Oh what a feeling! Phillip and I got engaged on December 2nd, 2015. That sweet precious moment had us both weak at the knees. It was truly wonderful. We spent the rest of our vacation on exciting adventures, lots of amazing food, and toying around with wedding ideas while enjoying a cup of coffee on the balcony. Obviously first things first (because you know everyone is going to ask) we set a date.
The date was meant to be. There are sometimes coincidences that happen, that you know had to be divine. Phillip and I both are truly blessed to have amazing role models to look up to. Both of our parents have shown us the strength in their love and commitment for one another. Phillips parents Angie and Layne were married on June 12th and my parents were married on June 11th. How perfect for June 13th to fall on a Saturday of that upcoming year. There were no questions asked — this was the date! It was the perfect symbolism of following in our parents foot steps.
We’ve also joked that no one has an excuse to miss an anniversary! June 11th, 12th, and 13th!
Once the date was set and we arrived back home it was time to call vendors and get the ball rolling!
I always love to hear the special details behind decisions made for peoples weddings and I hope you have enjoyed this one of ours!
