"I always dreamed of the way God would introduce me to my future husband and thought it would be the Disney version of love at first sight. But as always, God's plan was much better!"
"For Joel and Lindsay it was not love at first sight. In fact, they were set up by Lindsay's mother and Joel's aunt. At first, Lindsay was not at all interested in meeting Joel. She even asked her mother, "How desperate do you think I am that I need to be set up?" Lindsay's resistance calmed while her curiosity increased. Soon after, Joel friended her on Facebook and then set up their first date. It was back in 2011 and a very large blizzard was covering Kansas City. Lindsay was still hesitant and tried to back out by offering to reschedule, but Joel was adamant that he would be picking her up regardless of the storm! He told her that he had a big diesel truck that could get through anything! "Well, it was a very good thing he did insist, because even though half of the activities he planned were closed due to the weather, we had the best time! I had to admit, it was the easiest first date I had ever been on!"
A year and half later, Joel gave Lindsay her fairytale proposal complete with a very beautiful diamond engagement ring!
Joel and Lindsay's happily ever after fairytale wedding was held at the Elm's Hotel and Spa in Excelsior Springs, MO.
