Meet Christen & Clayton | Kendal Perry

Hello loves!

Meet Christen & Clayton! These two are getting married at their family’s estate in November and I couldn’t be more excited!

When Christen told me about how she and Clayton met, I couldn’t help but laugh just a bit! They met during their nursing program at UAB very “romantically” (she says) at a Nursing home.  Christen was sitting in her car trying to study and finish some homework before class began when Clayton pulled up, got out of his car, and came over to talk to her. She said it wasn’t quite love at first sight but she knew immediately that they would be apart of each other’s lives forever. She went home and told her family that she met a guy named Clayton who would be a lifelong friend, which is now absolutely precious as they move into this season of engagement.

Christen and Clayton immediately started making memories together throughout their time spent together at school. Any time they had a break, they would take a quick trip to the beach even if it was just for a day! Clayton decided he wanted to propose to Christen at the beach during one of their day trips. Well, as usual, girls are not too good with surprises or sometimes taking hints! Christen told him no and that she rather stay at home and paint their house. Clayton had to quickly come up with a Plan B which was just as perfect as his Plan A. He decided to cook her dinner and set up her backyard for her dream proposal. As he told her to shut her eyes, she asked if she was getting a kitten! Which wouldn’t have been so bad, but a diamond is way better!

Usually I take what my bride’s write and put it into my own words but there was nothing better than Christen’s words when she told me about what she is looking forward to on her wedding day. Most people say they are excited to celebrate with their family and friends but Christen said she cannot wait for her vows to be said to Clayton. She wrote, “There is just something intimidating about that walk. But the thought of seeing him and vowing to choose love with him everyday for the rest of our lives makes the walk worth it. When you find a man as loyal and honorable as Clayton, a lifetime doesn’t sound so bad. The food at the reception isn’t going to be half bad either.”  How precious are they!?

I cannot wait to see these two finally become husband and wife! Christen and Clayton, you two are a hoot!
