Sophie and Gus’s Mammoth Springs Wedding~9-29-18

How and or where did you meet?
We met freshman year of college. We lived on the same floor in the dorms, and we met at a Sigma Nu rush event. My brother was the president, he was interested in rushing, which he did, and a few years later I became the White Rose for the fraternity!

How did you get proposed to?
His family has a lot of land in Mammoth Springs, Arkansas, and there is this beautiful look out over the water. It is such a pretty view, and it is one of my favorite places in the world! He asked me to ride around with him, and we pulled up to that spot. I was looking at the view and I turned around to find him on one knee!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle and seeing him for the first time was my absolute favorite memory. He looked so handsome and he got choked up, and it was the sweetest thing ever!
