I have to start by explaining to you my absolute favorite detail of not only this wedding, but any wedding I have done so far. The venue, The Tulsa Garden Center, held such a sweet and sentimental place in the Bride's heart as it was originally built as the home of her great-grandparents! Isn't that the sweetest thing you have ever heard! I have always known about the TGC to be a venue and garden center, but never in one million years did I imagine that a good friends great-grandparents built and lived in it!
Did you do anything especially unique that you would like to share? The history of how my family used to own the Tulsa Garden Center. My great great grandmother and grandfather Hull lived there before the Great Depression. Then had to move out because the Depression hit.
Did you have a something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue? If so, how did you incorporate them into your big day? My Something old was my great grandmothers pearls I used as a bracelet. Something new was my dress, veil, pearl earrings, etc. Something blue was in my shoes!
How did you meet? On Facebook initially. We became friends on Facebook and then realized we have so many of the same friends so we just started talking and hanging out.
How did he propose? It was the day after my graduation for my Master's in May 2013. My both of our family's were there and all our friends. We all gathered together to pray before eating and just as my grandma was about to pray, Will interrupted with, "Excuse me everybody, I just have one thing I need to say." and he got down on one knee and proposed in front of everyone!
