Meet The Swans
We are glad you are here to “meet the swans”…. so who are we? How did we meet? And why “the swans”?
In February 2009 we both went to Louisville for the National Farm Machinery Show.
Krista went for a “girls weekend” with one of her college girlfriends to visit another one of the girls who moved there after college. The girls planned the weekend the same time as the show, knowing it would be a good time to meet up with college friends who would also be there for that. Brett went to the show for a “guys weekend” with some of his hometown friends. It just so happened that one of those guys was someone the girls knew from college. When the two groups ran into each other, Brett and Krista met for the first time.
We quickly bonded on the fact that we both grew up on farms and shared many of the same interests. We have discovered that we were at the same place at the same time on a number of occasions throughout the years before we met. It still amazes us that our first official meeting seemed to come at just the right time in both of our lives, showing us that God picked the perfect time to bring us together. In the past year we had the opportunity to share in the wedding days of many of our friends. Now we are looking forward to our own wedding, and most importantly the rest of our lives together after our wedding day.
When Brett was in High School he received the nickname “The Swan”, derived from his last name “Swanson”. Shortly after Brett and Krista started dating they received the nickname “The Swans”. Krista embraced the nickname and has used it as inspiration to develop “our logo” the Swan-like “S” that is in the header.
