How It Started

Parker County Rodeo - June 2019

We grew up down the street from each other in Hudson Oaks, Texas, and attended Weatherford High School, but we did not meet until 2019. Through mutual friends, we met at the Parker County Sheriff's Posse Rodeo in June 2019, and the rest was history. We instantly hit it off. (I mean, who would turn down a handsome cowboy who is also a firefighter?) A few weeks after the rodeo, Austin reached out via Instagram. After a month of talking on the phone and getting to know each other, we finally decided to go out on our first date. As I was living in Grapevine, Texas, we decided on Esparza's for dinner. The date consisted of nervous feelings and margaritas, but that didn't hold us back from a night filled with long conversations and laughter. So much so, the waiter stopped asking us for our order until we were finally ready to eat. We spent the rest of the evening talking, laughing, and enjoying dinner until the restaurant closed. Since that night at the rodeo, we have enjoyed four years together filled with date nights, two-steppin' in Fort Worth, endless nights cooking in the kitchen, and fun weekends away. We are thrilled to begin this new chapter of our lives and thankful for the love and support from our friends and family. We hope you are able to join us and celebrate! Love, Austin & Kelsey
