"Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky."
We had been dating for three years when Brian decided to be traditional and get my dad’s blessing before asking for my hand in marriage. What I didn’t know was while I was on a work trip to Florida with my mom, Brian and my dad had secretly planned to fly out to Florida to turn our work trip into a mini-vacation to Pensacola.
If you know Brian and me, you know that we do everything together and are practically joined at the hip most days. I was in total shock when I got the call that I needed to head to the airport to pick them up because they had just landed (and were hungry, of course)!
Three magical days went by where we enjoyed a little paradise and some much-needed rest. It was the last night we were there and Brian offered to take me for a walk on the beach (it’s one of my favorite things to do and there was a full moon)!
We started walking towards the side of the beach that had a long, fish pier and he asked if I wanted to check out the pier to see what the locals were catching while night fishing. So we made our way to the pier.
We weren’t allowed on the pier unfortunately because I wasn’t wearing shoes (who likes wearing shoes while walking on the beach?) so I offered to just turn back to head back to the hotel but Brian was persistent and convinced me to get a pair of shoes at the local bait shop (a size too small that I refuse to get rid of even to this day).
We make our way to the entrance of the pier and finally get to pay and get in. We walk the entire length of the pier, enjoying the night just watching people catch fish. Unfortunately, it smelled because we were standing right next to a dead fish so I asked if we could head back to the hotel.
I turned my back to get a bit of fresh air (away from the stench) and as I turned back around, Brian was holding a ring and smiling at me. I remember every detail of that day down to the exact words he said. “Would you like to put this on?” It didn’t sink in with Brian that he had proposed next to the dead fish until after the tears, the smiles, the hugs, and kisses were done.
The little details (even the gross ones) show how every love story is truly one of a kind. We want to make sure that we capture that uniqueness through photographs and films to pass down for generations.
Not even sure where to begin with this, every time we think about it the song "I've been everywhere man" comes to mind. Between the two of us we have been to 33 different states and 2 different countries.
Our favorites are Italy, Florida and Colorado to go to!
We are so thankful to have both grown up with large agriculture backgrounds. Both showing mainly cattle, we still have a small red angus cattle herd and I can promise you there is nothing more heart warming than tending to livestock and watching the babies grow.
We actually have three fur babies that are our entire world. Pictured here is Katie, the true queen of the house. Sadly, we lost our sweet girl this past February. In total now we have two mini Australian shepherds (Sophie + Addie) and one cat (Louie).
Our most favorite thing in the world to talk about is FOOD! We love trying all the new things and creating recipes of our own.
We are actually in the process of creating our own recipe book that has recipes we've created, foods we love and family recipes that have been passed down.
