A note from the Bride & Groom.

We know this year is very different than others. With the uncertainty of COVID-19, we will be going forth with the ceremony and reception and will follow the local guidelines on social gatherings based on our venue’s capacity maximum. If anything were to be postponed, it would be the seated dinner & reception. We are hopeful we will see you on 10/30/20 but in the event that our celebration is delayed, we will email you with the adjustment details. Please RSVP by September 20, 2020.

Until that time comes, we look forward to having you at our wedding celebration in St. Louis, Missouri! Please feel free to contact either of us if you have any questions!

Chris & Britney met on Saturday, September 14th, 2019, for a date after being matched on Facebook Dating. For their first date, they met in the parking lot at Starbucks, where they shared in introductions and great conversation. Britney & Chris continued their date with a 7+ mile hike at Castlewood State Park in Ballwin, Missouri that same morning. It was on that hike, during conversation at an overlook, where Chris knew that Britney was “The One”. Neither of them wanted to end the date after that 2.5-hour hike, so they finished their first date at Cooper’s Hawk restaurant where they grabbed lunch and talked about their personal testimonies and faith in the Lord.

From that point on, the relationship bloomed! Britney & Chris love cooking together and grilling, while spending time with their friends in social gatherings. It was only 7 weeks into their relationship when Chris met Britney’s parents and siblings in Dallas, TX for what they call the “Dallas Love Trip” …they flew Southwest into Love Field. Not long after that was when Britney and Chris flew to Arizona for Thanksgiving, so Britney could meet Chris’ family for the first time! Traveling is a priority they both share together, so they love taking Chris’ 4 kids on adventures together! Recent vacations include visiting Florida, Texas, Colorado, California, Arizona, and Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.

Britney & Chris are part of a church Small Group at McKnight Crossing where they have been diving into the Word together along with multiple Christian couples and church members. As followers of Christ being a strong value in their relationship, they attribute their marriage to Ecclesiastes 4:12, having Jesus Christ as their 3rd cord strand and helper.

Chris planned the wedding proposal to relive the entire first date, proposing on August 7th, 2020 at the same overlook at Castlewood where he knew Britney was the one from the start and followed with a surprise celebration and champagne congratulations at Cooper’s Hawk. Britney and Chris are excited about their new future together in love and marriage with Britney becoming the cherished “Bonus” Mom of his 4 children: Faith, Jedidiah, Judah, and Christian
