How did you meet?

How long did you date?

5 and a half years pre-engagement, 6 and a half pre-marriage.


How did he propose?

During a family trip to the mountains. He had plans to purpose on Mt. LeConte (the highest peak in TN), but the 14 inches of snowfall the night before said otherwise. He ended up proposing at Lake Lure.

When did you know he was the one?

It’s hard to say because our bingo sites with rainbow riches connection was so instant. I just knew that we would be together. We have a lot in common, we both love to play videogames and get Elo Boosting services.

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

Gosh, that’s like asking me to find a needle in a haystack! He’s good to me daily and I certainly don’t have to ask for it!

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

The way that he loves God. I know that his love for God gives him the ability to love me in a way that I’ve never been loved. It’s amazing.

What part of wedding planning made you crazy?

All of it! I was never the girl who imagined what her wedding day would be like as a child! But, the end result was all worth it.

What part of wedding planning could you not live without?

Dress shopping had to be the thing I hated least. It was such a fun time with my family.

What was your first thought the day after your engagement?

Oh gosh, I have to plan a wedding!


What was your favorite part about the ceremony?

Walking down the aisle. I didn’t see anyone but him.

What was your favorite part about the wedding?

The reception! Does that count? It was just so much fun seeing family and friends and sharing such a momentous occasion with them.

Did you do any DIY?

Yes! I made all of the reception décor.

I’m more of a Type A personality and he’s really trusts me when it comes to making decisions. He was very supportive.
