Becca and Brian’s Special September day 9~3~22

How and or where did you meet?
I work at Park Operations for the Springfield-Greene County Park Board. He came in for an interview for a position at our Golf Course Maintenance. I didn’t realize he liked me for awhile because he is very shy & no longer worked in my division so I didn’t talk to or see him anymore. We ended up talking on the phone at work & exchanged numbers. Took him a bit to text me & then our first date was watching the Chief’s play in the Superbowl in 2021. The rest is history!

How did you get proposed to?
It was our date anniversary in March from the date he asked me to be his girlfriend. I got home to my duplex after work & there was flowers. He pulled out a stuffed sloth with a homemade sign he had made saying will you marry me! It totally surprised me plus that he included my love for sloths in the proposal! I said yes!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
So many special memories on our special day! Feeling like a princess walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams! Dreams come true! Being surrounded by the best friends & family! My dad singing & playing his guitar in our wedding! Having my great Grandpa’s 49 Chevy Truck at the wedding & my 90 year old Grandma! It truly was the best day of my life!

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
Katie B was the best. I had sent her dresses I liked but the night before I seen a dress I loved. When I got there I told her about the dress & she found it. I tried it on first & feel in love. I had a bad experience at the place I went to before. The best moment is getting to have my mother there who is handicap for picking out my special dress! You all were able to get it here in time for wedding! I loved my dress & felt like a princess on my special day! Thank you!
