Allison and Clay
how we met
We actually first met at a wedding! I was a bridesmaid and he was the groomsman that I was paired to walk with. We instantly hit if off and spent the evening dancing, drinking, and having a great time!
how they asked
March 17th, 2019 was the best and most unexpected day! Yes, that is St. Patrick’s Day and it is also Clay’s birthday. Every year for St. Patty’s Day, we take a long weekend vacation with a group of our friends to a different city and celebrate with green beer & outfits! March 17th was a Sunday this year, so after our weekend away, we got home and cuddled up to watch tv all afternoon. We had dinner plans with his parents in a city about 30 minutes from our house. Clay’s mom suggested going there to eat because she has heard great things about the restaurant and they would be there visiting friends in the afternoon. After dinner, we were heading home when I realized Clay was taking an unexpected turn. When I asked him where he was going he simply said “I want to check something out.” Still clueless, I was looking around until I saw it. He took me back to the reception venue that we first met! It was the sweetest surprise I will forever hold in my heart.
