I think I have known Brennon for about as long as I can remember. We both went to the same church growing up, but he was two grades older so there wasn't much communication; just some loving from a distance.
When I was in eight grade, I got enough courage to ask Brennon, a tenth grader, to the softball banquet, and with the approval of his mother, he said YES.
We then became boyfriend and girlfriend and i would love to say that we've been together ever since, but that wasn't the case.
Both attending the University of Memphis, we started dating again when I got to college and dated for seven years before he asked me to be his wife. SEVEN years!
Our marriage got off to an interesting start. Our beautiful wedding venue, the setting for what would be the best day of our lives, burned to the ground. This news came just seven days before our wedding. The roller coaster of emotions that we went through together that week and the way we overcame the unfortunate event, helped to clarify what I really wanted to do in life. I wanted to recreate that special moment that I experienced, and give it to others.
Thus became BettsMade.
