How we met:
We met at the South Texas Speedway(the dirt track) through friends of friends.

Proposal:
We went to Knolle Farm to look around and right in the middle of our tour, he dropped down to one knee and asked me to marry him. Little did I (the bride) know that he had this planned the entire time.

Favorite detail:
Bride: Our own touch of camouflage from a company owned by a close friend. All the decorations that were used are being used in other ways around our new house to remind us of our wedding day. Groom: I feel mine was all my family and friends smiles when they saw my beautiful bride and the fact that she let me have my camo wedding.

Favorite moment:
Bride: Watching my new husband’s face as I walked down the aisle start to tear up and it made me start to cry.
Groom: My favorite moment was seeing my bride walking down the aisle.
I couldn’t help but smile all night long.

Biggest challenge:
Bride: Not seeing or talking to each other the day of the wedding because we haven’t been apart in over a year. Groom: Making sure I looked good for her and not being able to see or talk to her before the wedding.

Funniest moment:
When our 13 year old nephew and Jr groomsmen decided to “twerk” on a family friend of ours and her entire face went pale white and then bright red. Groom: Watching everybody at the wedding try to dance.

Advice for future brides or grooms:  Bride: Make the wedding yours and
only yours. Do something out of the
box (like our country side coming out with all the camouflage) and don’t let anyone tell you any differently.
Groom: Make sure you do everything you can to help out with the wedding
to help make her life easier.

Why did you get married, or what does marriage mean to you?

Bride: Marriage means the start of a life together. You no longer have yalls separate lives and just intertwine together. You are now one and treat each other as such. Groom: I got married to my best friend that’s why I did it and it means the world to me to get to share my life with such an amazing person.
