Paige and Chris will be getting married on November 24th and we'll have photos of the wedding for you as soon as we get them!
Here's their winning entry, as decided by our voters:
In February 2002, I was a cheerleader at Lambuth University. Chris Smith had volunteered to help us out. I turned around at practice one day and I saw him with one of my squad members held above his head like she was a rag doll or something. He was so handsome that I had to look away because I was blushing. So time went by, and I admired the new guy from afar because surely he had a girlfriend. Well, he didn't. Somehow, my friend figured out that I had a thing for the new guy. She told him. I was so humiliated that my friend would rat me out that I just stared at him. It was awkward, but he would still try to talk to me. Pretty soon I could answer him when he said, "hello." I really liked him. Then, he asked me to go to a movie! So, of course, I said yes. At the end of the fabulous evening I found myself wrapped up in a big hug followed by the sweetest little kiss ever. Chris and I would be separated at the end of the school year because I decided to leave Lambuth and go to nursing school in Memphis. It was a difficult four years but now we have our degrees and finally each other. I can't imagine ever being without him. Chris asked me to marry him on December 23, 2005 and I said "yes!" We are planning to marry in June 2007.Winning the Mid-South's dream wedding would be a dream come true. Chris and I are so excited to be sharing our story and hope that we are chosen so that our wedding day can be as beautiful as it is in our dreams.
