After meeting at a church conference via mutual friends, Roger and Victoria really got to know one another when they connected over Facebook. Their first date was a group outing to bowling and dinner to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and as Victoria got to know Roger, she realized that “he is truly a fine gentleman.”

Four years later, Victoria and Roger were headed out to celebrate her passing her CPA exam. Little did she know that Roger had coordinated with family and friends from out-of -town to show up for the occasion. As the celebration was winding down, Roger stood up in front of their loved ones and asked her to marry him.

For their wedding, Victoria walked down the aisle for their church ceremony flanked by her mother and sister. Afterwards, their celebration at Foxchase Manor was filled with purple and gold and gorgeous floral arrangements. A sweetheart table with a circular floral arrangement behind it made for a stand-out decor detail, as did their six-tiered cake.
