Wedding Date on Aug 4, 2018

Hearing the beginning of these two’s love story is a lot like opening the pages of a crisp new Nicholas Sparks book and reading about a sweet southern romance..It involves two naturally good looking people (both totally unaware of how gorgeous they are) meeting in a crowded place with rain falling down around them. One look, and they were hooked. Ol’ Nicky couldn’t have written it better himself, in my opinion. You see, Michelle and Evan first met her sophomore year of college at Auburn. They both attended a spring break mission trip in Port St. Jo, Florida. The last night of the trip, rain caused the evening worship to be moved into a crowded tent. As Evan led the crowd to worship Jesus, Michelle was right there! In fact, she told me that ” I was so close that I was honestly worried my voice might be picked up by the mic. The next day I felt like I should introduce myself since he had essentially serenaded me face-to- face the night before. We had a short conversation and that was it.” They didn’t speak again for almost a year, but they never forgot about each other. (Again–straight out of a romance novel!) The next year they went back to the same mission trip and were placed on a construction team together. While working, Michelle overheard Evan telling the story of his favorite Amplify memory: the night when it started raining and everyone had to cram into the tent. He mentioned that there was a girl standing inches from his face and that she introduced herself to him the next day. Michelle can remember turning to a friend and saying “Wait. That was me! I was that girl!” and going over and re-introducing herself. A camp crush began- on both sides- and a month later Evan asked Michelle on a date. Since then, they’ve been together through a lot–long distances, multiple apartments and cities, new jobs…all along, they knew that the Lord had blessed their relationship.
