"I remember the first time I saw Chris. I was at a Lanierland basketball game and he was sitting right behind my best friend and I. I thought he was very attractive (duh) and weirdly enough, he popped up as a suggested friend on Facebook like the next week. So of course, I had to add him. We didn’t hit it off at first (he thought he was too cool for me) 😂
We started dating on February 16, 2013. We were friends for about a year and a half to two years before that though. So we have officially been together for a little over 7 years.
- The Proposal Story -
It was a totally normal day. Slept in, grocery shopping then we went fishing. We have a park behind our house that we go to a lot so nothing out of the ordinary. We walked to the point at the end of the trail and was fishing. He started acting strange and then boom! I turned around and he was on his knee and I was in total shock. No makeup on and sweats but it honestly couldn’t have been more us. He planned a surprise lunch for me with our family afterwards.
The planning process was super easy. Andrea is a literal godsend. She was amazing. Anything I needed, she was there. I never really stressed out throughout the process. I only had a few requests that I wouldn’t budge on but she is one of my favorite people.
Our wedding day was a fairytale. I remember everyone asking me how I was doing and I just continued to be so stress free. I honestly thought something was wrong with me because I wasn’t nervous or anxious and definitely not a bridezilla. I was just so excited and ready to see him. My bridesmaids and I actually finished getting ready about 2 hours ahead of schedule and we just hung out together. It was the most stress free day and the best I could have asked for. They handled everything and it was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t have asked for any better.
Our favorite thing about being married is always having a partner. The good, the bad, the great times and the hard times, I always have someone in my corner and a teammate through it all. It’s amazing!
