Intimate Smoky Mountain Wedding

Abby and Shane’s Wedding March 27, 2019

Abby and Shane’s wedding day dawned bright and beautiful. They chose to get married at half past the hour as a symbol of growth and happiness.

From the bride:

I saw him at his work place and was intrigued and smitten. You could say I pursued him and came to his work just to see him. My friend gave his co-worker my number and his co-worker passed it to him and told him my name and that I was interested. He did not know my name but remembered my face and then reached out to me. This started the rest of our life together.

Our first date was comforting and I felt secure. My delight enhanced the longer I was near him. You would expect a sweet story, but really we just drove around in his car, listening to music. We hardly stared at each other, only taking glances, but the energy and feelings I felt were new and fascinating. A few days after our date, I still felt the pain in my cheeks from the lingering effects of smiles and the warmth and butterflies in my stomach.

The proposal… This could be in the air. Over the years, we both have, but never with full intention. We knew our fate and it was our destiny to be together. In December we found out we were pregnant and took a visit to my parents. We told them the great news and my father inquisitively asks, “This is great news; so are you two going to marry?”

We play video games and board games, most times together. Dinner and shopping is what we do on most date nights.
