Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met at a local country bar that I was working at as a bartender while attending college, Robby was a local who just finished San Jose State and returned back to his home town. He came into the bar to grab a sandwich after a long day of work. I just started working at the bar and was becoming familiar with everything. He ordered a ham sandwich and I thought he was cute so I thought why not pile up the meat and make it an extra special sandwich. We talked and he enjoyed the sandwich and went his separate way. About a week later he came back into the bar and I asked him if he wanted another one of my special sandwiches, with a big smile.

He replied quickly, No…and then asked me If I’ve made any sandwiches since. I replied “no” it’s not something people ever order. He said good, because he had the worst food poisoning ever! I went to check the package and the ham had expired months ago! I felt horrible, but hey he came back and we are married today 🙂

Planning of the wedding was easy, Robby and I wanted a simple black and white classic look. Not to mention I have the best group of friends who helped tremendously and the venue was beautiful which made the planning a snap!

What was the most amazing part of your day? Was when we both locked eyes for he first time as I walked down the isle to meet my soon to be husband and as he waited to take my hand and take me as his own for the rest of our lives. Everything that was so important before didn’t matter at this point, just that we were to be with each other and live in holy matrimony.

What else would you like to share about your big day? I bought my husband a brand new black cowboy hat for his wedding present and presented it to him on the dance floor with a special requested song “Rockin’ Years” by Dolly Parton with Ricky Van Shelton. It was something I had been waiting to do since the day he proposed. I always loved this song as a child and never realized why until I met my own cowboy. It meant a lot to me and brought a tear to my hubby’s eye.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? First find a venue, second pick the special date and then start your guest list immediately. This was the most time consuming of all and for us was the most difficult. Try not to stress yourself out on all the little things and see the big picture.
