Sara + Matt: A Love Story


Congratulations to Sara & Matt who celebrated their wedding day at Raintree Golf & Event Center in Uniontown, Ohio!

Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?

We love Fall and all that comes with the season. It made it so fun to decorate and the weather was perfect. Pictures on the golf course turned out great this time of year.

Q: Tell us your love story! How did he propose?

Matt surprised me when my family was all around, and we were at Hershey Park in PA. The park was decorated with so many Christmas lights and we went on the last ride of the night together (with my family) in the Hershey Kiss Kissing Tower. This tower takes you all the way to the top where you can overlook the park and once we reached it, he got down on one knee and proposed. Some of my family knew it was coming but for me of course and many others (especially the other random people on the ride), it was a BIG surprise. We went back to the lodge and celebrated. The next day planning began! :)

Q: What do you remember most about you wedding day?

How beautiful the room looked with all our decorations and how fulfilling it was to have both families together as one and dancing the night away. I loved our maid of honor and best man speeches and first dance.

Q: Did you do a First Look photo (if so, how did it make you feel)?

No, it was a surprise at the altar at our church.

Q: What did you appreciate most at Raintree Golf and Event Center?

How friendly the staff was and the hospitality that Dawn provided. I have never felt more in control of my special day and she was so willing to work with us to make it perfect. I loved the ability to decorate how we wanted and the space that was given as well as the use of the facilities and grounds. The food was delicious. I also enjoyed the connection with the nearby Cambria.
