Carole Anne Nelson and Keaton Mayers Shouted Their Love from the Mountaintop

Carole Anne Nelson & Keaton Mayers
July 10, 2021 

For a couple who loves tradition, Carole Anne Nelson and Keaton Mayers met in a modern way—online. “I didn’t want to tell my kids we met on a dating app,” Carole Anne laughs. “But [a friend] encouraged me, so I made a profile, and Keaton was the only one I matched with.” After a year of dating, Keaton took Carole Anne for a drive around her family’s ranch.

When Keaton set up a tripod to take a photo, Carole Anne had no idea he was actually catching their engagement on camera. Keaton got down on one knee before Carole Anne’s dad’s orange Chevy truck, which the couple would use as their post-reception send-off just a few months later.

The couple chose more masculine outdoor lounge furniture and more feminine pieces inside the tent to represent the joining of two personalities.

Fire pits were lit as the evening got cooler, so guests could grab a drink and enjoy the view.
