Paige and Justin
How We Met
Justin and I met through a mutual friend. We had both attended University of West Georgia and were back in Carrollton to spend time with college friends. We were both out that night, not knowing our friend groups all hung out together. The next day, Stacey (mutual friend) and I were talking and I was telling her how cute I thought Justin was and she tells me he had asked for my number! We hit it off immediately, finding out that both of our dogs are named Jax and named after the character in Sons of Anarchy! That same day he asked me out on a date and it was the best first date.. took me to Mumford and Sons in concert. Even then, we couldn’t get enough each other and the fact that it seemed like we’d known each other for years, it was perfect. Amazing things can happen when you least expect them!
How He Asked
I had been asking Justin if we could have professional pictures taken for our new house so we decided to have a sorority sister of mine, Ashley Upchurch take the pictures for us. She owns a photography company by the name Sage and Cedar. We were making our way through the park, taking various pictures here and there. Ashley wanted us to take a dip pose picture in a secluded patch where the sun was shining just right. Justin asked that we take one more, as he turned to me and said, “Do you still want to spend forever with me?” The water works began as he got down on one knee and I said YES to spending forever with my best friend! The ring has a very sentimental meaning, the middle diamond was once my momma’s. This ring is not only a symbol for Justin and I’s life together but my momma is a part of it too.
