How did you two meet?
Parker: "We met at Lexie’s sorority formal, but we weren’t each other’s dates. I went with a good friend of mine, and she got set up with one of my fraternity brothers, so we all ended up hanging out all night at the formal. I remember realizing how beautiful she was in her red dress, and I was upset when she went home after the formal instead of hanging out with the group longer. Earlier in the night we had added each other on social media, so we were able to keep communicating and haven’t stopped since."
Lexie: "I met Parker at my sorority’s formal! I was set up with one of his fraternity brothers, and he was the date for one of my sorority sisters. We all ended up riding to formal together, and we immediately hit it off. After formal was over, our group was going back to his fraternity house to hang out, and I decided to go home because I had a big test the following week. Somewhere along the way, we had added each other on Snapchat and just kept talking. I told my mom the next day that I bonded with an aerospace engineer-- little did I know I would be marrying him almost three years later!"
What are some things yall like to do together?
Parker: "We love going to Disney World, golf tournaments, eating good food and just being with each other!"
Lexie: "Parker has a knack for being entertaining even in the most boring of places so it really doesn’t matter what we are doing! He is always up for an adventure, so I am excited to get to experience life with him!"
How and when did Parker propose?
Lexie: "Parker proposed on November 2, 2018! He started work in Orlando during the summer, so he was coming back a lot of weekends for football games. He told me that it would happen before the end of the year, so honestly every time he visited I thought it was going to be the weekend, haha! He really surprised me with how much thought and detail he put into the proposal. He and his mom came up to Auburn on Thursday, and I had no idea they were there. He was telling me lies all along to make me believe that he was still in Orlando, and he even called me to tell me he was going to have to fly up on Saturday before the game so that he could watch his sister cheer at her last football game. Some of my friends were supposed to be coming in to town that weekend too, and he had them tell me they couldn’t come anymore to throw me off. My sister was also in on the scheming, and they came up with a plan for Maddie and me to have Christmas card pictures taken in Auburn on Friday afternoon. I thought this was kind of weird at first, but went with it because my mom really wanted them done. When there was no evidence of a proposal happening at the first place we went for pictures, I really didn’t think it was going to happen. At the second stop, we walked around a corner, and I saw him standing in a gazebo on a pond at Town Creek Park. He had strung the gazebo in string lights and had candles lining the walk way. He asked and I said 'yes!' We went to dinner after the proposal, then when we got back to my apartment he had arranged for our friends and family to be there to celebrate us!"
