One of the things no one prepared me for in moving to the south was football, or any college sport for that matter. Coming from New England where my teenage years saw Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots victories that painted Boston red, white and blue, I thought the whole world watched professional sports. Upon arriving to Greenville I was introduced to a passion that I can’t even describe to people back home… Taylor and Zach not only had that kind of passion for each other, they also had a deep rooted love for their alma mater, Clemson. They met in class a few years ago when Taylor walked straight to the back of the room to sit next to Zach even though there were dozens of open seats. (I even got a full enactment because their professor let us take pics iN that very classroom where they met!). Zach was a bit confused at first but ultimately delighted that Taylor chose that seat that day. It only made sense that on their wedding day, they would say their vows on the very grounds of Clemson University at the pavilion at the Madren Center. The ceremony was a simple and elegant set up with a vignette of trees overlooking the lake, uh, breathtaking! After the ceremony and dancing, it was on to the toasts where Taylor’s dad emotionally talked about bringing his kids home in Clemson gear and how overjoyed he was that Clemson delivered Taylor such a great guy to call her husband. The pavilion could not have been a more perfect spot to watch the sunset over the lake and dance the night away.
