Andrea and Rusty

This is another one of my favorite couples this year! Here's their story of how they met and got engaged!

Andrea and Rusty met in Arkansas one night when they were out with friends. Rusty remembers seeing her in line waiting to go in and said he had to talk to that girl before the night was over! After being inside for awhile one of his friends asked Andrea to dance and while they were dancing he told her how Rusty wanted to talk to her, but wasn't sure if she would talk to him or not. Rusty eventually came up and talked to her and was trying to win her over by saying he "had a sports car that she should imagine myself in with the windows down going across the Memphis bridge." What Rusty didn't know was she was different than a lot of girls...and the fact that he had a sports car did not impress Andrea in the least. That is exactly what she told him. Andrea totally played hard to get for months and even his friends said whatever you are doing keep doing it cause we have never seen Rusty like a girl so much. He finally won her over when she saw the pictures the children in his class drew for him at his house. He worked with children with disabilities. They dated for a couple of months and eventually became a couple. Rusty believes when he saw Andrea it was love at first sight and she would some day be his wife, however the feelings weren't so much mutual until a while later! After about 4 years of being together Rusty proposed. It was right after Christmas and Andrea's family was in Atlanta visiting them and their close friends were at their house. Rusty made a steak dinner with wine and champagne for all of them. Andrea knew something was up, and kind of knew what he was up to... Rusty had put her ring in a Christmas stocking over their fireplace and told her how much he loved and cared for her. He told her to look inside of the Christmas stocking. He had put the ring inside the stocking. It was so meaningful that he wanted to share the moment with their family and friends. After getting engaged they went out with friends and family to celebrate!

The ever gorgeous Andrea.

So, the rest are formals. They are one of those couples that let me do whatever I wanted!!! Behind the venue was the coolest old factory so we shot there for a few minutes.

I absolutely loved her green shoes! How cute are they?
