Congrats Layne & Hendrick, who wed 2-13-16! The couple’s story: “Hendrik and I met on a social media app called Tinder right before we both graduated from Texas A&M. He immediately went to Pensacola, FL for Navy Flight School and I went to Dallas, TX for my first nursing job. The long distance aspect of our relationship strengthened our love for each other because it was sink or swim. Hendrik popped the question a year and a half after we met on top of the Pensacola lighthouse. Our wedding was a dream at the Robert Carr Chapel, we loved the beautiful grounds around the chapel and the red carpet with white walls and bay windows giving it a traditional and classic atmosphere. We now live in Norfolk, Virginia where Hendrik is finishing up his Naval Flight Training and I work as a Cardio-thoracic nurse with our sweet husky-golden retriever puppy, Nala. We live be moving around a lot with this military life but after all those adventures we can’t wait to be back in Texas to settle down.”
