Last weekend was one of those bigger than life moments for my family. My little sister, Tori, got engaged to her boyfriend, Jason! Jason just so happens to be one of David's closest friends... he grew up with David and I and we've known him forever. Even though Tori and Jason had met through us a few times (they were both in our wedding!), things didn't get romantic until a mutual friend suggested they date. And the rest is history. These two goofy souls were made for each other!
And I'm really excited because Tori and Jason said I could share their engagement story with all of you! It's such a sweet story, so put your romantic game face on : )
A long time ago, Tori had a dream that she went to the Braves baseball game. Typically, Turner Field will pass out a bobble head, foam tomahawk or something fun like that to all of the patrons as a game souvenir. In Tori's dream, the stadium was passing out yellow roses (her favorite flower) as the game souvenir. As she walked through the stadium and everyone in the crowd held yellow roses, she was proposed to. Great dream, right?
Guess what? Jason made her dream come true. For realz.
When they walked in the stadium together, the usher handed Tori a bouquet of yellow roses with a note tied around it that said "dreams do come true!" My other sister, Callie, and I were secretly hiding and capturing every moment on video and film.
As Tori and Jason walked into the stadium, strangers held yellow roses. We had passed out about six dozen roses to strangers and asked that they just hold the roses as she walked by, but as soon as Tori walked in and they saw her with her bouquet of roses, the crowd each held up their yellow rose for her to see. I got chill bumps, y'all. It was amazing!
They also decided to pass her the roses as she walked by, which was so sweet. Then Tori (who still had no clue what was going on!) and Jason walked to a special room that he had reserved. My parents were standing in front of the room, waiting to give her a rose and a hug.
Tori and Jason then went into the room, where he proposed to her. We had it all decorated with more yellow roses and pictures of them. It was beautiful!
Both our family and Jason's family were all secretly at the game. As he proposed, we all sat outside the room and waited for her to come out. And prayed she said yes! Ha, only kidding. HDawg was so excited for his aunt Towwie, he fell asleep.
Don't worry... she said yes!
She was shocked, needless to say!
Look at this happy couple! :)
It was so fun to celebrate with all of our family. Here I am with my parents and sisters.
And here is the rest of the crew. I'm so excited these families are coming together!
Jason graciously bought the whole group great tickets to the game. Which the Braves won, by the way. I'm telling you, it was an awesome night!
You know how they say "you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family?" Well, we kind of did get to choose Jason! He's such a sweet, humble, God-loving, friendly guy. And he'll make a great husband for Tori! They are lucky to have each other. I am so excited for my little sister : )
You can expect to hear more about this wedding as we get to planning it. My sister has always wanted a fall wedding, so this shindig may be just around the corner!
Congratulations, Tori and Jason! We love y'all!
