"As a student, I worked in the Handicraft Department as a weaver," says Alicia. "My supervisor and mentor, Jennifer LeCroy, helped me with every detail of our wedding. She became something of an informal wedding coordinator." Regarding Alicia's desires for a "timeless with a modern edge" theme, Jennifer and the couple created retro-style invitation ...

It was very hot the day of the wedding, at least 90 degrees. The church was not air conditioned, so the couple did everything possible to make their guests comfortable. Each individual was greeted with bottled water and a white folding fan.

As guests were seated, a harpist played and a friend from college sang "Ave Maria" as the attendants entered the church through large wooden doors. The Catholic ceremony was short, about 25 minutes. The only light that filled the church that night came from candles set before the stained glass windows that enhanced the warm colors of the chapel.

The newlyweds rode in a 1931 maroon Pierce-Arrow to Magretta Hall downtown where the reception was held. When the guests arrived, the band was playing contemporary jazz. Generational pictures of married couples from each family and childhood pictures of the bride and groom added an antique element of decoration. On the tables, a small green and pin ...

While there were plenty of toasts to the bride and groom, there was also a special one saved for Alicia's father in honor of his birthday. A cake table displayed not one, but seven different flavored cakes, including a carrot cake for the father of the bride.

The newlyweds navigated through a sea of sparklers while exiting their reception. "We went back to the cabins and waited for our friends to come over for an after-party," says Alicia.

Alicia & Scott in Rome, GA

Their engagement was short -- four months and all about business. They didn't need to think for more than a heartbeat about where the wedding would take place: Frost Chapel at Berry College. THE BRIDE Alicia Kirsten Cosnahan, a 23-year-old artist THE GROOM Scott David McIntosh, a 24-year-old graduate student of history THE DATE July 28 College sweethearts Alicia Kirsten Cosnahan and Scott David McIntosh were married on July 28th at the place where they met five years earlier when Scott was a sophomore and Alicia was a freshman. "I had seen a piece of artwork Alicia had displayed on campus that I liked very much," says Scott, who worked part-time at the college library. When Alicia came in to check out a book, Scott searched her file for her phone number and called. "It was probably illegal, but I did it anyway. I called her and asked her to coffee, and she told me she had a paper to write, but she had time to go on a walk." They went for a romantic stroll up to some gothic-looking buildings that Henry Ford had donated to the college in the 1920s and '30s. "We ended up talking for most of the night. I think she ended up failing that paper," says Scott jokingly. Years later, he took Alicia out on that very same walk, having earlier placed a present underneath the bench where they sat and talked that one fateful night. Tucked inside the package was the ring.
