Storybook Endings: Real Fairytale Endings for Our Storybook Brides

Hey, Storybook friends and fam! It’s been a little bit, but we’re finally back today with another blog featuring our very own Storybook bride, Samantha! 

Samantha and Zach’s sweet journey to “I do” began just as friends—which we know is every guy’s worst nightmare! Throughout their friendship, Zach frequently made comments about marrying Samantha, but she always dismissed the thought as a harmless joke. After finally taking the step to start dating, Zach decided to turn his jokes into reality within a few short months. One evening, after a typical day of shopping and church, Samantha came home to what she thought would be a quiet night. Instead, Zach quickly beckoned her upstairs and read her a sweet love letter before getting down on one knee to propose. The moment was intimate and beautiful—one they will treasure forever. 

When the time came to start searching for the perfect wedding dress, Samantha visited Storybook Ending with her mother and two best friends. She chose to visit Storybook at the recommendation of her friends, and she came into her appointment convinced that she wanted a curve-hugging, lace dress and nothing too grand (or poofy!). As we all know, sometimes what you think you don’t want turns out to be exactly what you need… With a little persuasion from her friend, Becca, Samantha tried on a dress that she initially passed over because it definitely did not match her description of the “ideal dress.” Despite her initial reservations about its “poofiness,” the dress captured her heart. She was drawn to the intricate lace and stunning details, and with joyful tears she said a resounding “YES!” to the dress. Throughout her appointment, her incredible consultant Christi’s positive energy and welcoming vibe made Samantha feel at ease and comfortable.  

On May 11, 2024, Samantha and Zach enjoyed the most beautiful, intimate wedding day with their closest family and friends surrounding them. Their wedding ceremony was at the Eagle Point Castle in Clinton, followed by a small reception at The Great Revivalist Brewery. Their day was nothing short of perfection, marked by shared happiness and a palpable sense of love from those around them.  

Samantha and Zach’s story is a beautiful reminder that sometimes, the best things in life are the surprises that come along when you least expect them. Samantha, thank you for allowing Storybook to play a small part in making your wedding day memorable. We wish you and Zach many amazing years of marriage!
