Mattie and Luke married in the Kansas City Temple last August. They had their ring ceremony at her parent’s private home in Marble, Arkansas. This was a wedding I had been looking forward to for quite some time! Mattie is officially a Dotson! So excited to have her as part of the family!
Mattie saw Luke at a track meet, who was there watching his younger brother, Andy, compete. She asked Andy to give him her number and it all started with a text message. But June 17, 2010, was when he asked her to be his girlfriend. He took her to his mom’s classroom late one night. They had the tables pushed back and the computer playing country songs so they could two-step.
After 6 years of dating, he took her to go fishing on some family property. They had been at it for awhile when she got her line stuck in a tree and broke the spinner off. He told her to go back to the tackle box and there is a red one in the bottom. So she opened it up to find a ring box on the bottom but she was so confused because he was halfway around the pond! She thought maybe she wasn’t supposed to see it. So she kept yelling “I don’t see a red spinner!” ha ha! He ended up having to walk over there and pulled out the ring box, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! It was perfect for them!
Let’s start their day with the getting ready images! I love being able to capture my couple’s from the beginning of the day. Typically I arrive and start capturing details necessary to tell your unique story of your day!
Check back soon for the rest of their day!
