Our Story

Brent and I met at a mutual friend's wedding. He grew up with the bride and groom in Waco, and I went to college (Eat 'Em Up Kats) with the bride. There was a little matchmaking going on, as well as a little pre-meeting online stalking (which I like to refer to as research- thank you myspace.) The wedding day came and we hit it off right away. In the picture below you can see us both taking part in our first dance together...the classic Chicken Dance!

At the time, I had just started student teaching in Houston, so the first 5 months of our relationship was long distance. Luckily, that did not stop us from frequent visits and plenty of phone calls, texts, and late night chats online. Gotta love technology! In January I moved to Waco to go to grad school. Time flew by, and of course we fell in love (mushy, I know). About a year and a half after we first met, we went on a ski trip to Colorado. One very beautiful night we stepped out onto our hotel balcony where I found this special message waiting for me in the snow:

If you can't tell, it says "Nicole, will you marry me?" So in case you were wondering, I said, "Yes!" Actually I think before that I said something like, "Is this for real?!" Then began the wedding planning journey. Lucky for me and my sanity that only lasted six months. Then on June 14, 2008 we married in Waco, TX. The ceremony was beautiful, and the reception was a BLAST! We could not have asked for anything more.

Since then we have been enjoying the many blessings God has given us. We have a home outside of Waco, two dogs, and enjoy taking vacations! We have a wonderful life and look forward to the many blessings God has in store for us!
