It was the homecoming game. That’s where it all began.
Under the night sky, she stood on the high school track and looked out at the sea of maroon and white as the cheers echoed through the packed football stands. The lights of the field illuminated the poms that shook in her hands as the adrenaline raced through her body. It was half time, and the announcer had just said her name over the loud speaker, but she could barely hear it over the loud beating of her own heart.
The smile that spread across his
face couldn’t have been any bigger.
Fast forward ten years from the day that #44 asked a big, bold question to the sweet sophomore in her cheer uniform. Fast forward to now. He brought her back to that very same place. To the exact same field where it all began, and just like that, it all rushed back. The crowd, the excitement, the homecoming dance. Then their senior prom, their high school graduation and all of their adventures together since. Through college and the start of their careers. Every laugh. Every date night. Every I love you. It all came right back. It had been years since he framed that script the announcer read that night. The one that had contained a question she’d never forget. And, now, here they were, in that same spot. Together. He led her to that field, their field, and he dropped to his knee. He asked her another question, but this time, the question came with a ring.
Fast forward even further in time. To this weekend. To their wedding. Where “Will you?” turned into “I do.” From the football stadium bleachers to the white wedding chairs, both times with loved ones looking on, the first chapter of forever came full circle — and the homecoming dates will never have to go home without each other… again.
Allie and Kyle, you are fun and warm and make everyone around you feel special and important, from every single guest right down to us, no one could’ve left this weekend without knowing how much you truly do care. Thank you for all the smiles on your wedding day and every day. It’s made our journey together one we’re sad is over but won’t soon forget. And, hey, we’ll always have Goldies, right? We just might have to plan a double-focaccia-date in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future. For us, those things are to dinner what cookie butter is to dessert! We love you both — and, of course Roz, too! — more than we could ever express in words, so we’ll let your photos do the talking, because they got every ounce of everything we had, our whole heart, and more.
