the story of audrey & derek
THE DAY HAS COME....our engagement pictures are here! I don't usually post much about my personal life on social media or my blog but as most of you know I got engaged on November 24th, 2017 and my NOW fiancé Derek, proposed at the cutest Christmas light event in Arlington. It came as a complete surprise!! He was acting strange ALL day but I couldn't quite connect the dots on what was getting to him. Little did I know...he was nervously waiting all day and after our dinner at the Christmas light market to propose. He kept fidgeting with his jacket pocket and it's funny because looking back I know its because the ring was literally dangling in his front pocket!
The proposal was such a sweet moment and such an unforgettable night. We've been anxiously planning our wedding in Myrtle Beach and I can't wait to see what the future brings for us! In saying all this, I'm more than happy to share our engagement photos from the amazing Carolina Goodwin Photography (@carolinagoodwin) shot at Prather Park in Dallas.
I've also gotten some questions about how Derek and I met and it's quite the MODERN love story to say the least ....We both moved to Dallas 2 1/2 years ago we were still new-ish to the city. Anyway, we both matched on the dating app Bumble (GASP!) and met up for our first date at the cutest bar & restaurant called "The Old Monk" in Dallas. We talked for a couple hours and got to know each other. I loved how easy he was to talk to and I remember thinking what a fun, friendly guy he was and I couldn't wait to see him again. Here's proof that Bumble works ladies! :)
