Liz & Kyle tied the knot on a perfect Saturday afternoon in June. They exchanged vows at their home church and celebrated their reception at the Country Club of Maryland! There was mint details, outdoor corn hole, and a night filled with dancing! These two love each other deeply and it was evident throughout the whole day.
Here is their love story from Liz's perspective!
Kyle and I met at Grove City College in 2010 while serving in Young Life. We actually met in the book store during the first week of school but were soon placed on the same team to start a club at Hickory High School in Hermitage, PA. This town is about 40 min away from Grove City. As the only two members of the team at a new school, we had lots of time to talk and get to know each other. Our friendship deepend over the next year and a half and we started dating in Jaunary 2012. I went back to Baltimore upon graduating that May and Kyle joined me two years later. We are so thankful to be in the same town again and so excited to spend the rest of our lives together!
And their proposal story!
One beautiful fall evening in September, Kyle took me out on a date downtown. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory, walked along the water, and enjoyed the evening just as we had on our first date in Baltimore. I should have suspected something was up, but I was positive that Kyle wasn't going to propose that night. I even joked with him that I'd be able to tell when he was going to propose because he would be nervous. He gave me no indication that it was coming! After a great night downtown, Kyle and I went back to my house. It was late, so I was ready to get to bed.
As I walked upstairs, I was greeted at my bedroom door by two of my roommates who had been instructed to make sure I didn't change out of my "cute clothes" while Kyle and some other friends set up everything downstairs. A few minutes later, I heard something repeatedly hitting my window. I was scared, so of course my initial reaction was to ask my roommates to go check who it was. However, they finally convinced me to open the window and see who was throwing the rocks. (It actually took so long for me to open the window that Kyle ran out of rocks and had to start using pennies.) Kyle called for me to come downstairs for a few minutes.
As I walked out into the hallway, I was greeted by candles and rose petals descending down the steps and out onto one of the porches. Kyle waited for me at the bottom of the stairs and lead me outside to one of the porches that was beautifully decorated with candles, roses, and christmas lights. He played me our song on his guitar, "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz, and then pulled out the ring! I was speechless! It was truly the perfect end to an incredible night.
Congratulations to Liz and Kyle!! Enjoy these images from their big day.
You two are going to do amazing things together. Congrats to the newlyweds!!
