Meeting through a dating website, Courtni Munson and Kevin Baxter found out they had mutual friends. Courtni moved to Midland for work then Kevin asked Courtni on a date. After dating a few years, Kevin asked Courtni to marry him. On the Fourth of July of 2015, Keven proposed to Courtni at the Willie Nelson Picnic in Austin. Nelson had been a favorite of Courtni’s grandfather so Kevin knew the moment would have great significance. Kevin and Courtni’s mother arranged for people in the crowd to hold up signs for the proposal.

The couple enjoys revisiting their engagement but finds a small moment to have a great significance in their relationship. As they were riding in the car with Courtni’s great aunt and uncle, the elderly couple began to pick fun of each other. Courtni leaned over to Kevin and whispered that she wanted that. She wanted a marriage like her great aunt and uncle. Kevin squeezed her hand and said they would. The two hope for a strong, loving marriage. Courtni felt good about having a strong foundation.

While dating, the couple enjoyed going to the drive in, bowling, road trips, and attending concerts. Both are 27 years old; Courtni is a County Extension Agent for 4-H and Youth Development while Kevin is a cowboy by trade bus currently is a Service Technician in the Oilfield.

Courtni enlisted the help of her mother to plan the wedding. She chose an elegant rustic motif with a French country accent. Teal would be the color of choice with copper accents.  The most important aspect of the wedding for the couple was for their guests to enjoy the wedding. Courtni and Kevin hand selected the perfect band, caterer, and decorator for their evening.
