These two Hoosier darlings met through mutual friends and had their first date over in my little town of Irvington at one of my favorite watering holes... Black Acre! I loved Marcy's story of how he proposed, and the little bio she wrote about their relationship today and about their little family. I wanted to share her thoughts with you as she put them into words so perfectly.
Their proposal story (as told by Marcy): By Christmas Day 2016 I was frustrated that we were not engaged, and that we weren't spending the holidays together (me in Fishers with my family, and Travis in Monticello with his). We planned to return to our house the day after Christmas. That day, I called him as I left my parents house, letting him know that I was on my way home. During this phone call Travis told me he was going to go hang out with one of his friends instead of coming home. I was upset... we hadn't seen each other in three days! Little did I know, my phone call signaled to Travis that I was out of my parents' house, and he could now head there to speak with my parents, and ask for my hand in marriage. Two days later was our third anniversary. To celebrate we went to the Corner Wine Bar in Broad Ripple, where we had our second date, and have returned to to celebrate every anniversary. I was wondering if Travis was going to propose, but didn't let myself get my hopes up. After we finished eating, he announced he had asked two of our friends to meet us out for a drink at another bar, and they were on their way to pick us up. I was a little disappointed that instead of some quality one-on-one time (and what seemed like no proposal) our third anniversary was turning into a double date, but I did not protest. After paying, Travis told me our friends were about to arrive and we walked outside. As we were "waiting", Travis got down on one knee and proposed with a ring he had designed with my twin sister. Then, while I am freaking out, six of our friends, including my twin come rushing from all angles around us wielding cameras. To celebrate, we headed to the Wellington where the bar tender had champagne waiting for us. We then went to my parents house for a surprise engagement party with both of our families.
Hobbies they like to do as a couple (as told by Marcy): We are margarita enthusiasts, and love to go to Revolucion in Fountain Square and La Mulita in SoBro to figure out how to perfect our own recipe. We have a 90 pound fur baby, Quincy, who constantly keeps us laughing. We often go to the gym together, and then ruin our efforts with ice cream as we binge watch our favorite shows: "The Newsroom", "Game of Thrones", and many others. We have several things about us that are unique, but what I think is most special is how each of us has grown so close to each other's family and friends, and how we genuinely enjoy spending time with them. A few examples include: making holiday wreaths with Travis's mom; camping with his parents and brother; Travis helping coach two of my nephews' baseball team for two seasons, and starting a fantasy football league with my sisters, brothers-in-law, and nephews; Travis has grown so close with my twin's husband, Kevin, that he is a groomsman, and one of my bridesmaids is the wife of Travis's best friend, and now a close friend of my own.
Favorite part about planning their wedding (as told by Marcy): EVERYTHING. As the fourth (and last) Trinkle daughter to get married, I've had a lot of practice in wedding planning! If you ask Travis, his favorite part is that I enjoy wedding planning and, therefore, he doesn't have to do much... but my favorite part has been how Travis wants everything to be a surprise. Not only does he not want to see or hear anything about my wedding dress, he doesn't even want to see what the bridesmaids are wearing. While we have made some decisions together, like the venues or food, and he knows what our color-scheme is, I know that on our wedding day Travis wants to be awe-struck by how beautiful, symbolic, or meaningful the day is, and if keeping (almost) everything a surprise will provide that for him, I'm happy to oblige.
So sweet, right!? I just love these two and I'm so happy to have been a part of not one, but now TWO Trinkle family weddings.
Cheers to the newlyweds!
