Khelsie and Dylan – October 16, 2020
Rustic Country Micro Wedding
It was such a gloomy day. It had been raining all day long. We were almost to our exit and we saw a car on the side of the road that had hydroplaned. Dylan immediately stopped the car and got out to help them. I was really impressed. I thought, “man, this guy is pretty great for helping these people.”
He helped as much as he could, then we proceeded on our date night! We ate at my favorite restaurant, Olive Garden. Let me tell ya, I ate like a mouse. I could barely eat anything. My stomach was turning, I had so many knot feelings in my stomach. After we ate we went to Dave & Buster’s. We had so much fun. I kicked his butt at Skee – ball. I thought he would’ve been impressed but I think he was a little embarrassed. ???? To say the least, our first date was amazing.
In May 2019 we had a weekend getaway to Brown County, IN planned. I was so excited to have a weekend getaway. We were having the best time together. Being together just made everything right in the world. While we were on the trip, Dylan started acting like something was wrong. He told me everything was fine and he was just happy to be away with me for a few days. Dylan is a very happy-go-lucky guy. He was just being really quiet and I was LITERALLY getting scared thinking he was going to break up with me. Lol. Sunday morning came and we had one last thing planned. We were going to go to a place called Copperhead Creek Gem Mine. Dylan told me that it seemed like a cool place to go. I walked over to get our spot at the Gem Mine while he was inside getting the mining bags. Dylan gave me my bag and I started to pour it out. When I poured I saw a little tiny bag. I picked it up and when I turned around he was down on one knee. My heart literally sank!! After I told him yes, I turned around and our parents were standing there watching the whole time.
Let me just tell ya, I was relieved he wasn’t breaking up with me. Best. Day. Ever!!
We decided on East Tennessee because of Covid-19. We were originally getting married in our hometown, Batesville IN. We did not want to change the wedding date and we didn’t want to wait any longer. We searched for months to find the perfect venue. We fell in love with Chapel in the Hollow the day we found it online. Our hearts were set.
We just can’t wait to be husband and wife. We can’t wait to see each other at the chapel. OH and the pictures are going to be amazing!!
I had always wanted to get married around my dads birthday. My dad and I have ALWAYS been best best buddies and I knew that would be perfect. We will be getting married October 16th and my dad’s birthday is October 18th. A wedding and a birthday celebration?? Can’t beat that! Best vacation ever!!
We love to hike. We love to see waterfalls and nature. Trying out new wineries is also our favorite.
We have a place near us called Vinoklet Winery. They have a “grill to perfect” night, so we can go and sit by the grill and grill our own food. The first time we went there we fell in love. Movie nights are our favorite. We always go to the store and get a bunch of snacks and stay home on a nice Saturday night and watch movies. We love being with family and friends. We are both just so down to earth we just love being together. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing we are always having fun.
