Crystal Bunch and Josh Martin first met while students at DeSoto High School.  He was a cheerleader, she was in the band.  Both graduated and went on with life, until a chance meeting at a northern DFW venue where he worked and she frequented. 

“One day when she paid her bill with a credit card, he looked up her name on Facebook,” recalls Crystal’s daughter Emma.  “That night he friended her on Facebook, and they noticed they knew a lot of the same DeSoto people, and they started talking, and the rest is history!”  Crystal wanted a special venue for her bridal photo shoot – the DeSoto Eagle Stadium football field!  “We still bleed green and gold, it would be such a fun surprise for him if I could make it happen! 

 So, on a sunny February afternoon, Crystal in her beautiful bridal gown, positioned on the 50-yard line at DeSoto Eagle Stadium, created beautiful photos for her future husband celebrating their Eagle heritage!

 On Sunday, March 5, at a chapel in McKinney, the two became one and began their flight into the future.

“The photo was a HUGE hit and turned out beautifully,” Crystal enthused. “Josh was definitely incredibly surprised and couldn’t believe I had pulled that off.” 

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Josh Martin!
