Liz & Jack-June 14, 2014
June 15, 2014
I met Jack nearly five years ago in my biology class at Texas A&M. I was just starting my freshman year and he was in his 2nd year. After a few weeks of stealing glances at each other, we started casually chatting after class. Soon after we starting talking, he asked if he could walk me to my car since we had gotten out of class late that night. I knew almost immediately that he was my soulmate. The thought that kept flashing in my mind was, “Oh my gosh, he actually exists!” A few more weeks went by before he finally asked me out on a date. He was still pretty shy and had to hide his face behind a newspaper to ask me. It was adorable.
Over the years we got to know each other so well, and in December of 2013, Jack casually brought up the thought of marriage. I gave a big smile and of course loved the idea. Then, on New Year’s Eve, he looked me in the eyes and asked me to marry him. I immediately replied “Yes” and the whirlwind of wedding planning commenced.
Our wedding weekend was a family celebration and we loved every minute of it. There were a couple of wedding hiccups, but overall, most things went off without a hitch. I loved being able to stay the venue the night before the ceremony with all my bridesmaids. The morning before the ceremony my bridesmaids and I were able to just sit back and relax while the venue staff took care of everything. Most importantly, I was able to spend time and celebrate the day with my friends and family.
