Forney Love Story

On June 28th we had the pleasure of marrying John and Cherri! The two of them and their sweet kiddos made braving the 101 temps a breeze. This family was seriously hilarious and it was clear they came to party and that they loved each other deeply. 

I asked Cherri and John to complete our Love Story Questionnaire and I am so excited to share their responses with you!

 

Cherri: 

 

  • How did you meet?

    Match.com

  • What did you first think of John?

    I found him attractive which was different for me because he was nothing like the men I usually dated.

  • How did you start dating?

    We messaged back and forth for about a week then met up for a drink, then he braved the lions den and went to my best friends house! 

  • How did you know that John was the right one for you?

    I knew that he was the right one for me because he was so patient and understanding with me. He never tried to pressure me and took things slow at my pace!!!

  • How would you describe the dynamic of your relationship? How would others describe it?

    I honestly believe John is the love of my life. He allows me to be my true awkward and nerdy self and loves me regardless. We are perfect for each other! There is a great balance. Others would say the same, we are very full of life and love to laugh and sit back with a drink and enjoy life.

  • Tell me three things you love about John?

    He makes me feel safe and secure for the first time ever in my life. He is very transparent with me! He is great at communicating. He is a leader who loves to  talk about everything, good and bad!

  • What are some of John's quirks? What are things about John that drives you a little crazy — things that only you could love.

    He is the most impatient driver I have ever met! I thought I was bad but he puts me to shame!

  • How did the proposal happen?

    We were building our new home and he brought me to the house thinking we were taking measurements for furniture, Then he got down on one knee and proposed! It was perfect!

  • Name three memorable experiences you’ve been through together as a couple.

    1. Jamaica- we took a week long trip alone as a new couple and it was great! I wish I had more secluded time with him. 2. Our first Christmas as a blended family! We are starting new traditions, we even wore matching pjs with our girls. 3. Building our forever home together! It was a lot of work but coming together as one to create the perfect home is something I will always cherish.

  • What values are important to you as a couple?

    Trust, communication, loyalty, respect, transparency.

  • Where do you see yourselves in five years? What are you most looking forward to in your future as a couple?

    In 5 years I see us enjoying our home and each other just as much as we do now if not more!

  • If you were reading this blog post in twenty years, what would you want to remember about your life right now?

    How happy I am to have found someone so amazing and perfect!

    We have so much in common and our life goals are so similar, plus she is smoking hot and has a great sense of herself, which, all rolled into one, makes for the perfect woman!
