Our Story

Welcome to our wedding website. We have postponed our wedding to what will hopefully be a safer time to be together.
We can't wait to celebrate our special day with you. We've created this website as a way to share all of the important wedding details with you. Thank you for your ongoing love and support. We are looking forward to dancing the night away with all our favorite people!

Our love story began in Starkville, MS in the summer of 2017. We were neighbors while we were in graduate school at Mississippi State. We met in the courtyard of our apartment building and discovered we had both adopted our dogs, Percy and Maggie, from the West Point Clay County Animal Shelter. That night, we went to The Bin for Taco Tuesday with our neighbors, Kayla, Nick and Jamel and our dogs. Percy and Maggie quickly became best friends and so did we. Gradually our friendship grew into more, and we began dating in February 2018. Luckily we both accepted jobs in Memphis and moved together after completing our masters degrees in August 2018. We had a romantic surprise proposal with the help of Percy and Maggie on July 27, 2019 at Riverside Park on the banks of the Mississippi.

We enjoy going to local places in Memphis, especially places where we can take our dogs. Our favorite place is the Memphis Zoo. We recently bought our first house and have been busy decorating and adulting!

Everyone who knows us knows that our dogs are our world. After all, they did bring us together!
