How did you meet?

We met on Liberty University’s Class of 2014 Facebook page in 2010.

How long did you date?  

We dated for 5 ½ years before marrying.

How did he propose?

Corey planned a surprise proposal which included a beautiful photo-shoot across our Alma Mater’s campus. He made me think we were helping our photographer friend with her final exam project, and he proposed during what I believe to be the last shot. Surprisingly when I turned around all of our family and friends were behind us to celebrate.

When did you know he was the one?

I knew Corey was the one when I realized I could open up to him and feel the same comfort I do when I talk with my daddy.

What is the cutest thing he has done for you without you asking?

He sang me his own version of “Love” by Musiq Soulchild and posted it on Youtube. He is not a great singer which made it even more special.

What is something you love about him that has completely changed your life?

He treats me with respect and reminds me daily of my worth and value to him.

What part of wedding planning could you not live without?

What was your favorite part about the wedding?

Did you do any DIY? If so, what?

Yes, I made our flower girl baskets, Corey made all the bowties, and my daddy made our cupcake tower.
