Mandi Bickes & Eric Segale

May 26, 2019

When Mandi Bickes made a list of 30 things to do before she turned 30, she had little idea it would lead to her happily ever after. A helpful roommate noticed one of the items was to ride a motorcycle, and she set Mandi up with Eric Segale, who just so happened to own a Harley. It took one ride for the two to hit the road to romance, and after three years of dating, the couple returned to Pretty Place. A year prior, they’d been stranded at the scenic site when Mandi lost the car key. This time, though, everything was as it should be as Eric got down on one knee and asked Mandi to be his wife. The couple then headed off to Birds Fly South for a surprise engagement party, and began to plan their dream day. During a 95-degree heat wave, Mandi and Eric said “I do” at Riverain Farm, with a stunning lake backdrop and luckily without a single drop of May showers. In a perfect Martina Liana gown and the veil her sister wore 10 years before, Mandi danced all night with Eric, family, and friends to music by Oxford Soul before settling into married life. Mandi is an area vice president with ProLogistix and ResourceMFG, and Eric is a superintendent at Brasfield & Gorrie.
