How did you two meet?

Jimmy and I met playing kickball in the fall of 2015. We were friends for several years before he asked me to Phoenix Ball in 2019. The rest was history!

The Proposal

Jimmy asked me to go to dinner with his family. On the way there, he said he wanted to see “a new area” of the Cannonball Factory walking trail. This was right on the way to his parents’ house, so it didn’t seem like a crazy idea. Once we got to the Cannonball Factory and walked a little bit, he suddenly stopped and said, “We have a lot of fun together, don’t we?” I said yes! Then he asked, “Well do you want to have fun forever?” He got down on one knee and proposed! His god sister was waiting in the bushes, taking pictures! We had a big party at his parents’ house with family and friends. I had no idea!

Favorite Wedding Moment

Turning around at the end of the ceremony and seeing all the wonderful family and friends that showed up! The sunset was beautiful that day too, so it made our outdoor ceremony even more special.

Favorite Wedding Details

Our marque letters (Say It in Lights, LLC), balloons (Top Knot Parties) and our polaroid guest book were some favorites! We also had a bagpiper, Ryan Morrison, that played some songs, including the hymn, “Be Thou My Vision.” It was a unique musical addition that went well with the violin players and the outside atmosphere of our ceremony.
