We met at Appalachian State in 2016 (Go 'Neers!) through mutual friends. While I (Bethany) was in graduate school, Brian became one of my very best friends. Together we would run, hike, cook, and he would fix my many car issues as they came up. After being "just friends" for over 2 years something big changed. That big thing was that Brian got a dog. So of course I started hanging around a lot more, just me and him, and then boom! He asked me on a date and the rest (almost 5 years later) is history. You might even say it was written in the Starnes. We are so blessed to have found each other, be in looove, and have people that we love and are so excited to celebrate with! We appreciate everyone who is making the trip to come and celebrate us-we cannot wait!
