Long Memorial Day weekend, here we come.. and here comes the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Herres!
Andy proposed to Courtney Memorial Day weekend 2016.. exactly one year ago! They drove from Dallas down to the Carruth family ranch near Ozona, TX to hangout with Courtney’s parents and to enjoy some rest and relaxation. While on the five hour drive down Courtney thought Andy was acting funny but blamed it on the coffee. Once they arrived Andy wanted to take a ride out on the four wheeler, but Courtney assured him they had plenty of time to play on it over the weekend.
Later that evening Andy finally convinced Courtney to take Holmes and Shadow, the pups, for a walk. This was. the. moment. Since it was dark out they were guided by Courtney’s Christmas present from Andy, an ultra-bright headlamp. (These are actually handy, y’all!) During the walk Andy attempted to let the words come out that he had practiced so many times. Just like we have all heard before, nothing happens exactly how it was planned. With two dogs on leashes and occasionally being blinded by the ultra-bright headlamp, Andy got down on one knee and proposed to Courtney. Even with all the confusion the moment ended wonderfully with Courtney saying YES!
Thank you to Alba Rose Photography for sharing some of their Dallas Arts District and White Rock Lake engagement photos!
We’re just so excited to celebrate Courtney and Andy who are getting married this Saturday at Hidden Pines Chapel. Yay for love!
