Wedding Date

Saturday, October 28, 2017


Our love had can not be measured in time! Our first date was May 13, 2015 and Ben proposed September 12, 2015.

We met like most modern day couples it seems, via The second date he stole my heart by taking me storm chasing (which I am a huge storm buff). I knew I trusted him doing this, he is the Fire Chief of his town and wasn't going to ever put us in harms way. Our main goal from day one was open communication, we were always talking about the next step, no matter what step that may be.

My family is out of state and his family welcomed me with open arms from the start. My best friends gladly welcomed him, as well–they are an extension of me.

The week of the proposal my dad called and slipped that Ben was headed to Wisconsin that weekend to ask my parents for my hand. It was a crazy few days of putting the little secret together, and even though I now had an idea, it was still just as special on Sept 12 when he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.

We now have a great story that my dad let the cat out of the bag and it still was perfect! We can't wait to share our day with our friends and family!
