Congratulations Christina and Rodney! What a cute couple they are! So, so sweet on each other. They met as freshmen at Western Michigan University, at a party. They had a lunch date in one of the dorms, and stayed together for eight years. The ups and downs that everyone faces as a couple only made them that much stronger. They moved to Atlanta in 2015. Big city livin' and sunshine! Getting acclimated to a new city without their friends and family was challenging, but they have always been better together and saw it through.
Rodney proposed on Friday the 13th (spooky). They were with both families at their favorite restaurant, Martel's. She had no idea what was coming. They were waiting on Rodney's brother to show up, and Rodney was so anxious and nervous that as soon as he did, he popped up and proposed right away.
They had a theme at McKay - a mix of Great Gatsby, prohibition, etc. (due to their love for expanding their wine and bourbon knowledge). It was truly beautiful. I knew as soon as I entered the guys room at the beginning of the day that I would be laughing for the rest of it. This was a great group of people.
I'm very honored to document Christina and Rodney's story. Enjoy the preview!
