Lee & Jeffrey in Dallas, TX

Neither Lee nor Frank (Jeffrey) expected any romance to blossom during a night out with some friends. Both had recently gotten out of long-term relationships and neither was looking to embark on a new one. But as Lee puts it, “The minute we started talking, it was like the world stopped. We ignored everyone that night and spent the whole time talking.” The Bride Lee Sample, 25, retail manager The Groom Frank (Jeffrey) Nelson Jr., 26, owner of an insurance agency The Date April 23 The next morning, Lee called her mother and announced that she’d met the man she was going to marry. That afternoon, Jeffrey picked her up for their first date, taking her to his family’s ranch to see the horses. City girl Lee chose a cashmere sweater, designer jeans, and stiletto heels for her date attire but laughed her way through the farm date, and from then on, the two were a pair. On a surprise getaway to Lakeway in Austin, the couple were on Jeffrey’s boat when Lee suddenly looked to see him get down on one knee: “All I could do was start screaming!” she remembers. “Jeffrey told me later that he thought he’d done something wrong. He only knew everything was okay when I put on the ring.”
