It was a second “I do” for a happy integrate who, progressing that day, also enjoyed a rather slower-paced rite and jubilee with friends and family in a atrium of a PEC, that borders Hartsfield-Jackson International airport. As good as witnessing a integrate sell vows while surrounded by classical and stream Porsche cars, guest went on to suffer high-speed ride-alongs as passengers on a Driver Development Track. 

“The whole day exceeded anything that we could have dreamed of,” pronounced new bride Samantha Evans. “It was ideal for us. It fit us and who we are and how most we adore Porsche.”

Her new father John pronounced that guest had been “blown away” by a first-of-their-kind nuptials. “Everybody had a blast. They were only blown away. I’ve been to dozens of weddings and they’re all flattering most a same. With this one, it was really opposite from a normal in a good way. If you’re a automobile enthusiast, you’re going to adore it.
