Our love story

First Meet

June 2017

We met through mutual friends Rachel and Cory Putnam. They believed we would be a perfect match and attempted multiple times to get us to talk to each other. We finally began talking after prolonging it for months. Even though the conversations were short and suddle, a bigger plan was in the making.

First Date

August 2017

The first date, even though not the perfect dating scenario, was to work out together at a local gym. We spent hours walking on treadmills and talking about our lives. The night ended with a slow cruise and a couple dollar McChickens at a local McDonalds.

The Proposal

August 2019

I had spent hours planning and preparing a magical moment in our horse barn with her horse. I played her "Merry Me" by Train on my guitar as she walked into the barn.

Stepping Stones

January 2020

We were blessed with a beautiful baby boy Bentley to enter our already happy family. Bentley being such a happy baby grew in the hearts of everyone who came close to him. He loves his brother and sister, Ethan and Taylor..

We are going to... Celebrate Our Love
