THE LOVE STORY
We met at a mutual friend’s house, started talking the next day and have been inseparable ever since. Started officially dating on November 2, 2015! He was brave enough to stick around while I went through and graduated from an LVN and RN program. We planned to surprise our families the night of my RN graduation on December 6th, 2020 with our engagement. Although we didn’t have a traditional proposal, the reactions from our families that night was far more rewarding! We had the most memorable day on February 6th, 2021 surrounded by our dearest friends and family. Unfortunately, there were many that couldn’t attend but were felt there in spirit!
WWM: Tell me about your wedding. What was something that was personal that you included or had in your wedding (could be an item or something y’all did, anything that stuck out to you).
Kim: Neither one of us have little girls in our family to choose a flower girl. So, my brother was nominated to be our flower guy! He surprised us both the night of rehearsal that he planned to wear a Barney costume while walking down the aisle. Embarrassing as it is… Barney was my favorite as a little girl and he wanted to do someone memorable and special for me to always remember! We also arranged for lodging there at the venue site so family and close friends could be there with us before and after the wedding to make the whole weekend a special event!
WWM: What is your biggest tip for future brides?
Kim: Allow other people to help you plan, decorate, and coordinate as much as possible! After the wedding ceremony, prior to the countless hugs and tears shared by everyone attending. Take a few minutes with your new husband to let everything soak in. There is so much time spent planning, coordinating and pleasing others. The whole event flies by and special moments like that are easily missed.
