Our Story

After who knows how many years of friends/dating, it's finally official!
We're getting married!
For those of you who don't know, we have known each other for years. We met when we were in Jr. High when we both started ballroom dance where Todd's mom taught. Over the years we became good friends. After graduating high school, we both headed up to BYU-Idaho where we dated a little before Todd left on his mission to Missouri for two years. While on his mission, we wrote each other "AS FRIENDS" (at least that's what Whitney says). In October of 2007 Todd returned home and by December we knew that we both cared about each other more than just friends. We started dating in the beginning of December for about a month before Todd left to go back up to BYU-Idaho where he finished up another year of schooling. Those 7months were filled with quite a few phone calls, a few text messages over the limit, a couple trips to Idaho for Whitney and a trip to Pennsylvania for Todd (Whitney's Family reunion).
Todd finally came home in the middle of July. 5 weeks later it was official!
Todd proposed on August 22, 2008 after a wonderful dinner, and a nice walk through the park. It was perfect for the two casual people we are! That leads us to today! After much deliberation we have finally picked a date and stuck with it. We are sealing the deal on November 1, 2008, in the Oakland California Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are extremely excited to start this journey together and are grateful for the love and support each of you continually give us.
