Elizabeth and Hunter
How We Met
Hunter and I met when my older sister married his best friend. The first time I saw him my eyes popped out of my head, but alas, I was 16 at the time and he was 21 so I went unnoticed. A few years later we reconnected at a music festival and this time, his eyes did the popping. The festival was followed by a summer of letter writing, late night phone calls, and a college photography course that just so happened to be in the town where he was living. That summer, we rescued a kitten, cooked every evening, got eaten alive by mosquitos watching the moon, and fell head over heels in the awful Texas heat. Needless to say, it did not take long for us to realize that we made a great team. After more than two years of dating, my heart still leaps when I look at him because I know our strength as a couple has withstood adversity and been defined by compromise, selflessness, and our faith.
How He Asked
Hunter got our families together on Thanksgiving at Sundance Square in Fort Worth and proposed under the Christmas tree.
