HOW THEY MET:
We met through a mutual friend. The mutual friend was the security guard for my sorority while I (Christie) was in college, and he was Reed’s cousin. We were both in Tuscaloosa one weekend, hung out and hit it off.
Reed proposed Easter weekend. He said he had an Easter present for me. It was a beautiful silver dish, which had Easter eggs sitting in it. I opened up the golden Easter egg, and there was a ring.
FAVORITE MOMENT FROM THE BIG DAY:
Besides the actual ceremony, I enjoyed the photos we took outside. I was worried it would be very cold and my bridesmaids would be freezing – I picked out short dresses for them. It was amazing weather. We turned on music and had a great time while we took pictures outside.
FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS:
Since our wedding was so close to Christmas, we had a Christmas tree as a decoration. It was the backdrop of all the pictures we took with the cakes, and they turned out beautifully. Our first dance song was “Forever Like That” by Ben Rector. Reed and I went to a concert where he performed, and it was the first concert we ever attended together. When he started singing the song, I knew I wanted it to be our first dance song. My engagement and wedding ring are both very special to me. Before the wedding, I got the band on my engagement ring changed and a wedding ring to match. The smaller diamonds on both bands are from my grandmother’s ring.
