St. Vincent, Ark. resident Bethany Gunderman and Michael Roberts of Russellville will exchange vows on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in St. Vincent.
Check out these beautiful photos by Melissa McCrotty Photography and read their sweet engagement story as told by Bethany:
We had been dating for nearly two years, and had decided to take a spring break cruise to the Caribbean. We were getting ready for formal night events, which typically involves getting dressed up and taking pictures, followed by a formal dinner in the ship's dining room. Mike was insisting that we go to the deck before dinner to catch the sunset, but since I had just fixed my hair, I wanted to take pictures first. On the way to dinner, we stopped at a photo backdrop, took a few run-of-the-mill pictures. At that point, he asked the photographer if we could do one more. He, then, got down on one knee and popped the question, with, what seemed like, half the ship watching. Of course I said, “yes!” It was absolutely, perfect and we were able to get some really amazing, fun pictures.
After the holidays and crazy wedding planning, or if you're thinking an engagement is on the horizon, a mid-winter getaway might be just what you need to de-stress and take it easy.

Conway resident Tiffanee Samples and Ryan Miller of Cabot will exchange vows May 10, 2014 at Loft 1023 in Little Rock.
Check out these beautiful photos by Sterling Imageworks and read their sweet engagement story as told by Tiffanee:
Ryan and I are high school sweethearts but like most high school sweethearts, we broke up in the summer he was leaving for college. After being a part, we quickly realized we missed each other. When we got back together, Ryan thought we should "subtract our break up" since we were not technically dating. So, June 8 was our new anniversary date. On the morning of our anniversary, Ryan brought me breakfast in bed, flowers and a sweet card. After watching "Now You See Me," we went to dinner at Copeland's. Since high school, I have been asking Ryan to take me to the Big Dam Bridge. When we got there, it was crowded so we decided to go to the Twin Rivers Bridge. The sun was setting and it was perfect. We started walking the tail and found a cozy spot beside the water to watch the sunset. I made a joke “What if you have really bad math and this is not our anniversary?” He then said “I know how you will remember today” and as I turned around he was on one knee asking me to marry him!

Baton Rouge, La. resident Carla Hugg and Ryan Moss of Atlanta will exchange vows May 17, 2014 at Old Main on the campus of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
Check out these beautiful photos by Jason Hudson with The Hudsons Photography and read their sweet engagement story as told by Carla:
Ryan was in Baton Rouge for Bayou Country Superfest. I picked him up from the airport that morning and when we went to lunch together that day, he was acting completely normal. He even came to my office to visit with my co-workers and totally kept his cool.
When I got off work, he was with Peanut (my precious Chihuahua) on my couch. I asked him if he would take Peanut outside for me. When they came back inside, I was in my hallway bathroom and when I opened the door, Peanut zoomed by in a new blue T-shirt. While this may be shocking to most, not to me. I dress Peanut up all the time and Ryan told me he found a sample tee at his work for Peanut. Peanut being Peanut, ran straight under my bed and wouldn't come out. Ryan and I were on our hands and knees trying to get him to come out so I can see his new shirt. The entire time Ryan is trying to hide the ring. Peanut eventually came out, ran around the room a few times, and when we grabbed him I was surprised to see "Will you marry me?" on his little back. I can't tell you too much that happened after that, except I said "Yes!" and it was the greatest moment of our lives.
