Engaged: Sarah and David

Meet Sarah and David!
This lovely couple will be saying their vows this coming June! We have lots of fun projects in the works for their wedding, so stay tuned!

How did the two of you meet and how long have you been together?
We first met in our chemistry class we were taking at OTC. David had just moved up from Arkansas, and I (Sarah) had just moved up from Louisiana {hints the Arkansas vs LSU rivalry}. It sounds cliché to have met in chemistry class, but that’s where it all happened. Now we have been together going on 5 years.

When did you know it was the real thing?
When we realized that we didn’t want to live life without each other. There is a point in a relationship that you “just know” it’s the person you are supposed to spend the rest of your life with and after you have that moment it just seems like all the pieces fit together.

Tell us about one of your favorite dates!
Our favorite date, well that’s a tough one! There have been so many in the past 5 years. I don’t think we have a favorite date, but we definitely share favorite memories. Times like getting together with David’s family and getting to know and love David’s grandfather “Papa”. Other times would be all the hilarious road trips we have taken to see my (Sarah) family down in Louisiana where David got to meet and spend time with my deep, southern family, all the while watching his eyes water from the spicy cajun food (which he now loves!). Another time we both love and hold dear to our hearts was when we would take our dogs, Chloe and Dozer, out to David’s families’ cabin in Arkansas where there were no distractions from the hustle and bustle of life and where we could just relax, unwind, get lost, and enjoy our little family out in the middle of nowhere.

Was the proposal a surprise? How did it happen?
It was the best surprise ever! There’s a video floating around of the event, too! We were on a ski trip in Colorado with David’s family for spring break. We were all getting ready that next morning for our first ski day when there was a knock at the door. Since everyone insisted I answer the door, I got up and opened the door to see my daddy standing there (who flew all the way from Louisiana to Colorado to spend this moment with me). I was shocked and immediately started bawling because it had been so long since I had seen him and there he was just standing in front of me! After repeatedly hugging and questioning my dad as to why he was there (which he never gave me a straight answer in the moment) I turned around to see David on one knee holding a ring and asking me if I would marry him! It should be noted that David was on his knee for a while and I even looked back at him and his family repeatedly before it registered what was going on and why he was on kneeling on the floor! It was so special to share this moment with his family and especially my Dad who flew in for one day to be there for when it happened.  

How do you envision your wedding day?
I envision it being one of the happiest days of our lives. We can’t wait to celebrate with our family and friends and for it to be an unforgettable wedding. I have no doubts that with the help from our moms and Abby that it will go off without a hitch. So thankful to have Abby who has been there every step of the way with the planning and preparation of everything with the wedding. She always keeps me on track and focused with what needs to be done….and maybe just reminds a few more times when I forget to do things :). June 21st can’t come soon enough!

Sarah, what are you most looking forward to on your big day?
I am looking forward to putting on my wedding dress and for David to see me for the first time! I am going to attempt NOT to cry going down the aisle, but it will most likely happen. I know he will look so handsome in his suit and I cannot wait to share that moment with him as we stand there in front of everyone and promise our commitment to each other. I am so lucky God placed such a wonderful man in my life and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him. Having our family and friends there to witness is a huge deal, especially since most are traveling many miles to make it there that day. I cannot wait to marry my best friend and celebrate with everyone after!

David, what are you most looking forward to on the big day?
I’m looking forward to celebrating with family and friends and to the beginning of Sarah and I life’s together. I can’t wait to be surrounded by our loved one’s who have come from all over to share this special moment with us. I CANNOT even imagine how perfect Sarah is going to look (not that she doesn’t look perfect already) as she walks down the aisle. I am looking forward to making the commitment to protect, honor, and cherish her for the rest of my life. Most of all I am looking forward to sharing my last name and growing old with the most amazing person God has blessed me with. 

Sarah, I love you, but GO RAZORBACKS!! Wooooo Pig Sooie!

What are we both looking forward to?
ALL OF THE ABOVE. Only God knows what the future holds and what’s planned for us. All we know is that we are in this together and we look forward to sharing all that this life has to offer with each other.
