MOLLY AND BRIAN
Brian and Molly met on the Bumble dating app in February 10th, 2019. Because of the nature of that app, Molly was the one to "make the first move" and sent a message first! After chatting for a couple of days through Bumble, they decided to meet up in person three days after first talking. So they met up at Function Brewing for a drink. Since this was Molly's first time meeting up with someone from a dating app, she had told friends where she was going, what she was wearing, and to check in if they hadn't heard from her by a certain time. Brian and Molly hit it off very well, talked for a long while, and lost track of time. So when she glanced at her phone, she had a bunch of missed calls and worried texts from her friends saying they were about to call Function to see if she was still there. Oops! They went on their next date a few days later.
THE ENGAGEMENT STORY!
In December 2019, Brian and Molly decided to move in together. After a long weekend of moving his stuff into her place, unpacking, and cleaning his old apartment, they decided it might be nice to get dressed up and go out for dinner to celebrate this next chapter of their relationship. They went to Malibu Grill and she was a little suspicious that he kept checking his jacket, but she thought he was glancing at his phone! They decided to come home to eat some cake and while she was getting it out, Brian got down on one knee and proposed to in their kitchen, in the home they now shared. He asked her to unpack just one more box.
"We chose Sincerely Yours because of the great reviews, the sense of relief we got after having a phone chat with Christina to learn more about her services, and the affordable price for everything that was included!"
Brian and Molly chose to get married at Garment Factory in Franklin, IN, which is a historically restored, 1920s venue. It has an industrial feel with brick and wood. Their colors were dusty blue, navy blue, and gold.
They included a few elements that feel more unique to their story without spending a lot of time DIYing everything
(such as honey favors from local honey farm because they met on Bumble and favorite books for the ring bearers to carry rings in).
Molly looked forward to the moment they'd be announced as newlyweds and also having friends and family celebrate together with them, after a weird year of not seeing people very much.
They look forward to all of the adventures they'll be going on together as a married couple. In 50 years, she says they'll probably be doing a lot of the same things they had been doing during the pandemic - enjoying reading together, doing puzzles, playing games, and the occasional walk around the neighborhood!
Their advice to future couples is:
1) Hire a planner to help you out!
2) Have intentional nights together where you don't talk about the wedding!
One of the best wedding planning decisions we made was booking Christina for wedding weekend coordination services. Christina is the best to work with! She is so organized, friendly, and knowledgeable. She thinks of everything and had it all taken care of! It was such a relief to us to have her helping with the rehearsal and all of wedding day. Everything went so smoothly and I had no stress because I knew she was in charge! She was super responsive and patient with all of my questions and helped ease any stresses I had during wedding planning."
