Diane & Scott: A Traditional Wedding in Decatur, GA

Puppy love brought Diane and Scott together when her cocker spaniel, Angel, and Scott’s Labrador, Cooper, took a liking to each other in the courtyard at their apartment complex in college. Scott admits he would crack his blinds so that when Diane and her cocker spaniel walked by, his Labrador would bark to go outside. “Cooper never had to twist Scott’s arm, though!” Diane says. The Bride Diane Cooley, 24, art teacher The Groom Scott Boren, 25, lumber sales associate The Date July 8 After dating for three years, Scott proposed to Diane while the two were stargazing -- using a stand-in ring that he had bought at Wal-Mart that day (the custom-made ring he’d ordered hadn’t arrived yet). “Although it was an improvised proposal, it was perfect,” Diane says.
