THEIR STORY


“Will and I met via work; we were both medical device sales reps for the same company at the time. He was the new associate in Arkansas, and I was the new thoracic sales specialist out of Texas. We met at the national sales meeting in Florida and instantly became friends. Fast forward ten months and we were both newly single. He asked me to fly to Arkansas to cover a sternal surgery that he had never seen before. Little did I know, he was well versed in this surgery and just wanted me to fly out and hang out with him. I said ‘yes,’ and I still remember walking out of the airport and seeing him in his vest, tight jeans, and boots, propped up against his car waiting for me.

After three months of long-distance dating, he got promoted but had to move across the country to Spokane, WA. After two painful months of super-long-distance dating, we decided we couldn’t take it anymore. I took a leap of faith and moved from Texas to Washington to be with him. Six months after that, he got promoted again, and we had to move to Billings! Still just dating, not even engaged yet! I was so nervous and skeptical about Montana and Billings, but I am so glad we made the move – we love it here. The people are amazing, and we are thankful to live in such a beautiful place. I took a leap of faith for love by moving across the country to be with him, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Better to take a risk for love and fail, than to never take the risk at all, right?”


BIG BLESSINGS


“Due to Covid, we had to shrink our guest list to 25 people a week before the wedding. I was so stressed and upset. However, this turned out to be the biggest blessing. Our day was so special and intimate. Our parents and family gave speeches during dinner, which were so heartfelt, genuine and beautiful. Everyone in the room was crying, including our photographers and the wait staff! The amount of love in that room between seemingly 25 strangers (our parents and families had never met in person before our wedding day because they live all over the country) was so touching. The one thing I was most stressed about turned into the biggest blessing and the best possible wedding I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful for our small, intimate day; it still makes my heart pound just thinking back on it.” –Caiti, the bride
