Small town sweethearts Caroline Franco and Blake Ceola are tying the knot on June 30, 2018! Their gorgeous engagement photos show off their love for each other and the serene Arkansas outdoors served as the perfect background for the sweet session. Since Tontitown is so close to both of their hearts, they planned for their ceremony to take place at St. Joseph's Catholic Church with a reception at Caroline's family's home to follow.
The Love Story
The couple grew up together in Tontitown. Their mothers decided to play matchmaker and set them up last spring. "At the time we both thought it was 'weird' but, to our surprise, it was actually perfect," Caroline says.
For Blake's 30th birthday, the couple took a trip to Colorado with Caroline's sister and brother-in-law. Caroline planned the whole weekend to be all about Blake. But to her surprise, Blake had something else up his sleeve.
"The night we celebrated his birthday, we went to a nice restaurant in downtown Breckenridge," she says. "After dinner, we decided to walk off all the food we had just eaten. The whole day had been chilly and misty, but as we were walking up this road away from downtown, all of a sudden the sun started peeking through the clouds shining over the mountain tops. It was incredible! We stopped to look around and admire the breathtaking view and that's when Blake popped the question. Like my friend said, 'It was like God saying YES!'"
