How We Met

Valentines Day is either your best or worst enemy. In my case, as a mid-twenties, single girl, living in the city, odds were not good.My girlfriend talked me into going to dinner and out.She arrived at dinner with a LOVE FERN. From that point on, I knew it would be a good night!

We started off with dinner at Campisi’s, followed by a night out on the town. After a few vodka tonics I realized I lost my friend and somewhat panicked. I was searching the bar looking for a girl in a red top (it was valentines and everyone is in a red top).

As I was walking down the stairs I passed a super cute, fratastic man who I had to say hi to — the rest is history.

(Update: I located my friend.) Exactly two years later, the love of my life proposed to me in the middle of a “style shoot” at my friend’s condo. Justin and I are getting married on February 25, 2017 in Forth Worth, Texas!

How He Asked

I am not good at fashion I have never pretended to be good at fashion. So when my friend, Caroline Kraddick (a blogger) asked me to be part of her “Galentines” photoshoot my friends knew my outfit would be an issue. The night before “the shoot” my sister and Caroline came over with a dress and said wear this trust me. Little did I know there was a twist to the shoot…
