Engaged: Sarah and Alec

Introducing the lovely soon to be Alec and Sarah Carroll! Happy wedding week to these two as we are preparing for their ceremony at the Stone Chapel on Drury University's campus followed by a gorgeous tent reception at Sarah's family home.

How did the two of you meet and how long have you been together? 
Alec and I met during our first year of veterinary medical school, but we didn't start dating until our second year.  We started getting to know one another better during the Cardinals postseason 2012.  
After watching numerous Cardinals games with mutual friends, Alec finally took me on our first date to a cattle sale.  It was very romantic. ;)  Let’s be honest…it was stinky, but we had a great time together.
By spring we both knew we had fallen in love and found a perfect match.  I already knew, but Alec's decision was solidified at the spring cattleman's banquet.  We discovered that we made a great team after I helped him secure the hay bales he bid on at the silent auction.  He won his hay, and I won his heart. ;)

Was the proposal a surprise? How did it happen? 
I would love to say the proposal was truly a surprise, but my father was so excited when Alec asked for my hand in marriage that dad called to congratulate me.   Alec then asked me a couple days later.  He did so in true Alec fashion and drove me to a restaurant we frequented quite a bit in the beginning of our relationship.  He wanted the moment to be private so he asked me right before we went inside.  He actually did surprise me because I didn’t expect him to ask that night since my father had just called me a couple days before.

How do you envision your wedding day?
  We are envisioning a beautiful spring day surrounded by love, family, and friends.  Our ceremony will be in a beautiful old chapel, and our reception will be at home in the backyard.  It is very special to have our wedding in a place that means so much to us.

Sarah, what are you most looking forward to on your big day? 
I’m most looking forward to seeing Alec’s face when I walk down the aisle.
