Engaged: Megan and Tyler

Meet Megan and Tyler! 

This couple is seriously too much fun. I love working with them on their wedding plans for their big day this June! Mint and shades of purple are going to don their tent reception and touches of vintage details will tie it all together! Can't wait!

How did the two of you meet and how long have you been together?
My step mom is a counselor at the school Tyler works at and told him about me. He then looked me up on Facebook and asked for my number. Pretty soon we went out on our first date. I knew within the first month that there was a good possibility I would marry him. Everything was easy and just clicked.

When did you know it was the real thing?
I knew this was the real deal about 2 months into the relationship when we told each other that we loved each other. I went home with him to Colorado to meet his family shortly after that. I knew for sure after that trip.

Was the proposal a surprise? How did it happen?
I knew the proposal was coming because we had been ring shopping but I didn’t know when or how he was going to do it. I thought I would figure it out because I’m a planner and always try to figure things out. Ha! Well, I’m a huge basketball junkie and Tyler knows that. I am a teacher and so is he, so one day he was out of school and I was in school for a teacher work day. He told me he was going hunting that day and even sent me pictures from his phone which looked like he was in a tree stand. I believed him. I had just gotten back from a meeting and was in my office when my co-worker and I got called by our head coach to join him for a discussion about upcoming basketball tryouts. So I got up and was walking through the gym and there was Tyler with a basketball in his hand standing at half court. He threw the basketball to me which had written on it, “One on one for life?” I was too nervous to even read it because I knew then what was happening so I just threw the ball down and walked out to him. He got down on one knee, said a very sweet speech, and asked me to marry him. Several of my co-workers came out and applauded. I was so surprised!

Tell us about one of your favorite dates!
My favorite date was probably the date where he first kissed me. I went to his house one night and he cooked me dinner (tacos, his specialty haha). Then he asked if I wanted to do a devotional together so we read the Bible together and discussed some things. After that, he took me on a drive and showed me around his neighborhood and surrounding area. When we got back, we sat on his back deck and talked for a long time. Then he asked me to dance. It’s funny looking back now because he isn’t the hopeless romantic type. We danced at night under the stars and then we kissed. It was AWESOME.

How do you envision your wedding day?
We envision our wedding day to be a very special and memorable event. We can’t imagine celebrating our marriage with anyone other than with family and friends. 

Megan, what are you most looking forward to on your big day?
I’m looking forward to seeing Tyler’s face when I walk down the aisle. I’m also looking forward to just enjoying the celebration of marriage and how God intended marriage to be. I can’t wait to commit myself fully to Tyler.

Tyler, what are you most looking forward to on the big day?
I’m looking forward to seeing Megan walking down the aisle toward me, being escorted by her father. I’m also looking forward to the formality of committing ourselves to God and to each other. Additionally, I’m excited about the few days prior to the wedding in which I’ll get to spend quality time with friends and family, all culminating with the celebration of the ceremony and reception.
