Laura and Cody
How We Met
Cody and I were college sweethearts. We met at the end of my sophomore and end of his junior year at The University of Georgia. Cody told a mutual friend of ours that he had a crush on me and knew that I was going to be the girl he married. We went on a date a few weeks later, and the rest is history. Everything was always so easy with him. Channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw – “maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”
How He Asked
My fiance, Cody was born and raised in Lexington, KY. Coincidentally, as a child, I told my parents that I was destined to marry a Kentucky boy (a lifelong dream of attending The Kentucky Derby). Well, my dream came true. His parents live on a beautiful horse farm – my happy place. We were marveling at the sunset when Cody went and grabbed our puppy, Ollie. Ollie ran up to me – with a note around his collar. As I read the note, I began to tear up as I realized what was happening. The last line read “you can look up now” and Cody was on one knee. As you can tell from the picture, Ollie was absolutely ecstatic. It was the best moment of my life and a day I will never forget.
