Love Stories: Preston + Katiee

2For Preston Sloan, 20, and Katiee Moon, 18, love means acceptance. These two proudly admire each other’s “weirdness,” and know that no matter what, they can always be themselves around the other. You’re most likely to find this engaged duo spending time outdoors fishing, boating, or—as on one special occasion—popping the question.

What is your favorite thing to do together?

K: Anything outdoors-y. We have so much fun, even if we aren’t doing anything extravagant!

P: Fishing is something we both enjoy, and we enjoy it even more in each other’s company. There is nothing more attractive than a girl who knows how to fish. She always catches the biggest one, too.


Tell us about your most memorable date.

P: This Valentine’s day, I surprised Katiee with a picnic at our favorite spot. I carved our names in the tree that we always hang our hammocks in. We were only there for about an hour until it started raining, but it will always be one of the most memorable times we have spent together.


6Describe your partner in three words.

K: Weird. Loving. Adventurous.

P: Perfect. Funny. Weird.


Tell us about the proposal.

P: I did it at our lake house by a campfire at night. I made a huge sign with Christmas lights reading, “Marry me?” and put it on the side of our boat. Katiee believed we were alone– little did she know, there were around 30 family members and friends hidden everywhere.

K: We were by the fire when a boat pulled up with the “Marry me?” lights; I was so shocked. Then all of our friends and family came out of nowhere and began shooting fireworks. He got on his knee, and I said yes!

P: When she said yes, it was the best moment of my life.


What was your experience like shopping for the ring at Diamonds Direct?

P: Excellent—I have never experienced such great customer service. Our sales associate Kimberly did an amazing job at helping me find the perfect ring for my perfect fiancée.

K: The ring is exactly what I wanted: one diamond in the middle with a halo around it and a diamond-studded band.


Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?

K: Don’t fight, especially over things that don’t even matter. Your relationship isn’t worth losing over the silly things.

P: Go into a relationship being yourself. Be weird, awkward, loving, and caring. If that’s who you are, your one true love will adore that about you.


What are you most looking forward to about spending the rest of your lives together?

K: Having my best friend and soulmate always by my side. And one day having kids… kids are fun.

P: Honestly, just being able to hang out every day. Nothing sounds more perfect than that!

    I am so proud of this couple, they are in love and have their future planned and both of them love the Lord. They are involved in the youth group and are just a great couple. They fit perfect for each other. To me they compliment each other. Preston is my Grandson, but I could not pick any one young lady better than he has. Katiee is already a part of our Family. I pray for God’s Blessings over their marriage and lives. God is so Good!
