Barrett and Amy {Engagement – Part 1}

FILED IN: Engagements

So I know lately I have been starting almost all the blog posts by saying “This post is very special to me…” and I guess that’s because they all really are special to me since all my clients are so cool and end up becoming great friends. But this post really is extra special to me, David and I have known Amy since college, and she is a close friend to both of us. For those that know Amy, they know she is a bit of a wanderer….I don’t know that anybody knows the actual total number of times she has moved between now and college graduation, but let’s just say it’s a lot! So we all knew when she moved back to her native Minnesota (not Colorado or California) just in time for Winter, it had to be a special guy that was getting this girl to settle down. And Barrett is just that, a very special guy….here a little bit of their love story…

Last April Amy flew home to Minnesota for her and her friend’s annual April Birthday Bash. She was really excited that year because she was going to get to meet her sister Ashley’s boyfriend Brent, and double bonus Ashley decided to do a little matchmaking for Amy. The festivities began with dinner followed by a night on the town. It was during this night on the town that Amy started to take notice of a really nice boy…albeit not the boy Ashley was fixing her up with. For some reason he kept ending up next to her throughout the night, and as Amy says “…he was sitting awfully close to me on the couch
