After her first date with David, Leigh called her sister and told her that she’d just had dinner with the guy she was going to marry.
The Bride Leigh Carpenter, 31, attorney
The Groom David Monteith, 37, corporate trust associate
The Date March 18
Six years later, Leigh was proven right on a weekend getaway. She had just come back from a massage when she found David on the deck of their hotel room with a bottle of champagne. To her delight, David got down on one knee and proposed with a ring that she had tried on months earlier. Though Leigh’s first choice was a wedding in Ireland, the two found the next best thing in Atlanta at the historic Wimbish Mansion. The couple’s love of Ireland also influenced their nuptials and inspired a white, orange, and green color palette.
