We can’t wait to share Savanna’s real name change story with you! Read on to learn how two people fell in love over street tacos and football, and eventually eloped. Savanna also shares her name change experience and advice for fellow newlyweds.
Savanna’s Love Story
Terry and I met during our senior year at Oklahoma State where we quickly bonded over our love for college football and street tacos. We started hanging out after work, between classes, and found any excuse to be around each other. I didn’t know it yet. But, I was already so in love with this man from Texas.
That fall we met up to watch the OSU vs Baylor homecoming game and afterwards we took a drive in his truck. We drove all over Stillwater talking, laughing, and finally I asked him if we were going to do this thing or what? He took my hand and from that moment forward life as I knew it changed. By winter we’d moved in together and by Spring we graduated and moved back to Texas. Last October, we eloped to Telluride Colorado where we exchanged vows on a mountain side and afterward found a place to watch the OSU vs Baylor homecoming game like we’d done six years ago.
Savanna’s Name Change Narrative
We talked about name change a few months after we started dating and it was just something we always agreed upon. I was excited at the thought of changing my name once we made it official. The best part is getting to see his last name next to my name now. It still gives me full body chills! It wasn’t really hard to change my name, but honestly sitting at the DMV for 6 hours had to be the worst part. That’s just to be expected though!
I honestly cannot say enough good things about MissNowMrs! It was so easy and saved me so much time and stress. I didn’t have to worry if I was missing a document or important information that would just make the process more stressful. It was a relief knowing I had everything I’d need in the folder I received.
Savanna’s Newlywed Advice
Actively pursue the “honeymoon” phase everyday! It doesn’t have to end after the wedding or after the honeymoon. Be persistent in cultivating those feelings you felt on your wedding day for your partner. It’s not always easy because like any good husband mine drives me bonkers some days. But, its those small choices everyday that will make all the difference!
