From The Bride: We met at the gym. Actually...we met at Chris’s gym, and between mixed signals and flirting Chris convinced Haley to go to Orange Leaf after boot camp one day! But the love story started before hand. Chris (being the trainer) noticed Haley’s car outside of a restaurant and (being the trainer) sent her a motivational text to ensure she was staying on track. Of course they were at different places in the same plaza they were both headed to a similar location...the outdoors! Haley was headed to Red River Gorge and Chris was going to O’Bannon woods. When they got back they kept talking and finally they went out for frozen yogurt. Our relationship started out balanced around exercising with gym dates and boot camp sessions (Chris even got Haley to run some half marathons) but all those sessions did were create a bond. It may not be a regular bond but it created a safe space for them both and their guards could fall down and they could learn more about each other. That first summer was spent by the pool, outside, and in the gym. As our relationship progressed we found out how easy it was to make things work and grew closer. Haley knew Chris was special when she went to Italy with some girlfriends and constantly missed him. Chris knew Haley was special when he found out she loved being outside and in the country-so very early on in the relationship. This special feeling turned from infatuation to love over the first few months. The unyielding support that we give each other is apparent. Ones success is the others success. Haley has always been with Chris at any race or event he does and Chris is always eager to help or support Haley in anything she may need. In the fall of 2018, after living with each other for several months Chris was finally ready to be the man that Haley thought he was and proposed. Hijacking family photos for the Harper family Chris made a memorable weekend for his future bride.

      After taking a trip to gatlinburg in the fall of 2018 for Chris’s 30th birthday, Haley fell in love with the mountains and wanted a destination wedding. Chris and Haley went to Gatlinburg one cold weekend in January of 2019 and found Parkside Resort. A beautiful resort on the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, they found the perfect venue! On December 7, 2019 the big day had arrived and Chris and Haley tied the knot in the best way possible for the best couple. Chris and Haley first started talking when they were in the outdoors. Chris and Haley were engaged in the outdoors. Chris and Haley were married in the outdoors. It seems a common theme that we love the outdoors. We’ve been together for almost four years and in that time we both have grown and changed some views but the one view that remains is that we would do anything and everything to support our partner, our best friend, and our soul mate. We believe that our very first encounter wasn’t by chance but there was definitely a guardian angel looking over us and guiding us so we could find the person we were meant to be with.
