HOW WE MET: In February of 2017, RuthAnne was brought on as an administrative assistant at Neace Ventures. She was warned that Aaron was a know-it-all and a bit of a jerk and that their personalities would clash; however, the two quickly bonded, if for no other reason because their desks were 5 feet from each other. Although they thought, without ever even talking about it, they would never date the other, they were both smitten.

He awkwardly revealed his feelings for RuthAnne at her favorite lunch spot – Chic-fil-A. Eleven months later, they were engaged. Twelve months after that, they were married. 

Our wedding was… Beautiful. We had hoped for everything to go perfectly, but we couldn’t have anticipated just how great everything went. The Mass was solemn and respectful of the sacrament taking place. The sermon pulled no punches in communicating the significance of the contract we were entering into with each other. The weather was perfect. The food was delicious. The music was both classy and fun. Friends, family and benefactors alike all had an amazing time celebrating with us. The only bump in the road was that the wedding rings were left at the hotel, and one of the groomsmen and bridesmaids drove like maniacs between the church and the hotel in order to make it back in time for Aaron to get to the sacristy behind the altar.

Marriage is… a sacrament. First and foremost we hope to help make each other holier and more virtuous people. We want to get each other to heaven. We pray we will have many children. We hope to avoid some of the trappings of modern life. We would like to spend less of our lives in front of screens and more time in good books, nature and prayer.
