Our Story

Nate and Maren first became acquainted in 2001 while they were attending the BYU 40th ward. Nate and his roommates helped Maren when she was moving, and they all became friends. Nate and Maren even went on a double date—Maren with Nate’s roommate, and Nate with another girl in the ward. It wasn’t until their paths crossed again nearly 5 years later that they went on their first date. The timing still wasn’t quite right then, but in the Fall of 2007 they met up again and started dating. After dating for more than a year, they were both finally ready to take the plunge. Maren received the best Christmas present of her life when Nate asked her to marry him on December 25, 2008. . . . hence the whole wedding thingy. :)
