We started planning Debbie and JR’s rustic chic wedding in early March at a wonderful new event space Isola Farms. When you are in their presence you can feel the love between the two of them and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. 🙂 Debbie and I are a lot alike in the fact that we like to get stuff done in a very fast pace! So, here we are 6 weeks later and all we have left to do is wait for October to get here! She has a fabulous team put together for this one and we cannot wait to show off this wedding which is full of rustic chic details! Her team is made up of Weddings Only DJ, Brian Pepper and Associates, A Chair Affair, Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals, KimE’s Flowers, Cocktails Catering, Corries Confections, and of course Isola Farms.
How did the two of you meet?
We met one night as I walked into his work area at our place of employment. I found myself staring and then he looked for a brief second and I looked away. I knew I was going to have to formulate a plan 🙂
I saw her for the first time at work, a couple days later she went out of her way to bring me brownies( in a glass pan no less….(she was setting up meeting #2, and i didnt even know it).
What did you do on your first date?
This is so funny because I don’t even think JR knew it was a “Date”… We sat on his couch, watched TV and drank beer . we stayed up until 4am talking
I invited her over to my apartment for a Trauma DVD marathon. There may have been a drink or two poured as well.
What one thing does he/she do that drives you crazy?
He snores… LOUD… but his great qualities far outweigh that problem 🙂
She can never keep track of her phone…She loses it every 5 minutes.
What is the best quality about your partner ?
His patience and calming nature
I love her big brown eyes. Amazing.
Who wears the pants in your relationship?
We really have a great way of dealing with so many things, and depending on the situation one of us just steps up and makes decisions
I will honestly say that we each have a leg in the pants. Depending on the topic we will each make a decision.
Describe the moment that you knew he/she was The One!
From the moment he was with the kids. I knew he was the one for me, but he had to be the one for them too. From the beginning we talked about how important our children were to us and this just made me 100% certain he was the one.
When I realized that she MADE time for me EVERYDAY…even if she could only drop by for 5 minutes, she was there with a smile from ear to ear.
Tell us about the proposal!!
I was completely surprised! He had all 5 children with a shirts are that said a different word… WILL YOU MARRY ME ? they did a dance and turned around showing each word. I looked over and he was down on one knee ..I couldn’t even stand up to go over to him.
How does your wedding reflect your personal style?
Elegant but not stuffy. And we love all things country so it’s perfect for us.
