Attention: It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our big wedding to 2021 due to covid-19. We want to move forward in a way that is the safest for our friends and family. While we still plan on celebrating our original date with a small number of family and friends, we look forward to celebrating with everyone next year! We hope you can be there.

We’re Getting Married!

Our Story

 

Once upon a time in Abilene, a random guy blocked a random girl's trash can basketball shot in the library. They had only just met since the girl had just moved to town and a mutual friend of theirs (thanks Rachel) had invited them, and a few others, together to study. After a full day of studying, the group of friends went to grab dinner. She got his number and they haven't stopped talking since.

Fast forward to May 18, 2019 and they are on their way to a friend's wedding in Dallas, TX when the worst storm in the past ten years hits the city. They couldn't see five feet in front of them, let alone drive past the torrential sheets of rain and hail that were pummeling down. So they pulled over in a parking lot, hoping to wait out the rain. The guy has this crazy idea to go out and dance in the rain. He looks at her and asks if she's willing to join him, and she agrees. So off they go, running through the rainstorm and dancing around in the rain. As they make it back into the car, the boy looks like he's had a brilliant idea. So he grabs her hand and asks her to a race to the lamp-post at the end of the lot. Being competitive, of course she agrees! So they run over (she wins by the way), laughing the whole way there. All of a sudden he grabs his keys and takes off an empty key ring. She's crying and says yes before he even finishes his sentence, he's ecstatic because he's been wanting to ask her to marry him for years.

They run back to the car when they suddenly hear the sounds of applause. Turns out the people from the China Wok were all watching the crazy-in-love kids dancing around and came out to celebrate. As the boy and the girl got back to their car, the rain let up a bit. This was good, because they wanted to rush home to tell their family. As they drove off, the card they were planning on giving their friends fell out of the car and got left behind in the parking lot.

What did it say?


"...and they lived happily ever after."
