Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Christopher and I met when we were 14 years old at a mutual friend’s house. We became very close until I (Kabrina) moved to another state. We kept in close contact and talked everyday visiting each other as much as we could. When we graduated high school, we moved into together at the age of 18. Life happened and we had two beautiful little boys, Treyton and Weston. We did things a little backwards but decided it was time to make it official. Christopher proposed to me on December 22, 2010 on Santa Clause’s lap. I thought I was going to get pictures at the mall with Santa and as I sat on his lap the local newspaper came out and started snapping pictures. He got down and one knee and popped the question!  We were featured on the front page of the local newspaper as well. I planned the wedding in a little under a year with the help of my mom and mother-in-law all while going to school full-time online and being a mom to two busy little boys.

What was the most amazing part of your day? Most amazing part of our wedding day was spending time with all our friends and family it’s one of the only times where you have everyone you love all together at the same time!

What else would you like to share about your big day? My husband went sky diving the day of our wedding and was almost late to the wedding! Also, our first dance happened to be just as the sun was setting! Talk about perfect timing!
