Congratulations to Ariel & Gage! This sweet couple is tying the knot February 2018!
THEIR LOVE STORY: We met at age 12 and oh boy, it really was love at first sight! We were introduced to each other at the baseball fields by one of our mutual best friends Cameron (AKA The Best Man) in the summer before going into 7th grade. We ended up starting junior high at the same school.. and after many dates to Castaway Cove Waterpark, the local movies, and so many junior high dances, we finally began dating April 13th of our 7th grade year. We were together for a little over a year! Then while going into high school, we decided to take a break from our relationship, as we were still very young… But we remained very close friends! However, senior year rolled around and we realized those 7th grade butterflies and that crazy, childlike love for each other never went away! By the time our senior trip in Jamaica hit, we just knew we had to be back together. However, we were going to different colleges and knew we’d both be very busy, especially with school and Gage’s baseball career. We decided to hold off for a bit, but we trusted that God had a plan for us. After spending almost every weekend together and making each other the utmost priority, Gage officially asked me to be his girlfriend again on April 13th of our freshman year in college (just like in junior high). After 4.5 years of dating and falling madly in love all over again, Gage finally popped the big question at our best friend’s house (which happened to be the exact same spot where we had our first kiss in 7th grade). Both of our families and friends were there for the sweet surprise! Gage did such an amazing job, especially because he usually never gets away with surprising me, but he totally pulled it off!! It was so perfect and definitely one of the most special nights of my entire life. We are beyond thankful for all that God has done for us and super excited for all the adventures He has in store for us.
We are so happy to welcome them to The Grand Ivory family! The love you have for each other is something so special and we can’t wait to celebrate your amazing day!
