How they met: Back in 2011, Kara agreed to go with a friend out in Baton Rouge. In August of 2013, Andrew and Kelli got married. The only way they can explain how they reconnected was that God had a bigger plan for them. The only problem was Kara lived in Hammond, La and Graham was in Houston, so they started talking on the phone every night. Two weeks later, Kara went to Houston to visit and that’s when they started dating. Every other week, one of them would drive to the other just to spend the weekend together. Three months went by and they both knew it was time to take the step, because nothing had felt so right before. On a Sunday, Kara started looking for jobs in Houston, and by the following Friday she had a job. Two weeks later, she packed her bags and moved to Houston to start their adventure together.
How Graham proposed: It was the weekend Kara moved to Houston, and they were going to take Annie (their adorable dog) for a walk but Graham forgot something on his nightstand so he asked Kara to grab it. When Kara turned around, he was on one knee and asked her to marry him. He said this was the best place to propose because they talked for hours on the phone and that’s when he fell in love. The way he proposed was so intimate and perfect, so this is what set the tone for their personal and intimate wedding.
Memorable moments from the wedding: My dad and sisters reaction to seeing me in my wedding dress… that was the moment I really felt like a bride. It might sound so corny, but seeing Graham standing at the end of the aisle. I knew everything had fallen into place, and I was right where I was supposed to be and with the most amazing man I have ever met.
