How did you two meet?
After only briefly meeting freshman year of college, ironically dressed as a bride and groom for the theme of the event, we knew that we wanted to know each other better. We parted ways, but Noah remained close friends with all of my friends and roommates. Architecture school kept me busy enough for a year and a half before I managed to make it to the big leagues. After reconnecting sophomore year, he quickly became my best friend, but soon after, we both knew there was something more there.
After a canceled flight, Noah drove through the night from North Carolina to propose to me. At the proposal he had rose petals and candles leading up to a satin box with my monogram. Inside of that box were keepsakes from our three and a half years of dating, including the engagement ring disguised in a ring pop bag because I had told him years prior that I would say yes to a ring pop.
Favorite Wedding Moment
Our two favorite moments from our wedding day were our wedding vows and our first dance. We both messed up when saying our wedding vows, and we held each other’s hands tight and laughed our way through it. When it came time for our first dance, we realized we had not thought to practice beforehand. Once again, we held each other, trusted in each other and lived in the moment.
Favorite Wedding Details
We got married in my childhood church, where my parents got married. Our flower girl wore the same dress as the flower girl in my parents’ wedding. I wore sapphire earrings that Noah gifted me for my something blue along with my garter that I wore the night I met Noah.
