SANDERS & CARPENTER HEADED FOR THE MOON

April 18th was a historical day in the years 1997 and 2001. A handsome Nolan and beautiful Flannery made their arrival into this world. Nolan grew up in the hills of Tennessee and Flannery in the plains of Illinois.

Their first flight plan was in Maryville, TN when Flannery was visiting with her youth choir. Their next encounter was on Instagram September 21, 2017. After a slight delay, Nolan and Flannery began their romance. Eventually, Nolan flew his way to Mattoon on August 25, 2018 and their flight plan has been on course with perfect flying conditions ever since.
The flight plan was solidified at Biltmore Estate on December 7, 2019. Amidst family at the Biltmore, the proposal took place surrounded by beautiful North Carolina landscape. There was some turbulence before Nolan made his final approach at the exact spot she said “yes.” Between Zach running through the woods and Judiann in tears thinking her sister was flying away with Nolan forever. The Carpenters and Sanders have set their travel plans for June 5, 2020!
