Cara Dee Cusick and
Garrett Matthew St. Clair

July 29, 2017

For years, Garrett had been a client of Cara’s at her hair salon, but then one Valentine’s Day evening, when the two bumped into each other outside of the salon, everything changed. “We’ve been inseparable ever since.” What Cara remembers most about her big day was the immense happiness and love she felt from the many close friends and family – many of whom traveled from across the country. For Garrett, he will never forget the moment his bride walked down the aisle: “I was marrying not only the most beautiful woman in the world, but also my best friend.” During the evening, the whole party had a bit of a laugh. “Cara challenged everyone to jump off the dock into the lake,” says Garrett. Feeling adventurous, about 20 people, including the groom, took the plunge. “We were all shocked to find the lake was a lot shallower than expected – our feet not only touched the muddy bottom, but the mud was up beyond our knees.” More games and a pig roast kept the night filled with warmth and laughter.
