About Us

Paul Badke

If you haven't met him yet, you really should. You won't regret it, he is a very likable guy! He'll make you laugh out loud, and he'll also tell you like it is. He'll have your back (even if you're in the wrong). He loves K-State! If you like KU, that's okay, just don't tell him unless you're ready for a debate. He loves his family. Especially, Kara! He's about to marry her and make her the happiest woman on earth. He enjoys grilling and drinking on occasions. He's an outdoorsy kind of guy. He is super excited for his wedding, so if you would like to help please leave him a message.

Kara Romesburg

She is such a sweetheart! She will take care of you if you're hurt. She always wants everyone to be happy. When she sees somebody sad she wants to fix it. She loves nature, and watching her cat, squirrels and birds play. She's looking forward to chasing around a little kid (again). Paul came into her life at the right moment. She has been thinking about him since her best friend Krista put a little bug in her ear. God showed her the way and patience. She couldn't be happier! She is great to Paul and makes him the happiest man alive! She also loves K-State (she does now anyways)!

Our Love Story

The Adventure

They say the best place to be kissed in Arkansas is at Whitaker's Point. It's a gorgeous crag that overlooks an endless valley with the Buffalo River hidden down below. There's a little hiking trail that winds it's way through trees and and hugs a steep bluff that leads to the amazing location. There are a few pretty waterfalls along the way that are fun to stop and explore. It's not a hard hike, only about 3 miles roundtrip, although the walk back uphill to the Jeep seems longer. We saw a few deer and lots of other wildlife on our little adventure (a roadrunner too, haha!) This was our first little outdoor adventure together and it's unforgettable. We loved the experience so much that we went back in August 2015 to show Kaden, and he really loved it too!

The Dream Home

We feel so blessed to live in our house. We found a perfect place in North Riverside to call home. It's adorable! It reminds me of a little doll house. It's like an A-frame. A tudor you might say. LOL (inside joke). We fell in love with it when we saw it. When we were trying to decide whether or not to get the house Paul asked me if I wanted a dream wedding or a dream home. Since he was going to move in with me, he was basically saying he was going to marry me? When he asked, tears started rolling down my face because I was so happy. So I had to decide... do I want a dream home or a dream wedding? I said a dream home! We've been living happily ever after since moving into our beautiful house. And I'm still getting my dream wedding... just sayin'!

The Engagement

I was thinking, ``this is happening!`` I was overwhelmed with joy! So, Paul told me he was going to a K-State game with Kaden. My friend Bri asked me to do a photoshoot at Botanic the same day, so I thought perfect everybody has something to do. While Bri was taking photos I could sense someone walking up from behind. They're getting closer. I was thinking, what does this guy want, get out of the shot! So I turn around and see the love of my life. I jumped in his arms in excitement! I was super happy he was there to watch Bri take photos. A little confused... did the basketball game get cancelled? I started asking questions. At that point he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I said yes! I am honored he asked me to be his wife!
