Have you ever dreamt of your forever house? Maybe it includes a white picket fence or a wrap-around porch or a walk-in closet. No matter how your dream house looks, they're all made with 5 essential elements:

Walls, doors & windows, a roof, furnishings, and a foundation.

Much like a house is built with these parts, so is a marriage. Walls of support to hold y'all up, combining two families and friends. Doors & windows that open to new opportunities, letting light shine in. A roof to protect y'all from a storm, keeping you safe and warm. Furnishings and decorations fill the house like the memories you've built together. And the most crucial element is the foundation--the base which everything rests on. Firm and secure.

"Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends."- Unknown

Michelle and Bryce Engagement Photos
Michelle grew up in Amarillo, Texas, while Bryce was raised in Stratford, Texas. (Go Elks!). I have had the privilege to have known Michelle & her family since I was little. We've been teammates, and both graduated from the best college. (Sic 'em!)

Michelle first saw Bryce at Fuzzy's Tacos on 34th. Bryce casually chatted with friends and never noticed Michelle there. She tried to work up the courage to say something to him but ended up walking away to enjoy her meal. Two days later, on November 3, 2018, Michelle & Bryce's paths would cross again at another local restaurant. But this time, Bryce immediately noticed her as she walked through the doors. He instantly knew she was something special. She was tall, beautiful, and took his breath away.

Bryce knew he couldn't let Michelle slip away, so he asked her on a date. It took three days to convince her, but Michelle finally agreed. On November 7, Michelle & Bryce had their first date at Bubba's. Beginning the building process.

After their second date at Georgia Street Taphouse, Bryce drove Michelle home, and a Tyler Childers' song "Feathered Indians" came on. Listening to the lyrics, both Bryce and Michelle felt they had found their soulmate.

"Honey tell me how your love runs true
And how I can always count on you
To be there when the bullets fly
I'd run across a river just to hold you tonight."
-Feathered Indians by Tyler Childers


For a year and a half, Michelle & Bryce dated. Building a strong foundation of trust and love. Nail by nail, adding the frame to their forever home.

Michelle's favorite thing about Bryce is how he can make her smile. She loves how he makes her feel beautiful and confident, pushing away her doubts. They're comfortable around each other and letting their silly-side show.

Bryce loves Michelle's servant's heart. Always putting others' needs before her own. He loves her calm demeanor, able to defuse any situation they face.
Michelle & Bryce first came in together to look at rings and gather ideas. Michelle picked out an oval-shaped diamond with a diamond-accented band. Over a year later, Michelle & Bryce returned to make sure she still loved that style of engagement ring. She picked out the exact same ring. Falling more in love with the elegant design and how she can pair it with any wedding band.

Bryce had secretly been accumulating all the details for Michelle's perfect proposal. Listening to the specifics Michelle wanted for over a year. Bryce teased Michelle that he would just use a ring pop to propose with.

Bryce & Michelle scheduled a normal date night at the Drunken Oyster. While Michelle was away during the day, Bryce prepared their newly renovated back porch, their private oasis, to pop the question. Making sure it was intimate, thoughtful, and perfect for Michelle. He arranged for Michelle's favorite photographer, David Williams, to capture the moment so that they would have it forever.

When Michelle had just gotten back to the house, Bryce told Michelle he had purchased a surprise for their porch and wanted her to walk outside to see it before their dinner. Waiting outside, sat photos of them, flowers, the oval ring, and of course, a ring pop.

Bryce got down on one knee and asked Michelle to spend the rest of their lives together.
Michelle & Bryce have made their foundation on solid ground. God built a special house of love with Michelle & Bryce. Each nail hammered with respect and loyalty. Each brick laid with happiness, humor, and patience. Each wall painted with warmth and gentleness. Turning their house into a home.

Michelle & Bryce, we're over the moon with happiness for yall. I am anxious to see what God is building for yall's new home together. Whatever He adds on, it's filled with eternal love.

"It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built." - Luke 6:48

With love,
Torri

Love Note: Catherine & Matt

The lights dim. The country band begins strumming their instruments, filling the room with a captivating melody. You sway back and forth to the beat, humming every note. Feeling a tap on your shoulder, you turn around. "Would you like to dance?" With a sparkle in your eye, you grab their hand, and beeline to the dance floor. Melting into each other's grip, you float across the floor until the song drifts away. This is how Catherine & Matt's love story started.
