Kimberly Fayette Jean Hensley, of Varney, met Stephen Gregory Fife, of Kenansville, North Carolina, across the table in a boardroom. Soon after, they were meeting outside the office for dates. Stephen originally had planned on proposing over Valentine’s Day weekend, but Kim’s family had to rush home for an emergency. Instead, Stephen took Kim to Savannah, Georgia, the weekend after, where they travelled by rickshaw to Forsyth Park to admire the fountain and Spanish moss–draped trees. They meandered through the park until finally resting on a park bench, where Stephen got down on one knee and asked Kim to spend the rest of her life with him. Kim said yes, and they celebrated at Vic’s on the River, where they enjoyed dinner by candlelight. They were married eight months later at Wormsloe Plantation in Savannah, where guests were greeted by the couple’s dog, Luke, before they were seated under 100-year-old oak trees. For the ceremony, the bride wore an ivory, strapless lace mermaid gown with a satin sash that gathered into a bow in the back. For the reception, she changed into an ivory ball gown with full beading on the bodice and a layered tulle skirt. The bridesmaids wore full-length blush gowns of their own choosing with matching gold pumps. The groom wore a classic black suit with an ivory vest and bow tie and the groomsmen were attired in black suits with black vests and blush bow ties. The bride carried a bouquet of blush pink roses. Wicked Cakes of Savannah designed the round three-tiered wedding cake. Guests were transported by trolley to the reception at Vic’s on the River and were surprised with a fireworks presentation over the Savannah River. They were treated to the couple’s favorite candies and cookies from Savannah’s Byrd’s Famous Cookies, along with Mister Bee potato chips and Houston’s Peanuts. The couple resides in Leland, North Carolina.
