When and How Did You Meet
We went to high school together but never knew each other. Ended up buying houses right down the road from each other. A mutual friend said we would be perfect together as a couple. He asked me out, I said no, it was not good timing for me. About a week later I asked for a rain check and the rest is history!
Tell Us About the Proposal
We were on a weekend vacation in Florida visiting my grandparents. He took me out to dinner to my favorite restaurant on Daytona Beach. I wanted to take a photo on the deck but he insisted we go down on the beach. I was SO mad because I had to take off my shoes and roll up my pants. He grabbed a woman that was walking in from the beach to take our photo. He told her what he was doing as I was storming onto the beach. I put out my arm to put around him for the photo and he got down on one knee. The entire restaurant watched from the deck and clapped. It was completely unexpected and the best moment of my life.
Tell Us About the Look / Theme / Style
The wedding is in May. We are going for a rustic country wedding. Our colors are lilac and plum with charcoal/silver accents.
What Inspired the Vision
We both grew up in the country and wanted to keep the wedding simple and close to our hearts and home.

What Moment of the Day Were You Most Looking Forward to
When I go to walk down the isle and everyone is looking at me, I cant wait to look at him, seeing his reaction, and see the man of my dreams waiting to give me his last name.
Any Special Details
I will be wearing part of my mom’s hat that she wore on her wedding day in my hair. I will also be representing Penn State with my blue garter.
