how they met
From Alyssa Brooke Photo: In the summer of 2017, Allie and Garrett sat across a bonfire with friends and met for the first time. Garrett will say they locked eyes across the fire, while Allie says she just likes looking at fire. Although they didn't speak for a month or so after that, they reconnected at their life group, bonding over shared struggles they had with dating. A few days later, Garrett asked Allie to coffee and the rest is history!
Through it all
Their sweet love did not come without challenges. Even when they feared the relationship would fall apart over the stress of their individual lives, they continued to trust, have faith, and give it their best by simply showing up for each other. After 10 months of doing life together, Garrett proposed on their anniversary!
