Wedding spotlight: Jordan and Tori Smith
Jordan and Tori Smith
Oct. 27, 2018
How we met: Jordan and I met through mutual friends my senior year of high school and his freshman year of college. It was most definitely love at first sight! Our first date was to the movies and out to eat. Our most memorable date was going to see the Wrights Christmas lights. That’s the night we can both agree we fell in love. We laughed and joked around all night!
What we love: What I love most about Jordan is his loving and compassionate heart. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He says what he loves most about me is compassion and work ethic. He says I am not a quitter and always strive to do the very best I can.
The proposal: Our proposal was Sept. 22, 2017, at Isbell’s Pumpkin Farm. Jordan had photos of us from over the years and took me out to the deck near the pond and popped the question!
The wedding: We both wanted a fall wedding. That is difficult when you live in the South. Alabama and Auburn’s bye weekend was Oct. 27, but that is also Jordan’s birthday. So we were conflicted, but Jordan said there was nothing else he wanted more for his birthday than for me to be his bride! So we booked the venue and started planning.
We were married at Calvary Baptist Church. This is my home church, and ever since I was a little girl, this is where I wanted to get married. Our reception was at the A.W. Todd Centre.
Our wedding day was so much fun. The weather was perfect, and everything was just as I had imagined since I was a little girl. I had been planning this day for as long as I can remember, and it was indeed a fairytale!
A favorite moment: My favorite moment of the wedding was simply being surrounded by friends and family. Everyone was so joyous and happy.
