Hey friends! It's only fair that we share our love story since we will most definitely ask to hear yours :) We first met at Western Kentucky University where we were both swimmers on the swim team. We started out as best friends and hung out non-stop. It was the classic "fell in love with your best friend" story and we officially started dating in 2014 at the start of Andrea's sophomore/Chris's junior year. That same school year, our swim team unfortunately got cut and Andrea decided to transfer to San Diego State to continue swimming/school while Chris stayed to finish school at WKU. We did two years of cross-country long distance (2,167.4 miles long distance to be exact)!! It was tough, don't get us wrong, but man did we learn a lot during that time. Even far far apart, we grew deeper in love as the years went on. It's cliche... but distance really does make the heart grow fonder! After Andrea graduated, she moved to Knoxville where Chris was in grad school at UT and we were finally reunited forever!
Chris proposed in August 2018 during a "photography lesson from our friend" and on October 4th, 2019 we got married at Holy Ghost Catholic Church and our reception was held at The Standard in Downtown Knoxville (best day ever)! We have been happily married ever since and have one sweet little rescue pup named Luna. Some of our favorite activities to do together include tailgating and cheering on the Volunteers, going out to our favorite Mexican restaurant to eat way too many chips dipped in queso, and watching some good ole guilty pleasure reality TV. We love to travel and recently just went on two big trips - Amsterdam and a full blown African safari (it was literally WILD)!!
