Emily & Tim are sweethearts living out their love story in Hawaii. Their days are filled with giggles from their little girl, trips to the lemonade stand, and beach time. Emily and Tim have grown together over the years, forming a beautiful bond. Tim’s eyes lit up as watched his beautiful bride in her Cinderella-style skirt, and Emily was all smiles every time Tim came near. Their love is energetic, sweet, and truly timeless.
From the Bride and Groom:
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
I remember the first day we met like it was yesterday. One of my best friends and I were hanging out, we went over to a new friends house to hang out before church. I walked in the door and there he was. He was smiling from ear to ear with a ball cap on backward and holding a guitar. I don’t know how long we looked at each other before saying “hi” but it felt like years. I think at that moment we knew.
What makes your relationship special?
One thing I think that makes us unique is that we are both very driven people. We love learning everything and anything we can, and with that passion, we have invested in each other’s hobbies and learned how much our dreams compliment each other. I am a photographer and he is into tech! He knows the basics of using a camera and I know how to partition a hard drive. It’s so much fun watching him work and learning new things from him.
I think another big thing we have in common is we both are very passionate about having our home be a “calming” space. We are very much into feng shui and strive for a very peaceful overall atmosphere. We also love cooking together. I grew up eating food from all over the world and my husband grew up wanting to experience different cultures. We both have a very deep appreciation for different cultures and one day hope to travel more.
How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?
The first day we met, I think we both knew. However, the first time I realized he was the man I was to marry was when I was living in Houston, Texas and he was living in Fort Hood, Texas. We were only dating at the time and he was in the military. He drove 7 hours every weekend just to see me in between my work schedule. I worked so often that some weekends we would only get to eat breakfast together and he would help my parents out with chores around the house or help my dad with the lawn.
I remember one night we were on a date at the Sundance cinema. They had an outdoor area you could just relax in. Well, why we were sitting there the stars were shining so bright and it was the first time in my life that I felt at peace. I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life watching films and eating Italian food with that man. And, I did. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
I suppose we don’t truly have a “proposal story to tell”. We went a different route than most. One day we were laying in a hammock next to a big lake and he looked over at me and said, “let’s get married” and I said, “I agree”. Then two weeks later we got married at a courthouse just him and I.
We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!
When we first got engaged he gave me this very unique gold band with a small diamond on it. I treasured that ring so much, but it was just a tad too big, and I managed to lose it while on a flight. This one, unfortunately, doesn’t have big sentimental value because it is just a placeholder while he saves up for something new.
