We are so excited to be sharing the engagement story of our amazing J.Starr Couple ~ Tori and Connor! We are finalizing all the beautiful details for their big day (that is approaching fast!) but we wanted to take a moment to share a little bit more about this amazing couple and their sweet engagement.
Tori and Connor's love story began their junior year of high school in 2006 when they met in one of their classes. Tori's first impression of her future husband was "OH, he's cute!! (literally, that simple!)". After many years, Connor finally texted Tori on November 8, 2011 to be his girlfriend...conveniently while she was on her way to his house...but apparently he couldn't wait!
Tori and Connor dated a total of 6 years before the engagement and on their wedding day they will have been together for 7 years and 2 days exactly! Tori tells us that she knew Connor was the one she wanted to marry the moment she first laid eyes on him; she just knew. As with all relationships, it was not all rainbows and unicorns. Within their first 5 years of knowing each other, the couple experienced what could possibly be the most ups and downs ever. However Tori and Connor believe those experiences molded them into the couple they are now and they couldn't be happier!
The engagement for this amazing couple occurred on Christmas Eve 2017 at their home. Connor tried to make it a surprise but Tori claims she screwed it up for him. She was headed back from dinner at her grandparents house on Christmas Eve and she generally texts Connor when she is on her way home, except for that one time of course! When Tori arrived home and went inside, Connor was nowhere to be found. Tori tells us she went on my merry way grabbing the bags of presents that she had left in the downstairs bathroom and then magically, Connor appears! So, there he goes, gettin' down on one knee and proposing to Tori (not in the suit that he had planned to wear, but in Tori's least favorite of all time workout shirt of his) and all Tori remembers saying was, "Oh my gosh, YES!! But do we have to do this while I'm standing in the bathroom?!". But in the end, the couple has a great story behind it all and will remember it forever!
Tori tells us that what matters most about finally getting married is the fact that they are finally here! Tori has been dreaming of this since she first met him...he just needed the time to figure it out ;)
Thank you for sharing your story with us Tori! We are so excited for your special day!
