How did you meet? Brandon and I met at work, but didn't officially talk to each other/or get to know each other until we ran into each other out with our friends one night.

When did you get engaged? May 3rd, 2011. After a year long deployment in Afghanistan, Brandon and his unit arrived home. The bus he was on knew he was going to ask me to marry him so they made him go to the front of the bus to get off first (even though they too had not seen their family and friends in a year). He got off the bus, got on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Obviously I said yes!


What was the first thing you noticed about Cassie?
Her beauty.
 Describe Cassie in three words:  Cassie is kind, caring, and genuine.
Your favorite thing about Cassie?  Her passion for life and enthusiasm for experiencing the outdoors.


When did you know he was the one? When I first saw Brandon, I was instantly attracted to him. I don't even think it was a week after we officially met, that I was sitting in the kitchen with my mom telling her he was "the one". I knew I was in for the long haul when on our first date, he told me he was to deploy to Afghanistan for a year in four short months. That's when I knew!
Describe Brandon in three words: Handsome, loyal, and loving

Brandon's best feature? Brandon's best feature is his integrity and strength. I know I can always count on him.
