Josh sees Daria for the first time in her wedding dress, as she walks down the aisle to meet him at the altar under the trees.

Daria and Josh, who met on a dating app like many couples these days, bonded over Xbox One games, University of Georgia football games, and dinner-and-a-movie dates. It didn't take either one very long to realize they were meant to be together. 

Their plans were to marry at an old courthouse in Decatur, Georgia. But alas, COVID came along and those plans were tossed out the window. They are still planning a large reception to take place at the Dekalb History Center, some time post-COVID.

But plans change. Since they wanted to go ahead and get married, they opted for a small backyard ceremony at Josh's parent's home in Tuciker, Georgia, followed by dinner, cake cutting and toasts in the house. A few friends and family joined them to celebrate their nuptials. 

Their big day, eventhough smaller than planned, was filled with lots of love and laughter.
