Share Your Story :

We were best friends on campus. Everyone always thought we were dating; they ultimately knew before we did! We would post photos with each other on social media and everyone would ask us what was "going on." The funny thing is, we don't even remember the first time we ever met. We both have made up our own story, but honestly we have no idea. At some point we became best friends and the rest is history!

The Proposal:

On our first date, we went to Milk and Honey after dinner. This was where we decided we were going to make things official and start dating. To be honest, it scared Jimmy. I was like "so are we going to do this thing or not, because there is no point to play games." And we both counted to three and said yes! So very elementary and funny to think about, but we officially started dating 1/17/17! Jimmy decided to "do this thing or not" and he asked me to marry him only six months after! At the same exact place where we had decided to date! The flavor of the day was "Taylor will you marry me?"

Where are you now?:

Today we have been married for almost 4 months and it's been the happiest time of our lives! We are more in love than ever and are having too much fun living together for the first time. We bought a house in Akron and are so grateful to have our cuddly little family. We adopted a kitten and Jimmy has fully committed to the "Dog Dad" lifestyle. We are extremely happy to have each other and we can't wait to see what the future holds for us.... with hopefully a honeymoon soon!
