From the groom:
Jessica and I met on Halloween. I was having a Halloween party at my house. She worked at the same salon as one of my good friends wives, and they were both friends. She joined Summer (her friend from the salon) at my Halloween party. Boy am I glad she did because when she walked through that door in her Bat/Vampire costume it was over for me. I was too much of a wimp that night to do anything about it but we shared some small talk, about family and life. Some time went, and I tracked down her number through a few people. There are tons of details after this but long story short this is kind of how it started and it all worked out beautifully.
Our engagement was on April 1 2016. I rented out our favorite dive bar called Bobbys idle hour. With the help from my Mom decorated the whole place with Roses and other decorations I could never think of and had it looking beautiful. I coordinated with her sister for her to have a “girls” night and it just so happened that girls night was taking her to Bobbys Idlehour for an “Open Mic night.” When she got there I was waiting in my suit and her sister ran out the door. I read her a letter and proposed right there on the stage. I had coordinated all her immediate family to fly in and her best friend from LA, as well as all of our friends from Nashville. They began pouring in and we had a big party to celebrate the occasion with some live music and a ton of light beer and pizza (two of Jessicas favorite things).
