Introducing the Neubauers

On September 18, 2021, the former Miss Libby Carr of Twin City and her now husband, Mr. Colin Neubauer of Alpharetta, met at the Georgia State Railroad Museum in Savannah at 6 p.m. sharp to swap vows in a classic ceremony.

The 29-year-old bride is the daughter of the Reverend and Mrs. Franklin Sasser of Garfield as well as Mr. and Mrs. Keith Carr of Statesboro. Her grandparents include Mrs. Arlene Carr of Swainsboro, the late Emory Carr, and the late Mr. and Mrs. Dickie Harrison.

Her 28-year-old spouse is the son of John and Wendy Neubauer of Gainesville, and he is the grandson of Mrs. Barbara Amor of Lexington, Missouri, the late Herbert Amor, the late Mr. and Mrs. Duane Wilkerson, and the late Horst Neubauer.

The bride’s stepfather officiated the ceremony.

Standing alongside the soon-to-be Neubauers on their special day were: maid of honor Olivia Carr, sister of the bride; matron of honor Savannah Conner; bridesmaid Anna Neubauer, the groom’s sister-in-law; best man Ian Neubauer, the groom’s brother; groomsmen Oscar Neubauer (the groom’s cousin), Daniel Frederking, and George Hirsch; and flower girls Adleigh Annleigh, and Emberliegh Childers, the bride’s nieces. Ushers included Wil Carr and Tyler Sasser, both brothers of the bride; Nathan Armor, the groom’s cousin, and Landon Clark.

The happy couple looked to numerous individuals and vendors to help with their wedding, beginning with the bride’s mother, who headed up the planning of the occasion. Elegant Savannah Weddings coordinated, Mark Williams Studio was on hand to document the day in photographs, band Emerald Empire Band provided entertainment, Honey Catering prepared a delicious meal for the Neubauers and their guests, and Tash Paints/Natasha Urbanowicz put her artistic talents to use by live painting throughout the evening. Allure Bridal/Frills By Scott dressed the bride while Tom James Clothier dressed the groom.

For her wedding, Mrs. Neubauer selected a simple, satin, strapless gown featuring a banded waiste and trumpet skirt gown. She accessorized her ceremony look with a tulle drape custom made for her by Scott Marchbanks. She also wore vintage, baroque, pearl-drop earrings.

For the reception, the bride removed her drape and veil and opted for a vintage, baroque, pearl necklace.

Her sweetheart donned a sharp, navy blue tux with a modern cut and black satin label and details.

The bridal party coordinated, wearing dresses of their choice in a steel blue shade to accent the moody color scheme. So did the groomsmen; they wore suits in navy blue with accentuating black shoes, belts, and socks.

The bride’s mother wore a beautiful tea-length dress in a shade of dusty mauve with a beaded bodice, and the groom’s mother fashioned a beautiful navy cocktail dress with beaded flutter sleeves.

Gay Griffin of Twin City, with the help of the bride and her mother, designed the floral arrangements. In keeping with the future Mrs. Neubauer’s desire to have a “very vintage look and feel for the entire event,” Griffin used shades of pink, red, and burgundy with deep greenery and pops of silvery blue.

The occasion began, of course, with the ceremony. Next came a cocktail hour. The happy couple entertained guests by the train museum smokestack with string music, hors d’oeuvres from the caterer, and cocktails garnished with edible flowers. Family and friends enjoyed lounging on the variety of vintage vignettes set out for their comfort.

Finally, the newlyweds and their guests partook in a reception inside the 1851-constructed Blacksmith Shop. Lit by café string lighting draped from wall to wall and hundreds of candles, the mood was aptly set for romance. The farmhouse tables were set with vintage candlesticks and candelabras, illuminating the floral arrangements that flowed from each end of the tables. All place settings were made of vintage china from the mother of the bride’s collection, including her own wedding china as well as that of the bride’s grandparents and great-grandparents.

Honey Catering’s Lazar Brown prepared a scrumptious spread for the couple and their guests to enjoy as part of the reception: cornbread layered salad, peach-glazed pork tenderloin, grilled chicken with white barbecue sauce, pimento cheese mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, squash casserole, sliced apples, raisins, feta, roasted pecans, and warm bacon vinaigrette, and honey-buttered rolls.

Patti Hendley’s Patti Cakes baked a three-tier vanilla cake with raspberry filling. The confection was iced in textured white frosting with custom topper figures of the couple’s two dogs, G and Bella. The groom opted for a variety of pies instead of a cake; offered were chocolate silk, apple, mixed berry, pecan and key lime.

Following the meal and desserts, the Neubauers and the crowd enjoyed drinks and dancing until the end of the evening.

The mother-son dance was set to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts, the daddy-daughter dance was set to “Your Little Girl” by Madison Watkins, and the newlyweds shared in “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton.

Mr. and Mrs. Neubauer departed the venue in a sparkler exit after spending the last moments of their reception in a private dance. They boarded a party bus and headed to an after-party on the rooftop of the Drayton Hotel in downtown Savannah.

They would go on to honeymoon at The Bungalows in Key Largo.

The newlyweds now live in Atlanta and are thoroughly enjoying married life.

The two began dating in late summer 2018 after connecting on the dating app, Hinge. Thanks to the matron of honor (who was doing all of the match-making at the time), Mr. Neubauer concluded the evening of his first date with his eventual wife by making a phone call to his mother to let her know he had found “his person.”

Just a few months later on a trip to the national parks of Utah, then Miss Carr knew herself she had found her soulmate as well.

The couple spent the next few years together. After two years of courting, Mr. Neubauer devised the perfect proposal plan. He was to pop the big question in March 2020 at The Tulip Festival in Amsterdam. However, the trip had to be canceled due to COVID.

Instead, he proposed on November 14, 2020 in Miss Carr’s Buckhead Atlanta apartment after she insisted a nap would be a better idea than a picnic.
