Cassie and Jacob’s lucky ticket proposal ~ 5-29-21

How and or where did you meet?
We met at Fallstaff’s in downtown Springfield after starting a conversation that same day on Bumble. He lived in a loft downtown at the time and invited me along to has afternoon visit to his favorite spots. After Fallstaffs, we went to Finnigan’s, Skinny’s, and Pappo’s

How did you get proposed to?
About a year after we met, he bought a house and I sold mine to move in with him. One night, he said he bought us scratchers to do at home. As I got to the bottom of mine scratcher it said “will you marry me?” I turn around and there he was with the ring.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
The fact that every aspect of our day had a special touch from people we love.
The whole event was at his parents house with an amazing view
My brother was our officiant
My friend made our desserts
Another friend ran our video and music equipment so we could stream our ceremony
My mother in law’s friend made our flowers
Our friends and family made up our wedding party

What vendors did you use at your wedding?
Colton’s in St. Robert MO
Allyson Dougherty (currently only uses her personal Facebook page)

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
Great, I was able to take my mom and mother in law to be there for the moment. I really liked that my stylist gave some advice and opinions on what I should try on. It helped me get to the perfect dress for me. One of my friends saw photos and said it was something that she hadn’t seen before. Things like that just make it feel a little more special.
