How They Met


Linden and Hannah were both on the dating app Plenty of Fish for a while. After each experienced numerous unsuccessful dates on the site, they decided to give it one more shot.

One day in May 2018, they stumbled across each other’s profiles and were instantly interested. They sent each other a wink, and after a little bit Linden sent the first message of “I have a cheesy pick-up line, but I do not think it is ghouda-nough”. Hannah loves puns, so she instantly decided to give him a chance.

After a few days of talking, they decided to meet. Hannah was working at Marriott that day and was hesitant to go meet him after so many failed dates. However, her coworker told her if she didn’t give it a chance she may never find her soulmate. So she decided to go. They met at Starbucks on Thousand Oaks and 281 in San Antonio after Hannah left work. She walked in and saw only one guy there with a red beard matching the picture. They sat on the tailgate of his truck and talked for hours. Then, they decided to call it a night and went their separate ways.

The next day, he asked her out again and she agreed. After a week or two (depends who you ask), they made their relationship official.

After Linden moved from San Antonio to Kingsville to attend grad school at Texas A&M University, he kept saying how Hannah should check out Sandfest in April. They finally made the trip on their one-year anniversary.

At this point, they had been talking about marriage and kids for a little bit. The day they arrived, he brought her yellow tulips. He always gave her yellow tulips for special occasions now since the first date!

One night, they enjoyed a memorable dinner of oysters on the beach. After dinner, they took a beautiful evening walk on the beach. Hannah had rarely been to the Texas coast, so she was overjoyed to walk down the surf collecting sand dollars and giving them to Linden to hold.

The whole time, Linden was saying how much he loves her and how beautiful he thinks she is. Hannah was listening, but when she went after a sand dollar, you could hear Linden yell, “Hannah stop! Come back! I need to tell you something! I am trying to be romantic!” She finally turned around and saw him on one knee. He asked her, “Will you be my Hannah Marie forever?”

She laughed and said “Yes!”

The ring was gorgeous, but Hannah didn’t want to wear it until they could tell their parents. However, life had a different plan! After the beach, they visited Hannah’s cousin living nearby. As soon as Hannah walked in, her eagle-eyed cousin said, “Oh my God, what is this??”With all of the excitement, Hannah forgot to take off the ring!

Knowing that they couldn’t hide the news for long, they started making calls. Hannah called her mother, who said, “He is a good man and treats you right with a good head on his shoulders. We will start planning when you come home in a few days.” After those reassuring words from her mom, Hannah knew she had found her sand dollar (Linden, someone she never thought she would find, but is common for others).

Linden tells her today, “I never want to see another sand dollar again!”

The Inspiration


Hannah’s mom was the editor in chief of the Texas Wedding Guide for over 20 years, and with that came with the fact they had both seen EVERY wedding theme known to man, and with that came a list from mom of what I cannot have at the wedding. Linden and Hannah picked a theme that was not seen before – Texas Hill Country Wildflowers – and ran with it. It became a wedding that people are still talking about today like it happened yesterday.

Unique Elements


It wasn’t cookie cutter. They used vintage items and made every table different. All the table numbers were Texas Wildflowers. Everything was Texas theme. They even used carnival glass for the center pieces.
