Audrey Meyer (27 and a pediatric neuropsychologist) met Cody Carson (26 and a clinical psychologist) during graduate school at Marquette University. The couple shared their first kiss when Cody (dressed as Clark Kent) walked Ashley (dressed as a cowgirl) home on Halloween and they quickly began dating. Cody proposed a few months before he and Audrey began their residency for clinical psychology at her parent's lake house at Lake Oconee, Georgia. Because there was no guarantee that they would match in the same state, the couple decided to have a small ceremony in Los Cabos, Mexico followed by a larger celebration four months later back at the lake house. I'm a lucky girl in that I got to wear my wedding dress twice!" says Audrey. With the help of Audrey's mother, the couple planned a sophisticated poolside soiree with a white, blue, and yellow color palette. White tables and chairs were placed around the property along with white lanterns hanging over the pool and in the trees. Audrey and Cody opted not to have a sit-down dinner and instead encouraged everyone to keep the party going by having food stations and bars throughout the house. As a nod to their profession, guests were treated to a koozie with a quote about love Sigmund Freud and psychologist-inspired groom's cake.

"My family's lake house is stunningly beautiful and we have so many happy memories there," says Audrey. "It was an obvious choice for our celebration with friends and family."
