Before the Wedding …

How did you two meet?
We met after country concert at Mavericks in the Jacksonville Landing April 2008. We went on our first date the end of May to The Texas Roadhouse 

How did he propose?
He had planned to propose the morning we celebrated Christmas together December 18, 2010. I was so excited for him to get out of bed and walk in to the living room to see what was setting beside the tree (I got him a nice piece of luggage since he goes out of town so much). But all he wanted to do is take a shower and get ready so of course I thought he was trying to make me quit acting so giddy, but really he was planning the whole time how he was going to propose. At the point he finally met me out in the living room I was mad and decided I was going to make him wait and make breakfast! Haha. We finally opened gifts and I decided to walk next door to our neighbor’s house and deliver homemade goodies. When I opened the door into our foyer area he was there waiting on me with a look on his face like something bad just happened! I asked him what was wrong and he said nothing I have something for you and handed me a white box. I shook the box and the jewelry moved so I thought he had bought me another necklace. I thought to myself, well I guess he’s not proposing!! To my surprise when I opened it the ring was laying off to the side and I looked at him as he asked me to marry him

How did you decide on your color scheme, flowers, and cake?
I’ve always liked turquoise and decided to pair it with black and yellow flowers seemed to accent well . Jason was thrilled I didn’t make him wear any girly colors especially pink! The cake was easy after going to bridal shows and always tasting Publix super moist delicious cake! The flavor however was a surprise choice on both our parts. We loved the almond cream with vanilla custard. The grooms cake was also easy choice. It had to be a deer head cake. Jason said it would be the only thing in the wedding that 100% represented him! We just had to find someone talented enough to make it. Sugar Rush Confections did a fantastic job and exceeded our expectations.

After the Wedding …

Where did you go for your honeymoon? Sandals La Toc St. Lucia

If you could give yourself any advice prior to the wedding, what would it be?

It will all work out in the end but all the hard work was worth it and have no doubts!!
