How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of one another?
We actually are not sure the exact moment when we met! Our friend groups interacted a lot and finally we ended up talking alone and hit it off! I loved that Bobby is a farmer and wore boots all the time (lol) and he loved that I was outgoing and social (much did I have him fooled at the time!).
Tell us a funny story relating to your wedding day or relationship!
Our first date was dove hunting and I showed up to Bobby’s house at 5am by myself! Which is completely outside my character but I decided to give it a shot! We went dove hunting and floating down the river and had a 13 hour first date!
Describe a hurdle you had to overcome in your relationship or during your wedding planning.
Covid made wedding planning more difficult in a number of ways, but Bobby like he always does, put a positive spin on it. Our biggest concern was being able to have a wedding with the people we loved, so as long as we got to do that and at the end of the day and be married to each other, we were happy. All of the small details surrounding the wedding didn’t seem like as big of a deal.
What part of your wedding day was/is most important to you?
It was most important that we were intentional about the entire feeling of the day. We wanted to let people in on how excited we were and are to be married. We ultimately were most excited that we had found our soulmates and that was the most important piece. While the details were important, it wasn’t the main event. We wanted people to feel relaxed and welcome at the wedding. We wanted to be a joy-filled event from the start to finish of the day.
What is the best thing you’ve learned from one another?
I think that the biggest thing I have learned from Bobby is to step back and look at the big picture. In doing so, you often realize that the small problem that you were worried and stressed about doesn’t seem like such a big deal when you aren’t as close to it.
One of the biggest things that Bobby has learned from me is how to relax and just breathe for a minute. Sometimes the most important thing that you can do in the moment is to just hang out and be present.
Any special ways you incorporated your family or family history into your wedding day?
We wanted to do something unique for our unity ceremony, so we decided to put our own spin on the traditional mixing of sand. We both gathered sand from our individual homes and used that to mix during the ceremony. My dad even wrote a sweet note to Bobby about the sand. Within it, he wrote how he took special time to pick out the best soil on his land, and sifted it through so it was like flour. He took the best parts of it, just like he and my mom tried to take the best parts of themselves when raising me. It was the sweetest thing! Bobby and I read the letter right after the ceremony and we were both in tears!
What is your favorite thing about each other?
We are complete opposites in the best way! Bobby LOVES making jokes and being the center of attention, while I would much prefer to be a fly on the wall. He always knows how to make everything fun and can make me laugh harder than I ever have. He is seriously the most hard working person I have ever met. His favorite thing about me is how I can read him and see and assess what he needs. He likes that he can slow down when we are together.
What was your favorite part about planning your wedding?
Getting to put our own personal spin on everything!
If you had one piece of advice for other couples, what would it be?
Remember, at the end of the day you will have a partner for life and that is seriously the best thing ever! The details are important and your wedding should look like what you want it to, but on the day of soak it in! Take a few minutes right after the ceremony alone with just the two of you and really soak in the goodness of being married. It’s so fun!
What is the most honest thing you can say about love?
Love is God’s greatest commandment and by far His best gift he has ever given us. Love is all consuming and the most wonderful thing we have on this side of heaven.
