#becomingbowman - Today we are featuring Kereisha + Justin's Big Day here at Willow Creek this past August! We absolutely adored working with & getting to know Kereisha, Justin, and their coordinator, Liz, throughout the planning process. We are ecstatic to be sharing their experience & story, along with their gorgeous photos on the blog today!
Thank you, Kereisha & Justin for letting us be a part in your Big Day!
"We met while I was in college and Justin was stationed overseas. We were penpals, wrote to each other, and we became close friends. When he returned stateside almost a year later, we decided to pursue a relationship. We have been together since March 10, 2016, but friends before that."
- The Proposal Story -
"It was not the most romantic proposal. We both decided that we loved each other and wanted to get married. We were waiting for the big proposal and announcement. His original proposal plans were halted due to the sudden death of my oldest brother. A few weeks later, he got down on one knee and proposed in his apartment. It was now or never because we were headed out the door for our engagement pictures."
"It was a perfect day for us and our families. It was so smooth and it felt nice to not have to worry about anything because it was all taken care of. My planner, Liz, and our coordinator through Soirées Southern Events made sure my day was nothing less than perfect."
"Our planning process was very smooth and I have no complaints. We started planning over a year out and had a phenomenal team behind us. There were outside stressors like me finishing up nursing school and Justin being deployed. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of our planner and coordinator."
What is your favorite thing about being married?
"Our favorite thing about being together is starting our own journey with each other. Since the wedding, I became a registered nurse and we relocated to Illinois due to the military. We also bought our first home together!"
