How did you meet?
Dawson and I met in speech class our first semester of college at Stephen F. Austin State University. After about 2 weeks of staring at each other across the room Dawson finally worked up the courage to message me on Instagram (ha!). After that we were inseparable all throughout college!
How did the proposal happen?
Dawson proposed on my birthday at a steakhouse in Nacogdoches, TX. I was clueless until Dawson started crying after we ate! I so “kindly” said to him “why are you crying?” That's when they brought the dessert plate out that had “will you Marry me?” And he got down on one knee!
When it came to planning your wedding, what were some of the essential elements you incorporated that made it your dream wedding?
When we began planning our wedding I knew we wanted simple, yet elegant and family centered! I feel it was perfected by the simple sage green colors and greenery all around!
What piece of advice would you share with couples who are recently engaged and planning their wedding?
Enjoy every moment! Don’t let your engagement turn into only a wedding planning stage, talk about your future and where you want to end up in life together! Planning can be stressful but allow yourself plenty of time, oh and set a budget lol!
What would you tell couples who are considering using Rivers Light Photography to document their engagement and wedding day?
Ashley is so amazing to work with! I will be using her for all life event pictures in the future. Trust her and her vision, she is amazing!
