Cassidy Russell & Garrett Russell

How/where did you meet?

We met the second semester of my freshman year

Are there any special memories of you two on campus

For sure! My favorites are surprising him when he was studying in the library and putting balloons in his Jeep for his birthday while he was in class. Also, I loved meeting each other’s friends we made in college. They were all in our wedding!

What did the two of you do for fun/dates?

Our first date was at Mister James. But we spent many days on the farm road especially after we got our lab puppy.

How many years have you been together?

Getting close to 5 years
