Reagan and Nathan met on the second day of high school in AP English class. They became best friends and the following year, on June 1st, 2012, he asked her to go steady. During Christmas in 2015, they were sharing their tradition of dining at Tolbert’s Restaurant in Grapevine, Texas before Nathan went back to school. After dining, Nathan nervously asked her to go for a walk to see the gigantic Christmas tree and display she had loved to see each year. As they rounded the big tree, she saw the familiar gazebo where they sat together many times.
This time, it was filled with cheering family members and this was it! She couldn’t believe it! Once they walked into the gazebo, Nathan got down on one knee and proposed. Reagan wore a strapless embroidered gown by Terry Costa as she walked down the aisle in the beautiful Flying V Ranch at Decatur, Texas. The 3-tier, naked cake was by Mug’s Cafe & Bakery. Reagan and Nathan spent two nights at the Gaylord in Grapevine, Texas and then enjoyed a five-day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.

Christ is the reason Nathan and I are together and the marriage is possible. So leaning on and trusting in Him throughout the process is a must. Praying through every decision helped alleviate so much stress throughout our five-month engagement and ultimately led us to having a Christ-centered wedding as well as marriage! Nathan is currently in school to become a pastor and I hope to also work in the church someday, so this was very important to us. Also, pre-marital counseling is a huge lifesaver! Having someone walk you through different aspects of marriage and life together really helps in the first few months living with each other!
