“Mason and I met when we were in High School. I was a sophomore, and he was a senior. We became really good friends and talked almost every day. Finally, the summer of before my junior year of high school, Mason asked me out on a date. Our first date was meant to be at the Zoo because he knew my love of animals, but we were both nervous to be alone together so we decided to go to the movies the night before to break the ice. We dated throughout college and both attended USI together and actually carpooled to USI together. We dated for 6 ½ years before we finally tied the knot. Mason proposed to me in his mother’s garden surrounded by blooming flowers while his best friend took pictures. We bought our first home together about a year before we got married. We live together with our 4 dogs and 5 cats. We are known as the “Old” couple because we would rather stay at home and spend time together than go out. Our wedding date was very important to us because we started dating on the 14th, and my birthday is the 14th so we waited almost two years after getting engaged to get married so that we could get married in April on the 14th. The most important thing we brought to our wedding was “Love.” We wanted everyone to enjoy the romantic atmosphere and to feel the love we have for each other. We incorporated a lot of floral into our wedding to symbolize the floral atmosphere from our engagement. I also have a love of all things ‘Bling’ and mixed that in with the floral theme. We all had a great time the day of the wedding riding around in the golf carts while taking wedding pictures and luckily the rain held off so we could have our ceremony at The Roofless Church.”
