony- they truly are how we live. (The original handwritten vows are on our fridge haha!)

2. While I was getting ready with my bridesmaids, my mom walked in with a box for me to open in front of everyone (she strategically did this before make-up because there were tears!) and inside the box was a Bride's Bible with my married name and a stack of letters that each of my bridesmaids, my mother and my grandmother had written and prayed over. It was so special. 

3. With every good wedding, there are hilarious unexpected things that happen! One of the groomsmen was heisting Logan into the air for a silly picture and his pants ripped right down the butt. Given, this was after the ceremony and before the reception!

What has been the best thing about marriage so far?

There have been so many great things about marriage, but my favorite thing is having this clean slate to live out a life together that God created for us. There have been tough decisions and really hard days at work, but coming home to this incredible man that can soothe my worries and make me feel so secure in those tough times is the best feeling. It's said a lot, but doing life with your best friend is so fun.

Any pieces of wisdom or advice you'd like to share with future brides, engaged gals, or newlyweds like yourself?

Advice to future brides- Take time to enjoy the engagement before you start to plan. We were engaged for 5 months and spent the first week just giddy and did zero planing. It was amazing.

Advice to engaged gals- Use people who care about you. Every vendor we used was someone we had a connection with prior to even meeting each other. From sorority sisters, to high school friends, to the horse farm my Mom worked at in college... it all was part of our story and it created a day full of love! 

Advice to newlyweds- Seek advice. Man, we do not have everything figured out, but I like to think the community of people around us can help with that. Logan and I both still call on our family for help with big and small life decisions when we feel like we are in uncharted territory. Community is huge.
