Mr. & Mrs. Malott

 

Grant and Sara starting dating during their junior year of high school. The two had lockers right next to each other throughout high school, but it wasn’t until their junior year that they decided to finally talk. One day in homeroom a few classmates were talking about who they were going to give a school sponsored Valentine's "Crush Can" to. Sara did not think she was going to get one from anyone until Grant confidently said, "Don't worry, I will get you one." A few days later Sara got a "Crush Can" with a message that read, "Sara, will you be my Valentine?" with no name attached. She worked up the courage to ask Grant after school if it was from him and she told him, "I'll be your Valentine if you'll be mine." …and that is when their love story began.

Grant asked Sara to marry him on a family vacation in Orlando, Florida. Grant had been carrying the ring around the entire vacation, waiting for the right moment to ask Sara to be his wife. On New Years Eve, there was a party outside their condo. When the ball dropped and fireworks of celebration began to go off all around them, Grant proposed to Sara.

Sara’s wedding dress was covered in detailed intricate lace. Her cathedral style veil flowed in grace with each step she took. Grant looked very dapper in his dark gray suite and burgundy vest. Surrounded by loved ones, Sara and Grant were married at Four Square Gospel Church in New Castle, Indiana. After the ceremony the newly weds rode to their reception was held at the Henry County Arts Park also in New Castle, Indiana, in Sara’s grandfathers red classic sports car, making a grand entrance.

At the reception deep hues of burgundy and green decorated the Arts Park pavilion, and twinkle lights were strung across the rafters glistening in the night. Grant’s passion for Spiderman was snuck into the decor with a very cute spiderman themed cake topper. After toasts by the maid of honor and best man, Sara and Grant danced the night away as the newlywed Mr. & Mrs. Malott.
