Sarah Nyberg and Edward Spencer found each other through Tinder in 2019, while both were attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Ed popped the question about a year later, during the pandemic. He planned to propose on a hill overlooking his family’s farm, but bad weather squelched that, so instead he dropped to one knee next to their couch halfway through a Harry Potter movie. Their wedding took place under a cloudless sky for an elegant al fresco ceremony with stunning views. Sarah wore her mother’s diamond earrings from her 1989 wedding and a diamond necklace from the groom’s mother as her something borrowed. Sarah and Ed chose a spot in the forest by the lodge for a sentimental first look, where the pair savored their time together before the ceremony began. The palette was based on the magnolia tree as a nod to the bride’s Southern background. “There was a big magnolia tree outside the house [where I grew up] in South Carolina, and I knew it would be my wedding flower. even as a little girl,” she says. After their sunset wedding, guests toasted the happy couple with a signature cocktail, “The Hank,” an espresso martini with tequila named after their blue heeler pup. For a cinematic ending to their chic nuptials, the newlyweds jumped in a classic red car, a Nyberg family heirloom, to drive off as husband and wife.
