an interview between the photographer and bride, Kate…
“How did you meet?
We both started working at the Chick-fil-A in Tuscaloosa the summer of 2014. The first time I saw him my heart literallly dropped and I fell halfway into a trash can. He walked RIGHT by me and says he doesn’t remember that happening. But I had a major crush on him ever since. It took him 6 months after that happened for him to introduce himself, get my number, and ask me on a date!
How did he propose?
One of our favorite things to do is go hiking and explore pretty things! There is a spot in Tuscaloosa called Lake Nicol that has a really pretty waterfall with a swimming hole, and also cliffs that wrap a good ways around the lake. On Sunday, May 15th, 2016 after church, he took me to one of the cliffs with a blanket and a basket of goodies. We talked and ate the shrimp alfredo he cooked. As we were about to leave he knelt down and popped the question!!
What was your first date?
December 24, 2014 We went to go see The Hobbit! I woke up early to pack for Christmas while he worked all day so by the time we got to the movie I was exhausted! I don’t do well if I don’t get enough sleep SO I ended up falling asleep during the movie! I was mortified but he thought it was cute.
When did you know he was the one?
After about six months of us dating I went on a mission trip to Zambia, Africa. He had recently professed how serious he was and his interest in never letting me go. I was his first serious relationship, but he was not mine. Therefore, I was very reserved and extra cautious with my heart. It was by the end of my trip that I knew this was the person for me. There were too many non-coincidences that lead me to be completely confident we were supposed to be together.”
