Rustic Countryside Wedding in Tennessee

Ty and I met in August of 2010 at the University of Tennessee at Martin. We were each members of the collegiate rodeo team (Go Skyhawks!), Ty was a saddle bronc rider and myself the ever-so cliché barrel racer. There's no other way to say it, so sorry if you lose your lunch, but it was love at first sight. If you ask Ty, it was the night of our first rodeo meeting of the season. When he saw me walk through the door he said he knew that I was something different. Now me on the other hand, I was probably running late and came rushing into the room to find the closest seat, trying not to be yea, no eye contact was made then. For me it was a couple nights later when some of the rodeo team members were having a get-together. We all went driving around and something about this kid with the cutest grin I'd ever seen, and those eyes... "Cowboy, take me away" buddy 'cause I was smitten. I'd never met anyone in my life that could rock velcro tennis shoes and a school bus yellow truck like he did. And I loved it. I loved him. Anyways a few Pirates of the Caribbean movies and La Cabaña dates later we were dating! I'd be lying if I said it was all peaches and cream after that, we had our share of off and on struggles. However I'm thankful for a gracious Lord that is King of second chances. I pray everyone gets to experience God's perfect love and his never-ending mercy, it is the foundation of which Ty and I's love is built on and we strive to model that every day.
