Diana & Aaron- June 3, 2017

Diana and Aaron were going through life very content.  They met each other the very first time after Diana had just finished the Messina Hoff half marathon and ran in the roses. But when insightful mutual friend, who happened to be Aaron’s best friend’s mother reacquainted them at church, the first sign of real love and connection began to appear. They are both big baseball fans and their friendship began to grow as they would see each other at little league games, watching their mutual friend’s grandson play.  It didn’t take long till they went on their first date. When Aaron was apart from Diana he noticed over time that life wasn’t as full as he once thought, and he genuinely missed her. He started thinking about her more and more and the quality of her sense of humor, wit, creativity, and spark for life showed him what he never knew he needed. Diana’s admiration and respect of Aaron flourished she saw him lead worship at church and serve in music ministry. They both knew they that this was love and in March they were engaged. Diana and Aaron were married 6-3-17!

 


Sarah & Brian-May 27, 2017

Let’s see, it was a long time ago in a galaxy far away. There I (Brian) was flying my hot rod space freighter in pursuit of a massive bounty for the Empire when… wait wrong story.

I had just gotten out of the Army, and returned to College Station Texas as a full time staff member with Transportation Services at Texas A&M, while I worked on my academics and graduate school admissions. Shortly after the move I attended a friends fourth of July party, and met Sarah a beautiful, exciting, and incredibly intelligent woman. Over the course of the night, and the next few weeks we hit it off texting, chatting, and hanging out. We were relatively shy about actually acknowledging our interest in each other, and it finally took a dear friend, who will remain nameless, to give us the kick in the pants we needed to start dating. The rest is history…

But seriously, after about two years of dating I knew I was ready to make things permanent. To ask Sarah to be the permanent companion to my Doctor Who, or the other way around… depends on who you ask. With the help of some good friends and some clever planning I connived a plan for our vacation to California. Our trip to Disneyland was both the most exhilarating, and stressful vacation I’d taken. Among the things that nearly went wrong were the ring shipping late, and Sarah nearly uncovering the plot. After our first day in the park I managed to slip away during dinner at Ariel’s grotto and speak with the amazing staff who were very excited to help me. The surprise for dessert was a plate with fruit and the words “will you marry me?” written in chocolate.  Naturally she said yes, and the rest… is the start of another tale… Sarah and Brian were married May 27, 2017 and are living happily ever after.

 


Jacque & Jonathan-October 1, 2016

Jonathan and Jacque went on a date at the beginning of their relationship to Central Park in College Station. That night under the lit branches of an old oak tree, Jacque shared that she wanted this to be a tradition. A thought immediately sprang into Jonathan’s head that this would be the place he proposed to her. Jonathan knew she was the one. Her cheerful spirit, her laughter that filled up any room. Jaque was the one he was going to marry. Jonathan waited until the time was just right and brought her back to Central Park and under the branches of the old oak tree that were mysteriously not lit and nervously asked her to marry him. Jacque thought he was joking because in the darkness she couldn’t see the ring. Jonathan assured her this was no joke, after little laughter she said yes. Jonathan and Jacque were married October 1, 2016.

 


Lauren and Tom-September 24, 2016 

Lauren and Tom. If a picture is worth a thousand words, their story shines even more radiantly than any photograph. Tom is a fire fighter, full of personality and grounded in strong values. Lauren runs track at Texas A&M. Lauren is passionately determined to meet her goals and dreams. Tom and Lauren both possess virtues that have revealed to be the foundation of their love. When they met in their home town of Rogers, Texas seven years ago they both saw something really unique in each other. Their faith in God has played an essential part in drawing their hearts together. Tom knew right away that she was special and set a part for something bigger and he wanted to be a part of that.  Lauren and Tom became engaged over Christmas and were married September 26, 2016.

 


Sean & Ashley-August 13, 2016

Sean and Ashley grew up in College Station. They attended the same middle school and high school. Even then, Sean could see that something  was drawing him to Ashley. Her warmth and smile caught his attention, but it wasn’t until seven years later, when they both happened to live in Houston, that and a mutual friend reintroduced them. Almost immediately their relationship started thriving. Ashley was finishing nursing school and Sean persistently proved that he cared about her. Sean was humble, brave, and supportive.  Ashley and Sean grew in their relationship. Ashley’s warmth, compassion, and loving spirit were the same qualities Sean saw so many years ago.  Sean and Ashley were married August 13, 2016.

 


Cathy & Rob-June 4, 2016

Rob and I met on what would be approximately two years before our wedding day. We met on June 6th, 2014 at Hurricane Harry’s. The Josh Abbott Band was performing that night, and the place was packed to the point you could hardly move. When I say that I bumped into the love of my life at a dance hall, I laugh because I literally bumped into Rob. He apologized, and we quickly joked about how crowded the place was before he went on his way. To my surprise I was interrupted a few minutes later by Rob coming back to ask me if I’d like to dance. It all started with a dance, and the rest was history. We went on our first date two days later. Rob and I were inseparable. He really became my best friend. After he finally broke the ice and said he loved me for the first time, I have yet been able to not say it at least 100 times a day since then. I like to put it like this… I may be extremely indecisive about the little things in life like what I want for dinner every night, but I have never been more sure in my life that I want to spend the rest of my days eating dinner with Rob.

After 10 months of dating, our proposal was the perfect reflection of our witty and light-hearted love for each other. Better yet, it was a perfect reflection of Rob’s ability to drive me crazy. Both of our families came into town because Rob received his Fightin’ Texas Aggie Ring. On the way back to the parking garage, we passed the century tree. Our friend, Conner, had been there taking pictures of Rob’s ring day, and he wanted to take pictures of us at the century tree. As we walked under the tree, Rob turned to me and stated that he didn’t really want to {just} date anymore. Mad, upset, and confused I looked at him asking what he was talking about. He just looked at me, paused, and reached into his pocket because “his phone was ringing”. I look away and then back to find him getting down on one knee while saying: “I don’t just want to date anymore, because I’d rather marry you instead.” With tears streaming down my face and an extreme urge to slap him for making my emotions go through a roller coaster, I blubbered out “Yes!” and can still hear our families crying, laughing, and cheering in the background.

Our wedding day was seriously a dream come true. Originally, our wedding was supposed to be outside by the gazebo, but with summer showers off and on the entire day, it was moved inside at the last minute. (And you would have never known had I not just told you!) It just goes to show that God’s plans are so much better than our own, because it was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! My amazing team of vendors did a great job of taking my vision and turning it into reality. It went by in a blur, but it was one big happy blur! All we could say was how much fun we had and how beautiful it all came together. We felt extremely blessed to have such loving friends and family. From being surrounded by my favorite people to our heartfelt vows, I don’t think I could not have been happier on my big day. We are so excited to see what God has in store next for us.


Christina & Jim -September 26, 2015

Christina and Jim met each other in middle school, complete opposites. Jim was a goofy,outgoing complete class clown and Christina was a well-behaved, slightly reserved, teacher’s pet. Who would have thought that they would soon become best friends and start dating near the end of high school. Their love blossomed over their years together, but who they are in their hearts never changed. Jim is still a little goofy and Christina is still grounded and together they are both very laid-back. Jim proposed in January 2015 and Christina of course said yes. Simplicity is something they cherish about their relationship and they wanted that reflected on their wedding day. Seeing their photos you see their love and easy-going elegance that captured perfectly.
