A call was made to her best friend in the Spring of 2014. During the conversation, Haley Andress excitedly uttered, "I met a boy and I love him." And there it was, love at first sight!
And that feeling Haley expressed for Maxwell Kunstmann only grew from that moment to this one. Although Haley may have experience a love for Maxwell first, he was the one who verbalized it. No shame and no regrets!
Together their lives has been filled with traveling, music, attending football games of their favorite team, and being with their pups.
Haley openly admits she was "really hoping it (a proposal) was coming, but never expected it to happen when it did. Little did she realize, Maxwell had made attempts before and in September of 2017 found that there was no time better than the present.
"We had been out for a fun afternoon together and I started pestering him about when he would propose. I was devastated when he told me that he hasn't even been looking for rings. We got back to the house and ready to throw myself a pity party. I came back to the bedroom where he was waiting for me on one knee. Turns out, he had been trying since the summer to propose, and I had ruined every chance he had taken so far. He felt the moment was right and gave me the biggest surprise of my life."
And so, on September 16, 2017, one hundred and sixty friends and family members gathered at B & A Warehouse in on the Southside of Birmingham, Alabama to witness Haley and Maxwell confession their love for one another and commit to be joined together as husband and wife. Reflecting on that day, Haley notes her fondest memory was "the first look. It was my favorite moment seeing my soon to be husband without anyone around. I'll never forget how he looked at me and how special that moment was."
