Tell Us Your Story love story jones crossing

Nathan and I met February 2013 at the Plainfield Buffalo Wild Wings. About a week later, we went to dinner for our first date. After dinner, he asked if I’d be okay to go with him to Toys R Us in Greenwood to pick out a birthday present for his son, Tryden, who was about to turn 4. Of course I said yes.

After that evening, we went out a few more times and instantly clicked. After being together for 6 months, I moved in.

Right before our 1 year anniversary of dating, we decided to be spontaneous and purchase a home together. (Yeah, we did things differently and took a big risk, but I’m SO happy we did!)

Our relationship continued to grow from there. Now, fast forward to Summer 2015: we were on a family vacation in Florida. Right before we were about to leave for dinner (keep in mind I was already dressed, ready to go), Nathan hands me this beautiful teal maxi dress and tells me I should put it on. So I did.

As he is finishing getting ready, I go outside to get in the truck. I’m patiently sitting there for probably 15 minutes and then Nathan calls me asking me to come down to the beach because his mom wants to do some family photos real quick since we are all dressed up. (At this point, I still have NO clue).

So we walk down to the beach and I see Nathan’s family standing there. All of a sudden, Nathan starts talking to Tryden and they start to whisper. (I still have not caught on!)

A few minutes passed and then Tryden pulls out a bracelet and says “will you be my stepmom?” And before I knew it, I look over at Nathan and he is down on one knee with a ring out asking me to be his wife.

I was so caught off caught and extremely happy. It was perfect!

Special Meaning of Your Dress, Tux, Jewelry, Shoes, etc?

Everyone said my wedding dress fit me perfectly. It was full of sparkles & diamonds. I wanted something that would stand out and I did. 🙂

Songs You Picked and Why

Nathan and I wanted to be a little different with our song choices and not so traditional. Our wedding party walked out to Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. When it was time for my dad and I to walk down, we walked out to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri but it was the Boyce Abe acoustic version.

What Made Your Wedding Day the Best Day of Your Life?

My wedding day was the best day of my life because of how special I felt and all the love Nathan & I received from everyone. The whole day just went so smoothly.

Why Did You Pick Jones Crossing?

I knew I wanted our wedding to be at Jones Crossing as soon as I seen pictures online. Once I visited the venue, I wanted it more then ever. The waterfall and Palm tree aspect just makes it so much better. The reception room is so large and roomy so everyone was able to get around without a problem.

Would You Refer Jones Crossing to Another Couple?

Yes, absolutely.
