Searcy natives Estus Glosser and Richard Stacy got married Dec. 15, 2012. Laura Stricklin Photography was kind enough to send us their engagement shots from the University of Central Arkansas campus, as well as their love story. Stay tuned for the wedding pictures!
Estus and Richard met at a mutual friend's house where they spent the evening getting to know each other. Richard took a chance and friended Estus on Facebook. And, as we all know, when you are friended on Facebook, it’s serious.
At the time, Estus worked nights at the hospital and despite Richard’s early morning rises to work, he would text Estus all through the night, wanting to know more and more about Estus with each text.
Richard took another chance and asked Estus on a formal date. Estus was still shy to the thought of actually dating as they had become such close friends, so she asked for a little more time as friends. Richard knew she would be worth the wait.
After many weekend hangouts, Richard’s birthday rolled around and Estus knew she couldn’t wait any longer or she would lose the love of her life forever. She admitted to Richard she would like to go on a formal date.
Richard jumped at the opportunity and they went out for some good food and a movie. That very next Thursday, Richard surprised her with a beautiful, red long-stemmed rose -- the rose which happened to be the flower choice of their wedding. After several months of dating, Richard confessed his love and then... he went to Jared’s!
