Ben + Kindall

How did you two meet?

Kindall: "We met at Camp McDowell in 2006. Some friends introduced us and it was a done deal since day one! I was 14, he was 16, and we never broke up once! We'll have spent ten years together on Monday, June 6."

How did Ben propose?

Kindall: "Ben proposed at the Biltmore Estate. We had hiked and toured all weekend. As we were checking out one of the best views, he proposed. We had almost been together nine years at this point, but I still didn't see it coming or expect him to propose there! We spent the rest of the day talking about our future and excitedly calling all of our families and friends. Something I'll never forget is Ben telling each person we called the story over and over again- so many of them cried! He picked the perfect place and the perfect time for us."

What are some things y'all like to do together?

Kindall: "We love to travel, hike, cook, and play with our dogs. If we can't do any of those things, you'll probably find us watching Law and Order."

Kindall-- what's one thing you admire most about Ben?

Kindall: "It's so hard to pick just one thing I admire about him! One of my favorite things is how great of a friend he is to everyone he meets. He's the type of friend that is loyal, thoughtful, kind and puts others' needs in front of his own. I think that is an important part of any relationship as well- the ability to be friends with each other."

Ben-- what's one thing you admire most about Kindall?

Ben: "The attribute I admire the most about Kindall is her ability to challenge me to be better than I was yesterday. She knows exactly what to say when I am down and celebrates my accomplishments. For me it is so important to feel like you have a partner that has your back, and Kindall tirelessly pushes for our success as individuals and as a couple."

What was each of yall's favorite part of the day?

Kindall: "I loved our whole day so much! One of my favorite parts was our first look. We were both pretty nervous about the ceremony and being in front of all of our guests. The first look gave us the opportunity to slow things down and re-focus on each other. We were both so happy we chose to do the first look! Another favorite moment was when our priest announced us for the first time. After almost ten years, it still makes me teary to think of all of the people that shaped our relationship and supported us. Finally being able to stand in front of them as a married couple was a huge moment."

Ben: "Right after we arrived at the reception and before our first dance, we had a chance to sit down, have a meal with our parents, and breathe. Our catering company had prepared plates for the six of us. The entire day was a whirlwind of pictures, laughter, and emotions and I was so thankful that we had a chance to sit down with our parents, take it all in, and eat our first meal as husband and wife."

What's next for you two?

"We are both working and living in Huntsville, Ala. Right now, we are just enjoying our time together, trying to travel as much as possible, and getting involved in different things Huntsville has to offer."

Andy + Austill {wedding}

How did you two meet, and how long did you two date?

Austill: "We met in physical theory school in Atlanta. We were in the same lab group in cadaver lab, which is how we really got to know each other. We didn't start dating until about a year into school, and we dated three years before getting engaged last September."

Do either of your remember what you thought the first time y'all saw/met each other?
Austill: "I thought he was very funny and he was always a gentleman. I really appreciated that he would always do the gross parts of cadaver lab for me because I really hated it!"

Andy: "I remember thinking she had a weird name but I loved the fact she was an Auburn fan and we could relate."

How and when did Andy propose?

Austill: "Andy proposed on September 4 while we were at the beach with a big group of our friends. Several of the girls went to run errands that morning and while we were gone, Andy set up signs that said sweet things about me down on the beach. When we got back to the house, he took me down to the beach to show me the signs. I didn't realize what was happening until he gave me a Bible with my new last name on it. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was perfect!"

Austill-- What's one of the things you admire most about Andy?

Austill: "Andy is so easy going and level headed. He never gets stressed out and is always calm, even when things are going wrong. I respect Andy a lot and know that he will always make the best and most logical decisions for our family by seeking guidance from the Lord."

Andy-- What's one of the things you admire most about Austill?

Andy: "Austill is one of the most sincere and intelligent people you will meet. She never meets a stranger and cherishes all the little things in life. She is kind and genuine and she is an auburn fan."

What are some things y'all like to do together?

Austill: "We love going to all Auburn sporting events together. We also enjoy spending time with each others families, hiking, playing with our dog Shug, playing tennis and working out. We like to try new restaurants around Birmingham when we have a weekend in town."

What was each yall's favorite part of the big day?

Austill: "Getting to spend the whole weekend with all our closest family friends in one place, having a blast on the dance floor, and finally being able to call Andy my husband!"

Andy: "My favorite part was dancing with all of our friends and family."

What's next for you two?

Austill: "We are trying to get settled in our new house and are looking forward to spending the summer together with our dog Shug and friends and family!"

Kaleb + Becca {engagement}

How long did you two date?

Becca: “We have dated for almost four years.”

How and when did Kaleb propose?

Becca: “Kaleb proposed on December 24, 2015. We were on the way to his parents’ house to eat lunch and take Christmas pictures with his family when his boss called him and asked him to check on something at the shop in the Waters. First we pull up to the chapel, he explained to me he first had to check on something there. It's pouring down rain so, we pulled up he handed me an envelope, and he jumped out and ran inside, so I opened the envelope inside was a letter he had wrote at the end of the letter it said, ‘Check behind your seat.’ There, I found another letter, and an umbrella. Inside this letter, there was a pet adoption agreement. (A little background information on this: I always joked that he would have to adopt my silver lab, Emmie, as his daughter when we got married.) Then, he had a piece of paper that said, ‘Come inside when you're ready,’ so I walked in the church went through the double doors. As soon as I opened the door, I saw Kaleb on one knee with our two dogs (Emmie and Nelli) on each side with signs around their neck that said, ‘Will you marry dad?,’ and a sign above him that said, ‘Will you marry me?’ Meanwhile, he had Thomas Rhett ‘Die a happy man’ and then Sister Hazel ‘This Kind Of Love’ playing in the church. He also had my sister and a close friend of ours hidden taking pictures.”

^This photo above was taken by Madelyn Holding! I let her get behind the camera, and she captured some genuine emotion! Love it!

What are some things y'all like to do together?

“We enjoy just being together! We love traveling, fishing and anything outdoors. Most of all we just enjoy being together, so as long as we are together, we are having fun!”

Kaleb- what's one of the things you admire most about Becca?

Kaleb: “I don't even know where to start. The first thing that caught my eye about Rebecca is her obvious outer beauty. I was amazed that she would go for me. Putting that aside, the most amazing thing about Rebecca isn't her outer beauty, it's what's inside. Her soul is the most beautiful attribute that she has. She is the sweetest and kindest woman I have ever met. She's the kind of woman that will give you the shirt off of her back if you ask her. I wouldn't be who I am today if I didn't have her by my side.”

Becca- what's one of the things you admire most about Kaleb?

Becca: “This is a really difficult question. Kaleb is an amazing man!! He is selfless, thoughtful, loving, patient, but what I admire most about him is he is a strong Christian man-- constantly encouraging me to become closer to God and a stronger Christian. Kaleb is always by my side no matter what encouraging me and helping me achieve my goals in life!! I am so blessed the Lord chose me to be Kaleb's wife."

Bryant + Molly {wedding} :: 4.2.16

How did you two meet?

We met in pharmacy school at Auburn and have dated for almost four years since February 2012.

How did Bryant propose?

Molly: "Bryant proposed on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015. After we got home from church I wanted to take my regular Sunday afternoon nap before going to his family's annual family reunion.  I had been begging him all week to have an "adult" Easter egg hunt, but he thought I was crazy and said that was just for the kids. We recently bought a house in Prattville that we are remodeling and he said we needed to go see what had been done to the house during the week before we went to the family reunion. We went and checked on the progress of the house a lot so I didn't think anything about it.  When we walked in there was a silver egg laying on the counter and he picked it up and got down on one knee and I could not hold back the tears! The ring is very special to us because the center stone was his grandmother's diamond. Everyone joked that I got my Easter egg hunt and found the "golden egg". 

Bryant-- what's one of the things you admire about Molly?
Bryant: "One of the things I admire most about Molly is her personable and kind personality based upon deep Christian principles."
Molly-- what's one of the things you admire most about Bryant?
Molly: "Bryant has the most selfless and giving heart of anyone I know! One example is when he donated stem cells to a complete stranger through Be The Match. I sat by his side during the long process (approximately 6 hours) and watched how painful and uncomfortable it was and when it was finished he said "I would do it again tomorrow to save another life." He performs small acts of kindness on a daily basis like paying for a group of police officer's lunch when we are on a lunch date. His giving heart is so attractive! 
What was each of yall's favorite part of the day?
Molly: "Every part of the day was a painterly perfect and special in it's on way, but my favorite part was saying our vows to one another and establishing those words as the foundation of our marriage."
Bryant: "My anticipation as I was waiting for our first look. My heart was racing knowing I was about to see my bride!"
What's next for you two?
Molly: "We will be living in Prattville. Bryant is currently working as a pharmacist for Brown Drug Co. in Selma and after graduation in May, Molly will begin working as a pharmacist for CVS."

Jonathan + Brooke {wedding} :: 3.19.16

How did you two meet, and how long did you two date?

Brooke: “Jonathan and I actually met through my maid of honor, Amy Masingill. Amy is my best friend from high school and after graduation we ended up at two different schools– I went to Alabama and she went to Auburn. I spent a lot of time visiting Amy in Auburn during college. The summer after my freshman year, our paths crossed with Jonathan’s, and he and I have been together ever since!”


How and when did Jonathan propose?

Brooke: “Jonathan proposed on March 15, 2015. I was living in Atlanta and he was living in Birmingham at the time. We had both come to Montgomery for the weekend. I had an engagement party and he wanted to hunt on his family’s land. I had told him I’d go for a walk with him after he went turkey hunting that morning which is something we did often in Montgomery on their land. During our walk, he pulled me aside in front of his family’s 19th century homestead and had a pedestal set up with his hunting cameras surrounding it to get pictures of the proposal! I was still clueless until he actually got on one knee and I saw the ring! He also had brunch set up with my entire family afterwards. It was the best surprise of my life!”

Brooke– what’s one of the things you admire most about Jonathan?

Brooke: “Only choosing one thing I admire about Jonathan is difficult for me. Jonathan is thoughtful, loving, and makes me laugh every single day. One of my favorite things about Jonathan, though, is that he is a strong leader. He leads in everything he does, sometimes without even realizing it, and I love and appreciate how he has already started to lead our little family!”

Jonathan– what’s one of the things you admire most about Brooke?

Jonathan: “My favorite thing about Brooke is how strong of a Christian Woman she is. She is constantly pushing me to become better, closer, and stronger to God and the importance cannot be measured in our relationship. She is definitely a Godly Woman and I love and adore that about her.”

What was each yall’s favorite part of the big day?

Brooke: “My favorite part of our wedding day was seeing Jonathan for the first time. There had been so much anticipation leading up to that moment and I was so excited for him to see my dress and talk to him about his gift! I also can’t go without mentioning how much I LOVED having all of our friends and families in the same place at the same time and seeing them all enjoying themselves! It’s rare to have so many loved ones in the same room all at once and it meant so much to us to have everyone there to help celebrate and support us!”

Jonathan: “My favorite part was obviously seeing Brooke for the first time. There had been so much build up for the past one year and four days that it was absolutely surreal to see my wife for the first time. She looked absolutely stunning and was just so unbelievably happy. It was a special moment for me that I will never forget.”


What’s next for you two?

Brooke: “Jonathan and I had dated for about four and a half years and all but five months of that was long distance. So we just recently bought a house and we are mostly just excited to get settled in the same city as a married couple!”

Reid + Taylor {wedding} :: 2.27.16

How did you two meet, and how long did you two date?

Taylor: “We met out one night in Auburn when a friend introduced us! We dated for 5 years.”

How did Reid propose?

Taylor: “Reid proposed on a Friday evening in late August. I had been helping him move into a new house, and he said he didn’t want to work on the house that night– he wanted to take me to dinner. When he picked me up, I noticed he wasn’t wearing shoes! He said he couldn’t find them in the move and was going to check the new house so off we went. When we pulled up I didn’t even get out of the car- I thought he was just running inside. He signaled for me to come in and said he wanted  to show me something. When I came in the house he had flowers waiting in the kitchen and thanked me for everything I’d done to help him move. I looked for something to put the flowers in, and when I turned around he was on one knee!”

Taylor– what’s one of your favorite things about Reid?

Taylor: “It’s hard to just name one, but something I admire most about Reid is his patience!”

Reid– what’s one of your favorite things about Taylor?

Reid: “The thing I admire most about Taylor is her contagious laughter.”

What was each of yall’s favorite part of the day?

Taylor: “My favorite part of the day was the actual ceremony and the feeling I had as Reid and I walked down the aisle as a married couple. It was the greatest feeling of pride and joy I have ever experienced. Also, the excitement of having all our closest friends and family there to celebrate was incredible.”

Reid: “The best part of the big day was walking up the alley to the reception and seeing everyone as we walked in.”
