How did you two meet?

John David and I went to middle school, high school and college together. We had lots of mutual friends and had been good friends through the years, but it wasn’t until college that our friendship turned into more. (If you ask John David, he will tell you he had me wrapped around his finger since middle school)!

The Proposal

It was very hot, and for me, a long anticipated day. I was under the impression we were going to a family get together, but there were different plans in store for me. As we were driving through Birmingham, we pulled off to the side of the road due to “car troubles.” I, of course, very impatiently did not handle the car troubles well because I did not want to be late. After a few minutes, John David walked around to the side of the truck I was standing on and asked if I was ready. I knew by the look in his eyes this meant the day I had dreamed of was happening! We walked a little ways, and there stood a giant cross and the sweetest pictures and details where John David asked me to be his wife!

Favorite Wedding Moment

My most precious memory was seeing my dad for the first time. The entire day was a dream, but something about standing in white in front of my dad had to be one of the most sentimental parts of the day.

Favorite Wedding Details

My favorite details were being announced to “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC at the reception, and us walking out under an “Alabama shaker tunnel” at the end of the day. We are big “Bama” fans, and it was a fun way to incorporate a part of us into the wedding!
