About Us

Our Story

We met Freshman year of highschool in 2001 at Homecoming. We started dating that fall; our first date was to see Monsters INC at the movie theater haha. We had a great time going through highschool together with all of the dances, sports, and summers. Justin was on the football and wrestling team in highscool, and all of my free time was spent at the dance studio. We were both very active in our youth groups in highschool too. We graduated from highschool in 2005 and later that fall we moved to Tuscaloosa to attend the University of Alabama. College was a whole new chapter for us; it was the first time we were each other's family away from home. It was so great going to Alabama football games together, walking to class together, making dinner together, studying together, and most of all making lifelong friends together that we met at The Wesley Foundation. Our 5 years living in Tuscaloosa brought much closer together, and we learned so much about ourselves and our relationship as a couple. 

After I graduated in Spring 2010 and Justin graduated in Winter 2010 we both moved back home and started our new jobs. Justin started working at an engineering firm and I started my nursing career in the Emergency Room. While we were working we saved up some money and started preparing for our life together. On June 25, 2011 Justin TOTALLY surprised me and proposed to me while I was on a family vacation at the beach. Both of our families were there and it was so wonderful! Here are some pictures of that day and also some of our engagement pictures...

In Fall 2011 we were in the middle of planning our wedding, I started a new job on a progressive surgical floor, and we decided to house hunt! We bought a wonderful house in a fantastic neighborhood! It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with a formal living/dining room, spacious kitchen, and a great laundry room. What really sold us on the house was the amazing deck in the back and the fantastic view that we have of the woods behind our house. We love living here, and we are slowly working on making it our own!

On December 31, 2011 we got married! We celebrated with our family and friends with a beautiful ceremony and a fantastic reception. The weather was so perfect and abnormally warm for December; it was wonderful. The day was such a fun experience that I will never forget, and I am so lucky to finally call Justin my husband. The day was absolutely perfect and both of us are so thankful for all of the love and support from our family and friends. Here are some pictures from our big day!

We had a fabulous honeymoon at Sandals Whitehouse, Jamaica! I can't even begin to express how beautiful it was there and how much I would live there in a heartbeat! We had a fantastic week full of nothing but relaxation; it was so nice to spend as much time together as we wanted and we didn't have to worry about being anywhere! It was a great vacation, and we definitely want to go back sometime in the future! Here are some pictures...

April 2012 we decided that it was time for us to get a puppy! Justin and I found this adorable Morkie (1/2 Maltese 1/2 Yorkie) and after finding out that she was born on the day that we got married we decided that we had to have her!  We named her Eleanor because Eleanors was our favorite place to eat at the resort on our honeymoon! She was the best birthday gift, and we love her so much! She is an energetic but sweet puppy, and we are so glad to have her!
