Where was your first date?: Our first date was in the country on the back of a tailgate listening to music.

Andrea and Chris - Centennial Park

How did you meet?: It was our first year in Architecture at the University of Tennessee Knoxville in our first class that consisted of maybe 12-15 people. He sat beside me on that first day of orientation probably because we were both huge nerds and exuded that nerd aura. Our professor, I remember him saying, " It's going to be a long five years in this program and this will be your family, some of you might even find your wife or husband here." 
We didn't know how true that would be until later. It's been 8 years.

Where was your first date?: We didn't exactly have a first date? We started out as really good friends and since our families both lived near Nashville, he drove me home the three hours back from university since I didn't have a car. We weren't "together" until maybe a year of being friends and it just sort of happened over the summer. Exams are tough and you realize who's there for you when you really need it,and I feel like we were always there for each other even before we started dating.

What was it about your Fiance that made you realize they were the one?  

Andrea: We've been together a long long time, through long distance, school, work, but I think the moment I realized that I wanted to be with my best friend forever was when we were just in bed, reading and telling jokes like normal.

Chris: It just fell into place, like the last piece of an amazing puzzle. We were together, sharing each others happiness as well as troubles. There were pieces that were difficult, and others that were easy. We just fit together so well. All of a sudden, we were complete.

Describe your Fiance in one word.

 Andrea: Weird

Chris: Weird-er

What is your favorite thing to do together?    Our favorite thing to do is probably traveling, dressing up as fictional characters at conventions, and watching shows together.

What song comes on the radio that makes you wanna dance?   Andrea: Electric Six - "Danger! High Voltage"

Chris: Well, Andrea said it. But the next best would be “Dance With Me Tonight” by Olly Murs

Haley and Jared - Arrington Vineyards

How did you meet?    Haley: We were set to attend the same college (Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois) and we were part of the "Blackburn College Class of 2016" Facebook group. Jared found me on there and messaged me and I didn't message back for 4 months because I forgot to respond. Once we both moved into our dorms, we finally met face-to-face outside of Hudson Hall on a bench. The bench became a significant part of our relationship through the years because of that first meeting. I had a boyfriend back home at the time and I did not realize that Jared liked me much more than a friend until his roommate, Aaron, told me so. Long story short, I friend zoned him real quick but we never stopped hanging out and this is what made Jared my best friend.

Where was your first date?: Our first official date was on July 17, 2015, at a Hibachi restaurant (our favorite) followed by a Springfield Sliders baseball game and the night ended with a trip to Cherry Berry Frozen Yogurt.

What was it about your Fiance that made you realize they were the one?     Haley: I knew he was the one when I saw how he works at our relationship. He doesn't let the bad times stay bad, he guides us to work together to get through it and come out stronger. I have no doubt in my mind that because we have conquered so much together already that we can truly make it through anything life throws at us.

Jared: I knew she was the one because I can't imagine my world without her being a part of it.

Describe your Fiance in one word    Haley: I would describe Jared as "passionate" because of how he treats our relationship and how he handles each day. He is always striving to be better and that applies to our relationship as well.

Jared: I would describe Haley as "unconditional" because she has always been there for me no matter what. Even when we were just friends, Haley was always there for me through the good and the bad.

What is your favorite thing to do together?    We have several things that we like doing together. Playing with our dog, Belle, is one of our favorites things! She is our pride and joy and we are expecting a second dog at the end of August named Rizzo! Other things include watching Netflix, watching/attending sporting events, trying new things, but mainly simply spending time together.

What song comes on the radio that makes you wanna dance?    Haley: Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake and Something I'm Good At by Brett Eldridge

Jared: Body Like a Backroad by Sam Hunt and Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake

Rebecca and Thomas  -  Travelers Rest Plantation

How did you meet?: We met at St.Anejo. Becca was there having drinks with girlfriends and Tom was out with his cousin visiting from England. He spotted Becca from across the room and it took him about an hour to get up the courage to say hi. He came over and said Hi, I'm Tom and you're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. Becca fell for his good looks and charm and it was love at first sight. We ended up talking the whole night and got engaged 6 months later!

Where was your first date?: Tom took me to the sounds game for our first date! We got a nice table overlooking the outfield and ended up talking the whole time! Instead of watching the game we just watched each other ! We don't even remember if they won or not lol!! After, we walked over to UP rooftop bar/lounge and shared a bottle of red wine while overlooking the Nashville skyline.It was the perfect ending to a great first date.

What was it about your Fiance that made you realize they were the one?  Becca fell in love with Tom because he is everything she ever wanted. She's always loved green eyes and a good sense of humor. Tom has Becca laughing constantly. She thinks he hilarious and it makes for a fun life!   The British accent is a plus too! 

Tom says Becca has a grace and elegance about her that made her know she was the one. He's always had a thing for dark skin and big brown eyes. The moment he saw Becca he knew she was the one.

Describe your Fiance in one word.

Becca's word for Tom- beautiful
Toms word for Becca - soulmate

What is your favorite thing to do together?: We love going out to eat!! Our favorite is Indian Food! A good chicken tikka masala hits the spot!

What song comes on the radio that makes you wanna dance?  vinyl- William Michael Morgan
