How did you two meet?
(Davis’s point of view): I was walking through the hallways of Vestavia Hills High School when a girl, who I had never seen before, passed by me and caught my eye. I wish I could put into words the way I felt when I first saw her. My only thoughts were “Wow, I am going to marry her.” Shortly after that encounter, Chandler and I began to spend time together. I unfortunately was 45 minutes late to our first date, but luckily, the first impression must not have been too bad considering we are finally married!
Davis proposed to me at a city overlook that both of us loved to visit when we went on dates. Davis told me we were going out to a nice dinner downtown. I should have known it was coming because he kept nervously fidgeting with the radio every few minutes. It had rained on and off all day, but God was good! For the 30 minutes that Davis and I stood at the overlook, a beautiful, foggy mist covered the area–and no rain! It was absolutely perfect.
Favorite Wedding Moment
My favorite moment of the entire day was walking down the aisle to Davis. I had been an excited, nervous wreck all morning, and so had he. We did a first look, which was absolutely perfect, but I still had excited nerves. As I stood behind the closed doors that were about to open for the ceremony, I remember telling my Dad that it was the calmest I felt all day. It was the best feeling.
Favorite Wedding Details
If I had to pick, my favorite wedding detail has to be the florals. It was a super hot day in late June, but the flowers held up and lasted all night. I adored my bouquet and love to look back and see it “pop” in pictures. It was a dream come true to see my floral pinterest board come to life.
