Curtis and Elizabeth met their freshmen year of high school at LCC. She noticed him the first day of class! They quickly became friends and started to date the summer after freshmen year. They dated all through high school and graduated together. Four years later, he proposed :) And now, six years later they are getting married and spending the rest of their lives together!
This is their proposal story as told by Elizabeth: June 13, 2015 Curtis and were on camping trip at Indian Lake State Park with some friends. It was getting dark and it was rainy. Curtis kept insisting we go walk on the beach. I, being difficult, whined and complained about getting wet and being tired. Curtis had this towel with him that I thought was weird, but he said it was to keep us dry in the rain. When we got to the beach we sat under a shelter. Curtis uncover a box that was under that towel and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Again, me being difficult, I asked if he asked my dad and if he was serious?! He, of course, said yes, and so, of course, I said yes (and cried my eyes out)! He had one of our friends taking pictures the whole time.
Elizabeth had a classic look with a gorgeous satin dress with stunning beaded details and a plunging back. The icing on her already amazing dress is the POCKETS! I LOVE dresses with pockets!! Elizabeth wore her hair up and carried a beautiful bouquet of fall colored flowers. Curtis gave Elizabeth a sweet bracelet to complete her look.
Elizabeth's mother Janet passed away a few months before the wedding. Even though she could not be with Elizabeth here on Earth for this day, her memory was abundant in the hearts of her loved ones. As an outward symbol of her memory this beautiful image of her joined us throughout the day.
Curtis wore a gray suit, white vest and a red tie. Elizabeth gave him a watch to complete his look for the day.
