The Funny Thing About Fate

In 2013, Crystal said goodbye to her fast-paced east coast life for a fresh start in Dallas, TX. Little did she know, she had traveled over 1,500 miles to meet her match. That’s the funny thing about fate. It finds you when you’re busy making other plans.

Too occupied with their careers to form meaningful connections after work or on the weekends, Crystal and Steven found each other online in 2014. Their cyber courtship quickly blossomed into an undeniable bond–one grounded in friendship, family, and, most importantly, God. By their third date, after they attended church together, Steven knew Crystal was “the one.”

Together the two traveled the world, became parents to their pup, Cooper, and continued to create memories. One Sunday morning, on their way to service,Crystal walked out of her room to find Steven on bended knee. After squealing and running back into the bedroom, she returned to emphatically answer, “Yes!”

They couldn’t be more excited for their future together. Because when fate (and faith!) finds you, the heart follows.

Crystal and Steven later tied the knot on April 3rd, 2016 in Dallas, TX.
