I loved getting spend the day with this sweet couple. Every detail had sentimental value such as the two different churches they chose to incorporate into their day as well as the leis that the mothers wore because Hawaii is a special place for RG's mom. These two are so sweet and I'm so excited for their marriage!

How did you meet?
We met in Macon, GA at a Bible Study Group through First Presbyterian Church. I remember going home that night and telling my mom and a friend about the tall, handsome pecan farmer I met! I didn't think he would actually reciprocate my feelings and ask me out on a date!
How did he propose?
RG and I love to mountain bike together. We planned to go biking in Hawkinsville (where he lives) one afternoon in October. I met him at his house to get all of our gear together and we drove out to "The Farm" (family-owned pecan orchard). Once we started our ride, RG suggested we cut through the orchard to reach a hill across the way. To my surprise, there was a picnic blanket under the pecan trees in the middle of the orchard. The blanket was FULL of food and flowers. I said "It looks like someone is having a picnic!" He said we should check it out. We got off our bikes and walked over; he said "What's that in the middle?" It was a ring! I said "Are WE having a picnic?!" RG said yes and got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes! And gave him a hug. Then we enjoyed the picnic feast he had prepared - it was delicious!
What are you looking forward to most about being married?
I look forward to being a helpmate and companion to RG as we make a home together and pursue what God has planned for our family. (Cutting out the hour-long commute will be a huge bonus too!)
