How did you and Tanner meet?
Super funny story, but basically it was during my senior year of high school, (circa 2015) and I needed a homecoming date. A mutual friend suggested that I go with her boyfriend’s best friend, Tanner, and I told her no. I didn’t want to go with someone I didn’t really know. As the dance got closer, I finally gave in and asked the curly-haired boy I knew nothing about to go with me, and luckily he said yes. Best decision I’ve ever made!
How did he propose?
Tanner proposed on the dock of his grandparent’s beach house. It was so surreal and perfect.
We opted out of doing a regular wedding cake and had donuts instead! We LOVED our donut cake from Doughlicious, and the leftover donuts doubled as our party favor.
