Rob and I met through mutual friends. Jessica was my sorority sister and also his boss at a country club. Rob had been begging her to set him up with one of her single friends and she responded by telling him the only one that could handle you is Lisa. We all met with some friends at Fry Street Tavern in Denton, TX. He says love at first sight, I thought he was a punk. We’ve been together for five and a half years and counting. We took our first picture the night we met and it’s still the background on my phone.
We decided to go on a camping trip. I had been camping before but not REAL camping. I had never been to the back country of some mountain with a 15-20 lbs backpack carrying everything I needed for survival. Rob is an Eagle Scout. Needless to say he had everything under control. So we decided to go to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park and hike to the top of the peak (the tallest peak in Texas). All my friends at work said this would be the weekend he would propose. I thought differently. I thought it was just another weekend of fun getaways. Basically the whole 3 days we were out in the woods he was convincing me it wouldn’t happen this weekend or for a long time. I was sore and just getting grumpy at that point. Day 3 we hiked to the peak and again he was talking about it the entire way up. I’m like stop, I get it… We get to the top and I go stand by the summit sign while he gets the camera ready to take a picture. There is a girl already up there to take our picture (unplanned and she had no idea). Rob hands her the camera, walks over to me, gets on one knee and asks me to marry him. We basically ran the way back down because we were so excited.
Obviously, the wedding went by very fast. I am not one to love all the attention on me and my husband is the same. However, we both have large families and were both in fraternities/sororities so a big wedding was inevitable. Getting everything organized for the big day didn’t seem like it was all that bad. On the Day of, I had realized I had forgotten a few things. Luckily, they were small things that were easily fixable. Such as the chair covers. I never thought I would hate chair covers so much. They made the room look beautiful but they were a (insert bad word here) to put on.
Getting ready with all the girls was fun. Especially with Mimosas. 🙂 Taking pictures was even better. My husband and I never take that many pictures and when we do they are not the best so this was truly a treat. Same with my Father. We are a camera-shy family. Luckily my photographer gave us helpful tips on what to do. Let’s face it. We needed the help. Adria was very patient with us but also knew things were time sensitive and gave us nudges when they were necessary.
We loved our venue. They were very laid back and calm right from the start. They offered everything we needed and made it easy to enjoy. They had a plan and I loved that. I got to eat. Most brides that I have met say they didn’t get to eat at their wedding but the venue had a plate already waiting for us. Literally everything else was to perfection. The only thing that would have made it better was if my dress had pockets. 🙂
