We have been in the same grade and same class since 1st grade! In 6th and 7th grade, we were “boyfriend and girlfriend,” but I broke it off for ideas of finding something better! On September 6, 2006, we got back together and have been together ever since! High school sweet hearts!
Kevin proposed on Christmas Eve 2011. He proposed on the dock over the pond in our back yard! When I got home from a long day of Christmas with family, he was at my house waiting on me! As soon as I got out of my car, he blindfolded me. He said he was taking me to look at my present! He said it was too big to wrap! When he took the blindfold off me, we were at the dock, and he had it lit with over 200 candles. It was picture perfect! The engagement was from Christmas Eve 2011 to February 23, 2013.
Kevin helped a lot with the planning! He helped gather beans and wheat from his farm that we used as decorations! He helped move and decorate everything at the reception. We used his father’s antique truck as a photobooth back drop! It was a very special touch as Kevin’s father passed away in 2007. We used the bride’s father’s antique, five-window 1953 GMC pickup truck as the transportation from church to reception.
I was happy all day! I wasn’t a crier that day. I was all smiles! I was very nervous during the ceremony being in front of all those people! The reception was so much fun with lots and lots of dancing! The band was awesome! We haven’t had that much fun in a long time! The photobooth was a highlight for sure and gave us very funny pictures! My wedding colors were black and cream to match our rustic theme! That fit us and our lifestyles! Low’s Bridal and Formal created an awesome, memorable experience for me and my family! They are an awesome group to work with! M Little Photography was incredible! I couldn’t have asked for anyone better! They did anything and everything I wanted and made me feel like family. We went to Grand Cayman Islands Beach Suits. It was wonderful! It was beautiful. We swam with the dolphins and the sting rays! We also went snorkeling. Besides that, we just soaked up the sun and relaxed.
