How did you two meet?
Chris and I met during our senior year at The University of Alabama. Chris introduced himself to me while we were both at Innisfree Pub, and I responded, “Yeah, I know who you are.” I was obviously embarrassed! Later that night, I told a friend that I met a cute boy while we were out. She asked who it was and knew him from high school! She set us up for the first date party of the school year, and we’ve been together ever since!
Chris made plans for our families to have dinner at The View at The Club. He asked if I wanted to go early with him to have a drink. While we were taking a photo, Chris got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Our families were watching through the window the entire time, and I had no idea!
Our first dance to “September” (September 21, 2017 was the night of our first date party together). We were so excited to get out there and dance, and we felt like it set the tone for the rest of the night!
Favorite Wedding Details
Our welcome boxes were one of my favorite details! Chris and I included different Birmingham snacks since a lot of our guests were from out of town. We included Savage’s smiley cookies, Naughty but Nice Kettle Corn Co. kettle corn and Alabama Peanut Co. peanuts.
