Last weekend we celebrated the wedding of our best friends Morgan Smith and Chris McMullen! Our story is so cool and I love to tell it!
Morgan and Bryan both grew up in Shreveport and have known each other since 1st grade. The story Morgan likes to tell is that in 1st grade, Bryan tried to kiss her by the water fountain and she slapped him! They've been best friends ever since! Morgan went to college at Baylor in Waco and Bryan went to college at ETBU in Marshall.
Fast forward to my senior year. Chris and I were friends again and when prom rolled around, I didn't have anyone from my school that I wanted to go with, so what did I do? Well, since I'm a glutton for punishment, I asked Chris to prom again! I figured, he's definitely grown up and way more mature this year, so we'll have a great time!
The summer after Chris's first year at Tech, he came back to Waco and took a summer school class at MCC. It was in that class that Chris met Morgan, who was also taking the same class. They soon began dating and Chris introduced me to Morgan when I came to Waco. We instantly became best friends!
Fast forward a year or two, and I went to visit Morgan one weekend in Waco where she was going to grad school at Baylor. I began complaining that I hadn't been on a date in forever, she told me about her best friend Bryan, and said she would set up a blind date for us. Well, you all know how that story ended! :)
Bryan and I got married June 27, 2009 and Morgan and Chris were a bridesmaid/groomsmen in our wedding. Ironic thing was, they were broken up at the time! Good news though, God brought them back together again and Chris proposed last December.
They asked Bryan and I to be in their wedding and we were so excited to celebrate with them! They got married at Ashton Gardens in Denton, TX and it was so beautiful!
My mom was awesome and tagged along with us so she could watch Abigail while we fulfilled our wedding duties! We had so much fun and are so incredibly happy for our best friends as they begin their lives together!
