Cortney and Garrison’s love story began as the typical rom-com plot; they constantly bumped into each other at mutual friends’ gatherings. The bride says, “These interactions were always enjoyable but largely platonic. If you asked Garrison, he’d say he was biding his time.”
Sarah and TJ met while working in downtown Houston. With their desks conveniently across from one another, the two would talk for hours. “We became best friends and would get lunch and coffee together every day. That grew into messaging on skype all day at work and barely getting any work done,” says Sarah. “I remember thinking there was no possible way I could ever have enough time with TJ.”
Before Matthew and Lauren had their blush and burgundy wedding, their love story began in the fall of 2016.
On a Sunday morning in 2016, Matthew texted his college best friend, Ford, that he met the most beautiful girl. Ford instantly recognized Matthew’s love interest as his girlfriend’s sorority sister and quickly organized a get-together for the friends. Lauren and Matt talked for hours, discussing everything under the sun and quickly realizing how much they had in common. Lauren fell in love with Matthew’s honesty and ability to make her laugh, while Matthew loved Lauren’s zeal for life and ambition.
It only took one date for Raleisha to know Matthew was “the one”. In a loud atmosphere, she could barely hear him and went back and forth in her head on whether she should leave or tell him the truth.
