Made by the bride's mother
Jill & Randy in Fort Worth, TX
Jill and Randy knew each other in junior high but didn't start dating until two years after graduation -- college graduation. But once they reconnected, the couple couldn't get enough of each other.
The Bride Jill Carlton, 27, high school art teacher
The Groom Randy Hall, 26, banker
The Date June 14
"That night, it was pretty much love at second sight," says Jill. "I know, pretty corny, but we just knew!" In fact, they were so sure they were meant to be that they got engaged after just three months of dating! The proposal went down on a seemingly random night when Randy came home from work and told Jill he had a surprise for her. She started crying when he pulled out the Louis Vuitton purse she had been lusting after. Jill was so excited about the bag, she didn’t even think to look inside, so Randy nervously suggested she take a peek. Seconds later, Jill shed even more tears as she felt a little ring box at the bottom of the purse and Randy got down on one knee. For their wedding exactly one year later Jill and Randy wanted a modern, formal look, so they chose The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for their venue and a black and ivory color scheme with silver and eggplant accents.
