Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met at a restaurant that we both worked at to get through college. First we were friends and then our relationship grew into more. We dated for about two years before we got engaged. Our engagement was seven months and that was the perfect amount of time for us. We are best friends and believe that God brought us together. We are so blessed to have found each other.
What was the most amazing part of your day? The most amazing part of the day was seeing each other for the first time. It was so special for both of us.
What else would you like to share about your big day? My father has been diagnosed with cancer and it was such a blessing that we were able to have him there and walk me down the aisle. It was a very emotional time for the three of us!
