The Local Bride: Getting to Know You

Hey there, brides-to-be! I’m Kara.

I’ve written for San Antonio Weddings for a few years now, and I’ve recently been asked to be the magazine’s resident bride because…I’m getting married!

Clinton, my awesome fiancé, popped the question on a trip to Boston this past fall. We’ve known each other since we were 14 and went to high school together. We became close friends our senior year and (finally) started dating sophomore year of college.

He proposed the first night in town after we had dinner on the Boston harbor. Although we’ve been dating for seven years, when he got down on one knee, I swear it was the shock of my life! I was not prepared, to say the least. I don’t even remember what I said exactly (besides yes, of course). The moment was one happy blur. We were able to enjoy Boston and Salem the next few days of our vacation as fiancés. I’d always wanted to visit New England, and now it will forever be a special place for us.

We are both full-time teachers, and I write professionally on the side for fun. Believe me when I say that writing for a wedding magazine is in fact a Pinterest dream come true. I love it!

As we plan for our big day, I get to take you with me every step of the way. I’ll be writing about it all—the venue search, tastings, and yes, even shopping for the dress!

Our wedding is on March 10, 2018. We’ve got a full year of planning ahead of us, and I can’t wait to share it all with you.

This is going to be so much fun!

Until next time,
Kara
