Couple: Grace + Jeff
When their love story began: Jeff and I have been blessed to have known each other for so long; we have been good friends since we were in grade school. We used to carpool together to swim practice or track meets in middle school, and when we were in high school I used to bake cupcakes for jeff on his birthday or on valentine’s day (and steal granola bars out of his locker! ). Jeff went to Mizzou (University of Missouri) when we graduated high school and I went to Baylor University in Texas. Jeff and I started dating our sophomore year of college, and I transferred to Mizzou our junior year so we could be together! We are both seniors now, and we are looking forward to graduating and can’t wait to be married!
Wedding date: August 15, 2015
Wedding look/theme: “Rustic Elegance” could describe our theme for the decor of our wedding. I went with a classic color palette with blush pinks and gold accents. We want it to be a casual, fun, and youthful wedding with some elegance mixed in. My mom and my future mother-in-law have been extremely helpful and gracious as they are taking care of the decorations and other details of the wedding while I’m away at school, and I am so excited to see what they come up with!
