Laura and Reydel met at Ninth & O Baptist Church in Louisville, KY.
Over a few months they ran into each other at some group activities with friends between slip-n-slide kickball, tractor pulls and horse races.
He will say that she fell for him since he first borrowed her phone to take some selfies of himself at the slip-n-slide party. She insists that is not the case. You might get a different story depending on who you ask.
He realized he liked her during a Downs After Dark event (read horse races and music). That evening he discovered she had a horrible track record for seeing any movies made after 1979, so he invited her to watch The Guardians of the Galaxy at his place. That was their first date and it happened on October 1, 2017.
After 2 years of sharing amazing experiences and tough conversations alike, on October 19, 2019 they drove 3 hours and a half for a thrilling (and rainy) horseback ride through the hills of Tennessee. In a lookout with an amazing view of the surrounding the hills he popped the question.
No need to tell you she said yes. That’s the reason you’re here!
We’re now starting a new chapter in our lives and can’t wait to have our favorite people celebrate with us.
Born in California, has visited most states in the Union and loves horses.
