Amy and I met at the hair salon! Let’s just say she gave me a haircut that changed my life. Literally. We had a mutual friend who went to Amy for really awesome haircuts, and she had told me to go see Amy. It took me almost a year to walk in that salon, but I was so glad that I did. She had me mesmerized: she was beautiful and absolutely stunning! Plus she gave me the most awesome haircut ever. The sparks were flying, and I had not felt this way before.

I left the salon not knowing how I was going to not see her again. I sat in the parking lot and contemplated how long it would be until my next haircut and if she would even like me the way I liked her.

Needless to say she felt the same way, and with a little courage, I asked her out. I was on duty one night, and she showed up with Starbucks and flashed me a smile that I’ll never forget. And so we began our journey of many more haircuts and getting-to-know-you dates. When we realized we both lived in Texas and had more and more in common everyday, we knew we had found our match.

I proposed to Amy. We had discussed with friends and each other about being proposed to and vice-versa. Amy wanted to be proposed to, so I intended on going all out with romance and dazzle. I rounded up a group of our closest buddies and started operation “Amy Will You.” From pumpkins to roses, we clambered up to the mountain peek of Craggy Pinacle, and even Hurricane Mathew made a debut.

I was beyond nervous, but so excited, and so sure: more surer than I had ever been before. [Editors note: we know “more surer” isn’t a real word, but we love it anyway!] I got down on one knee and asked her to adventure through life by my side. She said yes! We celebrated for a moment, and all the while another surprise was still waiting: Amy had a ring too! She was grabbing something from her bag and then spun around and asked if I would adventure through life with her. A double proposal, unplanned, and yet so in sync. If that’s not meant to be, I don’t know what is.

We both have a love for rustic Texas, so we chose The Farm because it has that same feel. With the barn and horses, it’s also very elegant and timeless. It captured both our personalities perfectly.

Our wedding bands were handmade by a local goldsmith, Susan, at Blue.

As a local to the area, Amy knew a lot of people, and we felt we wanted our wedding to feel like a community coming together to support and share in our love. Everything from the flowers to the photos were done by friends and family. Amy and I didn’t hire a wedding planner; we did everything ourselves. We wanted our wedding to reflect the magic we built together.

I wore a charcoal gray and black, handmade, tailored Italian suit. Amy wore a black and white hand-sewn champagne flute backless gown. Our attire was chosen to represent how we love to get fancy while being wild and free to be ourselves. A mix of tradition with edge. We handed out rose quartz to our guests to hold during our ceremony to charge with the energy around us. We also wore a rose quartz necklace as well. Amy’s “something blue” was her grandmother’s ring; mine was a blue tie bar Amy got me for a wedding gift that was engraved with “Fancy AF.”

Our ceremony was full of magic. We both wrote our own vows. We spoke of the representation of the legend of the Wolf. How this creature has been a integral part of our relationship, through growth and protection. We had a friend call the corners and do a hand fasting ceremony and tie the ancient Celtic love knot over our hands while incorporating the elements of earth, air, water, and fire. The magic felt that day was unforgettable as guests have told us.
