Elizabeth and Craig

12/14/2011


I am so excited for this adorable couple!  They will be getting married on New Year’s Eve at the Biltmore Estate, and it is going to be a spectacular event!  Elizabeth and Craig have been dating for 5 years now, so not only are they a great couple, but they are best friends.  Love it!  Read more about these precious people…
How did you meet each other?
We met in middle school. Our first outing was our high school Christmas Banquet. We don’t count it as our first date because we were too shy to really during and we didn’t really hang out after.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
He proposed June 22, 2011. He had a couple of our good friends fill the old barn at our house with candles and they had the ring on the windowsill surrounded by candles. It was at night so the barn stood out in the darkness and it was beautiful. We walked down to the barn from my house and took me in the barn and proposed. Our friends were still there and took some post pictures and celebrated with us. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

What do you two do for a living?
At the moment we are both still in school but Craig will be an Officer in the Army after we graduate and my plans are still unsure.

What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?

Hiking, trying new restaurants, cooking, watching and going to Clemson football games, reading, going to movies.

Why did you choose the Lioncrest at The Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
A friend showed me some amazing pictures of other weddings there and I was sold. I didn’t want to look anywhere else… thankfully it was available! ☺
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
The shoes I will be wearing and the party/ reception. I love when people get together to eat wonderful food and celebrate good times.

What do you love about each other?
Elizabeth: What I love about Craig is… How dedicated he is to what is important to him, preparing for the Army, how hard he works at school, me ☺. I love his quirky humor and how he loves to teach people random science facts.
Craig: What I love about Elizabeth is… her sense of humor, kind-heartedness towards others, and the way her laughter makes everyone in the room happy. She will make a great mother some day and I can’t see myself raising a family with anyone else. She is also a great cook!

    We love Craig and Lizzie so much. It has been fun to watch them grow-up together. When we are together as a family you can tell they are best friends and that they care deeply for each other and their respective families. Lizzie brings joy, laughter, sincerity and fun to our family. We are so thankful to have her and our other “daughter”,Sarah, join our family this year!!!!!! We love you!!!
    Joe, Liz, Alan, Michael, Thomas and Sarah Johnson 🙂

    Craig and Lizzie, I enjoyed reviewing the information and the very nice pictures of a good looking Christian couple. Claire is in South Carolina today so I decided to respond to the “blog” notes. Claire will see your information and pictures when she gets home. We have our plans set to be in Asheville for your wedding weekend. Since we have all seen snow and slick roads before, let us agree to pass on these weather conditions that week end. God bless your upcoming marriage and a lifetime together.
