Our Story

Colton and Jordan met in the 6th grade at Immanuel Lutheran School.  He always had a bit of a crush on her, but she only thought of him as a friend.  They started dating during their freshman year at Giddings High School.  He asked her out for Valentine’s Day!  Their first date consisted of dinner and a movie, and he gave her a heart shaped box of chocolates.  From that moment on they were inseparable!  In high school they were both in band together; she played flute, he played the tuba.  She was a competitive powerlifter and school mascot, while he played football and basketball. 

During the fall semester of their senior year, they both were accepted to Texas A&M University.  She was ecstatic, but he was a little dubious (he had been a UT fan for the majority of his life).  One year later they both took the journey to College Station to start a new chapter in their life.  He joined the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band, and she joined the Texas A&M Powerlifting Team.  She chose to major in Computer Engineering, and he chose Electrical Systems Engineering Technologies.

During their junior year, Jordan was offered an internship with ExxonMobil’s IT Company for the Summer of 2014.  They decided together that it would be a good opportunity for her, and she moved down to Houston May of 2014.  As the summer drew to a close, Colton had a special kind of surprise in mind.  He proposed to Jordan in her apartment on August 12, 2014.  When she came home from work that afternoon, she found a handwritten letter from him, just like the ones he used to write her in high school.  He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.  She said yes!

They have set their wedding date for December 26, 2015.  They both have always loved the Christmas season, and have always wanted a Christmas wedding.  She will graduate in December 2015, and his graduation date is set for May 2017.  Jordan will begin her full-time job with ExxonMobil's IT company on February 3, 2016.  They will live together in Montgomery, TX, and Colton will continue his education at Texas A&M.
