Emily & Miles tied the knot on March 11, 2018!

Emily & Miles are the sweetest couple but they also have a very comic side.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with reception at The Manderely both located in DeSoto, TX.

Drake & Kelsey’s wedding previews – October 29, 2017

From the bride:

Drake and I knew each other in high school and ran in similar circles for a little while, but never dated. As college wore on, we both dated different people, but that didn’t work out for either of us.

The summer leading into our junior year of college, I was spending time with my friend Victoria (she spoke at the wedding), who happened to be good friends with Drake at the time.

Anyways, Drake hadn’t seen her for a while and knew she was about to leave for school, so he invited both of us to hang out with him and a group of friends. As soon as we showed up, Drake will tell you “that was that.” We hung out all summer and even a couple months into the school year before he asked me to be his girlfriend (he had just gotten out of a serious relationship and didn’t want to risk moving too quickly).

Our engagement story isn’t the most traditional, but basically we both decided we were ready and went to pick out a ring together. We drove home unengaged, walked in the door to Drake’s apartment, where he proposed to me. It was very intimate, one of my fondest memories.

After 15 months of planning, the wedding day came together perfectly. I can’t imagine it having gone better, and I have several friends, family members, and people like yourself to thank for it — would not have been possible without y’all.
