Holly & Brian in McKinney, TX
Holly and Brian met at summer camp when they were both in high school. They stayed in touch as friends for eight years, then, one day during the Thanksgiving holiday break, they decided to date. “We both knew that it was time to finally be together forever,” says Holly. It wasn’t long before the two got engaged; Brian proposed just five months after they started their long-distance relationship.
The Bride Holly Porter, 25, a nanny
The Groom Brian Phillips, 25, a music producer
The Date October 3
One weekend, Brian got into town a few hours early. While Holly was still at work, he let himself into her apartment and decorated the entire front room with candles and roses. When Holly arrived home, Brian popped the question. The pair chose deep yellow, green, and brown as their wedding colors because they wanted a scheme that felt like fall without looking like a harvest.
