Lindsay and Jake’s love story began in Oklahoma, where they were both attending school. The couple met on a dating app, as many people do these days. The bride says, “We only went on a handful of dates before I ended up having hip surgery. Jake was so caring and helpful for only knowing me for a short time. I knew he was special!”
Tara and Bryce met in high school and fell in love. The couple both attended Oklahoma State University and moved to Houston after graduation, where they began building a beautiful life together.
After meeting online, Valerie and Vincent went on a spontaneous date to grab burgers, but it was off to a rocky start for Valerie. “I walked about half a mile in the Texas heat during the summer to meet up with Vincent and arrived at the restaurant super disheveled! Of course, I was sweating and completely out of breath! Vincent wasn’t discouraged, though, and we were basically inseparable thereafter,” the bride says.
Allie and Chad were set up through mutual friends and immediately clicked. After one date, Chad knew that Allie was special.
Taylor and Robert grew up in Beaumont, Texas, but their story didn’t begin until years later in Houston when they ended up on a road trip together. “After an eight-hour drive turned into a twelve-hour drive, with lots of traffic and road closures, we had great conversations, lots of laughs and truly enjoyed each other’s company. It was that trip that made us realize that we wanted to spend more time together.”
Robert proposed to Taylor on Christmas Eve with all her family present and even had the family dog, Bourbon, help out.
