Ella and Brendan met in 2015 sitting in the high school band hall. Ella was selling Girl Scout cookies and Brendan ordered Tagalongs! After getting her phone number (because of the cookie order), he asked her on a date to Freebirds World Burrito and the movie theatre. Their first date was on Valentine’s Day 2015.
When Brendan decided to propose in February 2021; before making any concrete plans, he asked Ella’s parents for their blessing. The ring was not actually his idea… he planned on buying a ring from a local jeweler in Mississippi (where they were students). However, Ella’s mom offered her grandmother’s wedding set to the couple. After switching the original stone for a white sapphire (and turning the original diamond into a necklace for Ella’s grandma), Brendan drove to Memphis, TN, to meet his mom there who delivered the ring. The proposal itself took place in Gulf Shores, Alabama on the beach, a place very sentimental to Ella. Along for the ride were another couple friend of theirs, Micah and Ashley, who helped keep the real meaning of the trip a secret for the month of planning. It happened at sunset virtually in the water. There were cheers from condo balconies nearby! Ella of course said YES!!
They chose the Ranch as their wedding venue and you can never go wrong with The Springs! Ella and Brendan kept things traditional and he didn’t see her until her dad was escorting her down the aisle. He had the biggest smile on his face. They exchanged vows and rings then it was finally time for the kiss.
They enjoyed mingling with their guests and all the guests enjoyed the dance floor. It was a wonderful night and a perfect day for these two.
