Hoosier couple, Sarah and TJ, dated for eight years before TJ popped the question in downtown Indianapolis, Ind., on December 2018. Eleven months later, on Nov. 16, 2019, they were married at St. Augustine Church in Renssealaer, Ind. The celebration was held at Signature Banquets in Lowell, Ind.


Sarah and TJ’s wedding was full of magical moments they’ll always cherish. One of those was near the end of the evening, when the pair were baout to collapse from exhaustion. They made their way back to the head table to sit and began to scan the crowd. What they saw touched their hearts: their dear friends and family members were having the time of their life! It was a beautiful, heartwarming sight for the newly married couple.


One of the most tender moments of the day was a surprise Sarah planned for TJ. He assumed her favorite song by Ed Sheeran would play during their first dance. He was shocked and a little misty-eyed when he heard “Nothing Else Matters” by his all-time favorite band, Metallica.

The happy couple have one piece of advice for others who will soon tie the knot: “Enjoy the planning process and definitely make the most of your wedding day. It may seem far away right now, but that time will fly by way too fast!


TJ and Sarah ordered customized can coolers as wedding favors for their guests. They chose several colors and a few cute sayings to print on them, along with their names and wedding date.


What a big hit! Some guests took home more than one to use in the future.
