This Emotional Groom Reaction Will Make You Cry!
From The Bride: Travis and I met one Sunday afternoon in June of 2011 during our first TCU orientation session. We were both fresh out of high school, coming from Nashville & Houston to embark on our college journeys, but neither of us could have imagined that our stories would be so shaped by the boy and girl that sat next to us in that tiny classroom. But, that is how the Lord works, in wondrous ways and often when we least expect it. Travis & I began dating shortly into our freshman year, and four quick years later, he proposed in a beautiful Ritz Carlton courtyard in Naples, Florida. The Lord’s faithfulness came to us that Sunday in June in a little room during TCU orientation, and it has followed us through our four years at college together. He has guided us and stood beside us the entire way, growing us up together and apart, and we look forward to witnessing His continued grace to us now and into our forever futures as husband and wife.
For anyone that knows me well, they know I am not one of those girls who had been planning her wedding for a long time. In fact, walking into my first meeting with Big Events Wedding
, I really didn’t know the style I wanted our wedding to exhibit. However, as time progressed and we started to narrow down the decor and details I liked or did not like, I came to find that I loved more of a classic, elegant look, but I also wanted to have some sort of a lighthearted, whimsical feel since Travis and I were both fresh out of college. Therefore, for colors, I picked mostly neutral colors and incorporated light lavender and dark purple as accent colors. I chose those a) because they went beautifully with the “silver bells” bridesmaids’ dresses and b) because two-thirds of our wedding party and guests were beloved TCU Horned Frog fans. Since the colors were more traditional and simple, we decided to add a touch of whimsical decor to the elegant feel by incorporating soft votive candles, twinkle lighting, swooping drapery, lush greenery table runners, and tall, blooming flower arrangements as center pieces. All of this beautiful decor was then designed and executed by the incredibly creative and exceptionally talented team at Big Events Wedding
who made all of our ideas and dreams become a reality on our wedding day.
