Mary first met Parker when she went to visit friends at the University of Illinois. She instantly fell for him—she couldn’t get over how beautiful his eyes were.
I have been hooked every since!
Mary has always loved Parker’s sense of humor and that he makers her laugh every day.
One of my favorite things about Parker is his heart. Parker is so genuine and wants to help everyone. I love his generosity and loyalty not only with me but others as well.
Parker proposed to Mary over his birthday weekend when they were in Louisville, Kentucky. He kept talking about going to see The Big Four Bridge, which is a former railroad truss bridge. The Big Four connects Kentucky to Indiana over the Ohio River.
Parker and I sat on the benches watching people walk the bridge. We discussed our future plans and the excitement we felt for our future. Parker shared that he had been carrying something for the past few days looking for the right time. I responded ‘nuh uh…” as Parker kneeled down on the bridge. Both of us shaking and trembling, Parker proposed!
When it came time to look for a venue to celebrate their day, Mary and Parker wanted something unique.
We were looking for a rustic/industrial wedding venue. Not only did The Haight fit that criteria but the warmth the staff brought when welcoming you to the venue was just what we were looking for.
Mary’s advice for newly engaged couples is that everything is going to fall into place.
As cliché as it is, sometimes that is all you need to hear. Take small pauses to look out at all the people who support you both on that day. It is amazing, breathe and take in the experience.
