The Proposal: Being the horse- and rodeo-loving people that we are, we were going to a rodeo on April Fool’s day. But first at my mom’s house, Camp stops the car and asks me if I want to see my horses before we leave. He had hidden the ring in one of his boots in the car, and I was just oblivious to the entire thing until he was kneeling down to propose! Before he asked me to marry him, he said, “Girl, I have to tell you something. I’ve been fooling you. We aren’t going to the rodeo because I have a pretty important question I need to ask you!”

Favorite Moments: During our first look we exchanged letters, and Camp surprised me a sign with a Bible verse on it from Habakkuk 3:17-18, and in the letter he said that he wanted that to be the definition of our marriage.

During the ceremony, Camp, his dad, and our pastor came in to a song called “Compass” by The Hedgerow Folk.  Some of our best friends wrote that song and sang it at our wedding. Our first dance was to “Midnight Train to Georgia.” This was so fun to dance to as newlyweds because we moved to Georgia after our wedding, and the lyrics really tell our story so perfectly!

Favorite Details: Camp is working on his PhD in crop and soil science and we both are huge Auburn fans (War Eagle!), so for the groom’s cake, Aubie was carrying a backpack sprayer spraying in corn and soybeans. Our venue was located on a beautiful family farm, and the backdrop of our ceremony was one of their cultivated fields. We served Southern classics like fried chicken (of course!), red beans and rice, turnip greens, cornbread and BLT canapes as an appetizer.
