When You Marry Your Best Friend | Garrett + Caroline

“In you, I’ve found the love of my life and my closest, truest friend.”

Have you ever known a couple whose souls connect in a way that truly feels like fate?  Who are not only in love with each other, but are truly the best of friends?

Garrett + Caroline are one of those special couples.  We are absolutely in love with how perfect they are for each other, and how they enjoy life together to the fullest–because life is amplified in every single way when you marry your best friend.

I interviewed Caroline all about her + Garrett’s story–all the way up to their wedding day.  All of the answers below are in her own words!

HOW DID YOU + GARRETT MEET?

We met when Garrett moved to Howe in 5th grade, but we have been best friends since high school.

HOW DID HE PROPOSE?

Garrett proposed on May 13, 2016 (Friday the 13th, in fact!) at our house. It was just the two of us, and we had just come back home from dinner. He and I had gone and looked at rings so I knew we would be getting engaged at some point, but I was still surprised. I had been cleaning and reorganizing several parts of our house, including his drawer in our dresser and his closet, and told him that I had found something special he was hiding … which wasn’t true! Anyways, scared that I had (or would find) the ring, he decided to propose that night instead of waiting to ask in front of all our family and friends at the Memorial Day party were going to have a couple of weeks from that night.  Really, it was perfect, and a long time coming.  Garrett has been my best friend since we were freshman in high school. I’m not sure why we waited so long 🙂

Garrett + Caroline planned their wedding for about 11 months, and finally sealed the deal on April 8, 2017 at THE SPRINGS Event Venue in Anna, TX–Tuscany Hill.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE SPRINGS?

For several reasons, but the most obvious is because it is GORGEOUS. Tuscany Hill is like nothing I had ever seen before, and is what wedding day dreams are made of. It’s a beautiful blank canvas that you can make your own!  Additionally, in the area, it is the only venue that can hold a large amount of people (we had 250 guests). Lastly, the staff is great–they will answer any question you have, any time of day.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR FUTURE COUPLES PLANNING A WEDDING?

1. Don’t stress! Everything will be ready by wedding day! And if it isn’t–it wasn’t meant to be.
2. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
3. Enjoy every minute of the day–this day will never happen again.
