Arkansas Engagement: Patricia Elliott of Tulsa & Rotnei Clark of Wollongong, Australia
Patricia Elliott of Tulsa, Okla. and Wollongong, Australia resident Rotnei Clark are engaged to be married on June 7, 2014 at the Castle on Stagecoach in Little Rock.
Check out these adorable photos by Drew Cason Photography and read their sweet story as told by Patricia:
Rotnei and I were both student-athletes at the University of Arkansas. He says he first noticed me at an athlete barbecue early that school year, but it wasn't until after Christmas that year at church I spotted him. I made a special effort to say hello to an old friend, who I hardly knew, who happened to be sitting by Rotnei. I told my friend I thought he was kind of a sissy on the basketball court, but of course that didn't hurt his dashing looks. The next day I received a text from a unknown number saying 'Hey you, it's the one you call a sissy.' Excited, blushing and a little embarrassed, I'll never forget the feeling walking across the cross walk to class that day on Jan. 14, 2010. After our first date, I will never forget running in to my roommate and telling her 'I had found the man I wanted to marry.' Little did I know what the Lord had in store for us. This started our journey of continuous love, joy, forgiveness, hope, encouragement, strength, unity and faith in the Lord's plan.
