Andrea & Christopher’s wedding previews

A note from the bride:

Chris and I met in college at UT-Arlington in 2008. We had mutual friends who constantly tried to set us up on a blind date. We dated in 2009 but decided to stay friends. My friends would always tell me “You’re going to end up together, you guys are going to get married.” We were in and out of each other’s lives for 6 maybe 7 years before we decided to go on a date again. It was like best friends meeting up for dinner, after that is history. We dated for 3 years before he finally proposed!
Proposal: I had been dying to take a trip somewhere and decided on Chicago in May of 2018. We had our trip booked and we were ready to go. Within the first few hours there I was already irritated with him. He was being so grumpy and said I was constantly lingering over him. To my defense, the hotel room was small and I had nowhere else to go. (Little did I know he was trying to get the ring out of his bag to put in his pocket.) We walked around the city for a few hours and decided to go see Cloud Gate aka “The Bean” in millennium park. I had him take a picture of me alone and then asked him to jump in with me. He gave a random stranger his phone and I guess secretly told him he was about to propose. As he walked up to me the stranger yelled out “Do you want me to take a photo or a video?” I was thinking in my head, “this guy must be an iPhone user, not a droid user.” The next minute I know Chris is on the ground and I’m thinking what are you doing?! But there it was, a pretty box with a shiny ring! I didn’t even hear him say a word, I just saw the ring and was like, “Are you serious?” He knelt there patiently waiting for me to say something. Before I could say a word, I grabbed the ring out of the box and put it on my finger. The perfect fit! I then hear someone yell in the crowd “What did she say?” That’s when I realized what was really happening.

Molly & Diego’s wedding previews

A note from the bride:

We met in Chile in August of 2012. It was love at first site. We fell hard and fast for a few months until Molly’s time in Chile was finished. Although we knew it was something special, it did not seem realistic to be together, when we lived 1000s of miles away. In December 2013, Molly came for Christmas in Chile, in this time we started our relationship where we left it. This is when we found a love we could not break. We stayed together for 8 months while living in different countries. We talked on the phone for hours, watched movies together in Skype, and dreamed of what a future together would be like in the same place. In these 8 months we learned how to trust, communicate, and encourage each other while being so far apart. In August 2014, we finally were able to start a life in Chile. While living in Chile we became family. We did everything together, we worked, played, we traveled. We spent every moment with friends or family. We were always growing and learning about life. Here we are in 2018, ready to commit to a relationship that will last a lifetime. And we want all of the people who have supported us from the beginning.
The venue was gorgeous 20s Historic Mini Mansion in Wylie, I just loved everything about this place! I was able o capture some wonderful bridal and couple portraits using the different rooms within the house. One of Wylie’s landmark charms. 100 yrs old & on the Historic Downtown strip at Ballard & Brown, this beautifully restored 3700 sq ft craftsman lies in the heart & soul of the town’s shoppes, restaurants, winery & the Olde City Park. 5Bdrm, 2-story charmer, completely restored back to gracious era of the 1920s. High ceilings, hardwood floors throughout. Spacious with lovely antique personality furnished in every room. Within 10 mins of the world renown Southfork Ranch. 5 Mins from Lake Lavon. The family and friends from Chile were so kind and everyone had an amazing time.

Courtney & Susy’s wedding previews

Please tell us how you and your fiancé met, also give us a paragraph on the proposal:
How We Met: There’s a short story and a long story. The short and easy story that we tell most people is that we met through friends. The long story is that we both joined a Meetup group for LGBT women. If you’ve never heard of Meetup before it’s pretty cool. It’s not a dating app, it’s a people with common interests getting together app. There are all kinds of Meetup groups (ex: book clubs, dancing, foodies, young professionals, etc). Susy and I had never been to a Meetup before, this was our first one. We both were unsure about going but something (I’d like to think it was Fate) compelled us to go. We met a bunch of people at a cool restaurant called The Lot near White Rock Lake for food and beers. We had so much fun we went for a walk along the lake and then with a small group to Dave and Busters. At Dave and Busters, Susy and I played a zombie virtual reality game where we had to team up to defeat zombies. At the end of the game, it scored us as being 87% compatible (a number we still joke about today). From the moment we met, there was an instant connection. They say when you know you know, well I think we both knew this was something special. The rest as they say, is history. (This is taken from our website, feel free to check out more at www.courtneyandsusy.com)
The Proposal: I (Courtney) proposed to Susy on her 30th birthday. Her birthday also happened to fall on the 3rd year, 3rd month, 3rd week, and 3rd day that we had been together. I’m a bit of a numbers nerd, so I woke her up at 3:33am and told her I had an early birthday surprise I had to give her. I made her a love book (https://lovebookonline.com/) about all the things I love about her. On the last page it had a stick figure me asking her to marry me. Of course at 3:33am in the morning she was not about reading the whole book. She was tired and wanted to stop reading the book by like page 15. She had no clue what my plan was, but after some coaxing she read the whole thing. When she got to the last page her mouth dropped open and she looked up and I had the ring. It was a total surprise to her! We got to share the news with the rest of our family as we celebrated her birthday. It made for a very good way to turn 30!
