Having made this official in terms of dating as they wandered outside a bar a few years back, followed by a proposal on the porch of her parents home…these two are a force to be reckoned with! Memories are so important to create and to preserve. Being able to drink wine, beer, and laugh your tails off as you celebrate things becoming extra official an anticipating your wedding day is so special!

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We met through friends!


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

Always keeping things fun, creating amazing meals to share and renovating our new home!


How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

From the day he asked me to go outside the bar we were at with him so we could talk (and hear each other!) and he asked me out. I just knew!


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

Crazy as it sounds, it was on my parents porch and was a bit of a crazy time because my sister had been at a local mall and there was a reported shooting, so I was in a frenzy trying to contact her and he paused talking about ‘our past, how much he cared for me, our future’, until I knew she was safe and I was like, what were you saying earlier and he broke out the ring!


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

OMG IT IS AMAZING, everything I’d hoped and hopefully it becomes a family heirloom!


Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

We knew the DJ and Photographer we wanted and chose our wedding date to ensure we could have both of them. Industrial, bohemian, family and friend centered is the goal.
