Kristen & Brandon:
We are always honored when couples choose us to capture their day! We secretly love finding out about their “story” & how destiny brought them together! Kristen & Brandon have one of the cutest stories we’ve ever heard! Brandon talks about how they met with a big smile on his face, “We met while working at Gordmans at only 16 years old. I was working the stockroom at the time & Kristen was on the Sales Floor decorating for the upcoming holiday season. Kristen, at only 5ft tall, was tasked with getting the oversized 6ft wreaths from the stockroom & taking them to their designated places in the store. When she walked back there, I immediately looked to my coworker & said “dibs”! And dibs I got as we often were scheduled to go on lunches & breaks together on most workdays by coincidence. What started as small talk, grew into playful or silly arguments about who was “better” than the other, & ultimately we ended up on a date/not date for dinner & a movie. Being the smart cool dude I was, I thought nothing would be more romantic than seeing the western “True Grit”. She must have enjoyed something about the night though as we both were texting a mutual friend about the date/not date who was screenshotting our conversations & sending them to the other. We both knew the other was interested, but Kristen was the first to make a move. On January 16th, 2011 we became Facebook official & our young love story began.”
OMG Tell us about all the deets!!! How did it happen!!? “I proposed to Kristen at an escape room in Norman called Cracked. I wanted to do something unique that incorporated something with her new job. I thought tracking down clues, & solving a crime involving the heist of expensive artwork would be a fun way to do that. I organized the proposal with the escape room several weeks ahead of time & they said they would incorporate the ring into the puzzle & that it would be the “solution” to the crime. I wanted it to be a surprise so I didn’t tell very many people about it. Cracked told us we could have up to 6 people in the room so I invited both of our parents to be there for the moment. As we were in the room (which is a timed event) we immediately started solving the crime. I was already nervous, but when we were almost out of time I began to sweat. However, Kristen was able to solve the mystery & in her excitement didn’t even realize what was happening. I grabbed the ring from her, got down on one knee, & she exclaimed, “you’re funny,…. of course”. Which I guess is “yes” in her own special way!”
Ok, Kristen, did you suspect anything????!! How did it all go down? “We have been together for a while, over 6 years, so we have talked about marriage, spending our lives together, & how many cats & dogs we would have, but I honestly did NOT expect him to propose that day! He had asked me what kind of a ring I would like & we had looked at a few, but I really had NO clue he had bought a ring or had even been shopping for one. We were trying to complete the escape room & I was yelling the final clue across the room when he asked! I was so excited about finishing the room & him proposing that I said “You’re funny, of course” & started rambling on about where the last clue was hidden! He had a dinner planned with both of our families after that & it was perfect. He really surprised me & it felt like a scene out of a movie!”
