Brittany + Adam

Brittany + Adam

I didn’t have the privilege of attending Brittany and Adam’s wedding at Autumn Oaks Event Center, but after talking with Brittany I can see just how perfect these two are for each other. Brittany told me the story of how the two newlyweds met and how they fell in love.

How did Brittany and Adam meet?

The Bride and Groom both grew up in Lubbock and attended Texas Tech University. Brittany says Adam loves telling the story of how they met. “He loves my facial expression when he turns to me to tell the juicy details. So, I guess this should be my story to tell…. Adam and I have mutual Marine friends. For Adam’s 22nd birthday, he went out with one of our friends. A fun night of drinking and pictures were posted to Facebook the next day. When I saw Adam for the first time, I was immediately attracted to him. I might have “stalked” (loose term!) him on Facebook and eventually got the nerve to add him as a friend and message him. From my completely innocent “research” I noticed that we both loved sports cars. I messaged him the first time, asking him about cars! We immediately hit it off, and after about a month of flirting, he asked me on our first date. We went to Cracker Barrel to have breakfast and have been inseparable ever since.   We officially started dating on January 20th, 2014. I really did find my soul mate!”

How did Adam propose?

I fell in love with Brittany’s story of how her Groom proposed to her.

“In September of 2016, we took a Cruise with Brittany’s family to congratulate our cousin, Michael Maul, on Graduating from the University of North Texas.

On the night of September 6th, the dining room Maitre D’ came around to our table and asked for a personalized photo with me. He said he always took several photos with guests throughout the cruise week. He took me up to the main dining room grand staircase and asked me to stand beside the baby grand piano.

Immediately, I thought it was super strange that the photographer started taking pictures of only me. I thought this was a bad glamour shots photo session. I started looking around and questioned the Maitre D’ why he was not taking the photos with me.

All of a sudden, I saw Adam buttoning his suit jacket and walking towards me. My first instinct was thank goodness he came to rescue me! I was literally taking photos, by myself, in the middle of a 3 story dining hall that was feeding around 700 guests.

He walked up to me and I was about to tell him all about how weird this was, when he got down on one knee. I gasped and literally lost my breath! I cried the entire time! I cannot tell you anything Adam said … except the last sentence of “will you marry me”. All three floors of the dining room were clapping and cheering!”

“Adam really outdid himself! He out planned a planner!”


What is one of your favorite memories from your wedding day?

Brittany says the wedding video is just amazing and they have so many special memories from their wedding day. She shared just a few of her favorite memories with me.

“After Adam’s vows, I accidently snuck in a kiss (during the wedding) it’s in the video, everyone laughed.”

“Our best man, he forgot his entire speech and just winged it!  The videographer got the basic points but we always laugh about that.”

“We are both dancers (Adam was the President of the South Plains Ballroom Dance Team when he was attending South Plains). We had been working on our first dance for 3 months before the wedding.  It was outstanding. David Hodges with West Texas DJ posted it on his facebook page and it was amazing!”

“Our parents are both so amazing and without them we wouldn’t have been able to do any of this!! We love them so much!  The fun thing was, it was my parents’ (Ken and Debbie Campbell), anniversary on March 10th, so now we share an anniversary!!”
