Kelby & Dustin

Our Story

How did the couple meet? I, Kelby, was new to Lubbock from Dallas. I actually was on tinder to try and just meet people. I matched with Dustin and we hit it off. We messaged back and forth for a few weeks before finally meeting. The first time I saw him I knew he was it for me. Our first date lasted three days and consisted of a flood, a couple barbecues, meeting his mom, and lots of talking and connecting with one another.

What is the couples proposal story? We had been talking about getting married for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right, and we never had the funds. It was our second anniversary, we had just found out I was pregnant about a month before. Dustin was so supportive and excited and all he wanted to do was make our family complete. We were relaxing at home after a long day at work, I was curled up in a chair trying to fight off morning sickness. He had been pacing around the house since we had gotten home. He finally stopped, and teary eyed (which is soo not normal for him) he got down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and how much I meant and how much it made him happy to be starting a family together. He asked me to spend forever with him and I obviously said yes!!

Why do you feel the couple deserves to win a wedding? While we don’t have it terrible, we have had quite a bit of financial barriers when it comes to planning a wedding. Our little boy has some ongoing medical issues that is forcing us to severely delay our union. We just want to be married so we can be a family and United for the rest of our lives. We have so much love for one another and to be blessed with a wedding where we wont have to worry about finances would be invaluable. We are currently using all of our wedding funds to try and make sure we get our baby healthy, and as of now the wedding has been put on hold for at least a few years.
