From the moment we started dating we both knew that we were going to get married. We talked about from almost day one. The only problem was that I wasn't 18 yet, still in high school and we had a lot of ups and downs to work through. We had ex girlfriends trying to come back, my mother going through liking him to not liking him, me getting through my senior year and back again, and then just the typical relationship issues. After 9 months of the ups a downs we got engaged.
It was Monday July 25th, 2005, my 18th birthday. We went to Tulsa(the nearest town to us that actually has something to do) and went to dinner(at the Elephant Bar) and movie( The Island). After the movie we headed back to Vinita. Charlie made a detour off the road on the way home. We wound up on a dead in dirt road between to fields(his family owns the land) that over looked the lights of 5 towns. We got out of the truck and sat on the tailgate and talked and looked at the stars and town lights. Charlie got off of the tailgate and told me to stand up. He started shaking and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes.
Then 3 days after we got engaged my mom kicked me out(long story, if you wanna know you can ask) and I moved in with Charlie and his parents(talk about a kind of awkward situation). While living out there we set the date, his mom helped me plan our wedding, and we got our own apartment(Thank goodness).
This is my favorite engagement picture.
We got married March 18th, 2006 at 2:00 pm in the Cowboy Junction church. It was a fairly big wedding with about 300 guests. Our color theme was purples and whites. We had 4 bridesmaid and 4 groomsman. It turned out more beautiful than I thought(being in a church that looks like a barn on the inside). Here are a few pictures from that.
