How We Met!!

Aaron and I actually met through Gar, (Aaron's best friend) and Jennifer (Crystal's sister) about 5 year ago one night playing Jinga at Jen and Gar's apartment.  And we have been pretty good friends ever since.  Aaron, his sister and his mom spend many Holiday's with our family so that has always been pretty natural for everyone to be together. Our Family and friends told us all the time to get together but I thought of Aaron only as a friend, that and Aaron actually never just came out and told me himself that he liked me.. I just heard through the grapevine from everyone else. There were even instances at work when people thought we were a couple and the time I asked him to pretend to be my boyfriend and walk me to my car to save me from this creepy guy at one of our company parties.  Eventually...I came to the realization that I just "might" like him too and tried to stop talking myself out of it. After about 4 and half years and one night out with friends -Heather and Noah, Aaron finally confessed his love to me while sitting alone at a picnic table (though neither one of us can remember exactly what he said- but he somehow made his point.)  That night we sealed our love and affection to each other with a kiss!  We have been inseparable since!

 After dating, traveling, moving in together and falling more deeply in love with one another Aaron finally proposed on September 28, 2010. 

(waiting patiently)

(He looks nervous, huh?)

Made friends with this little guy

Aaron took me on a romantic sunset picnic with their favorite foods and wine and after waiting til the sun was almost down he got down on one knee and said a bunch of stuff I can't remember and then finally asked me to be his wife.  I remember nodded in agreement unable to speak until finally blurting out "Yes!" because he looked nervous, just as the sun went down and it became dark.  After hugging and kissing I finally asked Aaron if we could go into some light so I could see my ring!  That and... I had to Pee! ;) 

Now they we planning a large yet intimate family and friend, fun filled, rustic wedding with some vintage charm at Crystal Springs, in Magnolia, Texas on February 25, 2012.

Were Getting Married!!!! 2/25/2012

Hi Everyone!
As most of you know Aaron popped the question this past September and we have been staring this whole wedding planning process.  We thought it would be easy to keep everyone up to date on plans and details so we started this wedding blog to keep all of our friends and family up to date on all the scoop.  We know a lot of you are traveling from out of state so we are hoping you can utilize this website for finding hotels, transportation, flights and ask any questions you might have.  We are so excited that we can share such a special day with everyone we love so much!  I'll be updating as more wedding details come along so that you can stay "in the loop"

We can't wait to see all of you!
Love you and God Bless,
Aaron and Crystal
