Pettis & Christina were married in Rock Hill, SC at the beautiful Brakfield at Riverwalk. Pettis & Christina's story started back in high school when they met through mutual friends. They dated for 8 years before Pettis proposed to Christina at Concord Mills. They had gone to the mall to get an iPad. Christina said they were near a jewelry store and she suggested that they look at rings. To her surprise, Pettis said "sure" which shocked Christina. They looked and she saw one she really liked but Christina said she was not expecting anything beyond that. They left that store and as they started walking around, they approached Reeds and Pettis suggested they look there. Christina said she found a ring she did not want to take off of her finger. She loved it so much! Christina had a friend shopping with them and they left the store to go to Best Buy so that the salesperson named Tip could convince Pettis to get the ring. Christina said when she reached Best Buy, she felt so nauseous thinking that Pettis may actually get the ring. She said her stomach was in knots. Pettis showed up at Best Buy with a Reeds bag and stated that the salesman gave him his card and some jewelry cleaner. Pettis told Christina he had to stop back in the store before they left the mall. They got to Reeds and Christina said she was looking for the ring in the case. She turned around to find Pettis was on one knee and stated "Will you marry me Boogah"!
Pettis and Christina were engaged for 1 1/2 years. Christina decided on the colors Pink and Green because it was her Sorority colors. They decided to get married at The Brakefield at Riverwalk because they loved the vision that Carol, the owner of the venue had and it resembled a castle which was the look Christina was wanting.
A special thanks and shout out to all the wonderful vendors that made Pettis and Christina's wedding a beautiful even and smooth running day.
