Our Love Story

from the Brides point of view

I met Garett briefly during one summer. I knew he wasn't from Kentucky and was just traveling through. But, that didn't stop me from getting to know him! As time went on we developed a deep friendship and talked just about everyday. I then soon realized that even though we were close, it couldn't go any further than friendship and I took a step back. Months went by and I would remeber all of our conversations and how I always had him to turn to when I was having a bad day or didn't know what to do about something. So after some advice some my friends, and a sermon at church, I put my big girl pants on and decided to reach out to him. After some time went by he had told me he was thinking about transfering and of course I had to reccommend Cumberlands because it was an AMAZING college, after some convincing he decided to check it out. We stayed in touch before he enrolled and really started to grow our friendship into something more. Once he was enrolled we spent most of our time outside of class together and I realized that what we had was something more than what I realized and I was falling hard. We got together and we have been together since then, and I haven't looked back. I'm so excited to marry him because he truly is the man for me!

Our Love Story

From the Groom's Point of View

Me and my buddy Nick went on a golf trip one summer, and on my way back I briefly met Kyla. Over time we developed somewhat of a relationship, which didn't really amount to anything the first time. Shortly after this I found myself getting ready to transfer schools. While relaying my options, one night when I was out to eat with my buddies, I got a text from lone behold Kyla. I gave her the time of day and decided to answer. After some convincing on Kyla's end I found myself in my truck, on my way to Kentucky to visit her school. After the visit I realized I liked the school and maybe a certain someone as well. In the months before my enrollment we stayed in contact and our relationship grew. Over the semester I really got to know her and started falling in love even more. We have been together ever since, and I can't imagine it any other way. I can't wait to make her my wife!
