Saw a social media post by Katie today.
She and Amanda were riding horses together on a remote northern California beach. The post said something being where they want to be every day with each other.
There is something deep and steady about their relationship so I know those words carry serious meaning. When they return to Nashville I hope to learn what the meaning behind them is.
Nashville Artist Katie Jackson and entrepreneur Amanda Coaker were married after a whirlwind engagement, Amanda said. But they fell in love the old-fashioned way, locking eyes across a crowded room.
Both from large families with deep traditions, they admitted their relationship was a surprise and difficult for some to accept at first. But deep traditions also mean deep roots and both of their families came around.
Family is the most important thing of all, Amanda said.
