Hello February! I am welcoming you with open arms! I have so much amazing-ness scheduled this month I can barely contain myself!!!!!! A big photo shoot for Wedding Wire, a fabulous ski trip with my 15 closest friends, a gorgeous wedding in DC, and 4 of my favorite Texas bands are coming up for a concert together! My gorgeous wedding happens to be for this lovely lady below. Not only is she beautiful, but she is the sweetest thing ever!
Wedding Date: February 22, 2014
Wedding Location: Hotel Monaco, Washington, D.C.
How did Dave pop the question: We were in Richmond, VA for the Christmas Holiday and made plans to go out to dinner with all of our friends. We arrived at the restaurant and there was a cute little band playing. I love live music and wanted to stay longer to listen (I obviously had no idea what the rush was to leave). With a little prodding, we headed out and over to our friends house. They always decorate with Christmas lights and were going to have the big reveal. Alex, Davids best man, asked me to let him know when the roof lights came on. There I am waiting and waiting, and doing a little more waiting when I finally saw lights that read "Marry Me, Amanda?" I was in shock and just remember saying "Wait, what?" over and over. Finally, someone told me to turn around. When I did, there was David, down on one knee, asking me to marry him.

Tell us the story of how you two met: David and I met through a mutual friend at Virginia Tech. We instantly had a connection but the timing was not right for either one of us. We remained in contact over the next three years at college. Then one day in 2010, he asked me on a date and officially moved out of the friend zone.
What are you most looking forward to on your Big Day: We are most looking forward to committing ourselves to each other and starting this new and wonderful adventure. We are also excited to have our family and friends there to celebrate with us. We thank everyone for their love and support!
Where are you planning to kick your feet up when the party is over: We are escaping the cold weather and headed to California. We plan to stay in San Diego a few days and then just drive up the coast and wing it...true Cali style.
