3 Year Wedding Anniversary!


Today Zack and I have been married 3 wonderful, memorable, romantic years! So today's post is going to be dedicated to our celebration!!!

Love Story

Zack and I first met in college at my sorority's christmas formal. He came with my sister as her blind date. We were aquaintances until my senior year of college. During the fall semester, we became best friends. We did everything together. And by Thanksgiving break, we realized that we had more than just "friends" feelings for each other.

Zack was not like any other guy I had met. He showed me what true friendship ment. I cherished that so much, that I did not want to take any chances of a dating relationship to ruin our friendship. But the feelings were so overwhelming, that I had to spend a lot of time in prayer, asking God to take these special feelings away if it was not His will for us to be together. The feelings got stronger...

A year and a half later, Zack proposed :) And one year and two days later, we got married! I could not be more blessed to have this incredible man in my life. Zack was my first kiss, first love, and best friend. God truely put the perfect man for me in my life. I even still have to pinch myself sometimes to make sure that this marriage is not a dream!

Here is a video of our wedding! I hope you all enjoy!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! I LOVE to watch this video! You are a beautiful couple! It seems like yesterday! You and Zack have had 3 fabulous years together and God Willing, many, many more! You are a wonderful and loving couple!

I always cry a tear at the end of the highlight video because when you wave from the limo...it is with that same child like expression of when you were about 3 years old and my heart goes right back to that time. I see this precious little girl with her "big excited" smile waving and laughing. I'm sure it is just a mom thing!

You were/are a beautiful bride and I am so very thankful that I was afforded the gift from the Lord to be involved in so many of the planning stages and gifted by so many friends and family with help and prayers to make this a special day to last a memory of a lifetime!

Enjoy your many days of celebration! God Bless and Happy 3rd Anniversary! All my Love, mom xooxoxox
p.s. I think the proposal was on the end of the video montage... maybe you could show that too! :D It was THE BEST proposal EVER! Tied of course with Kel's! :D

Allison,
Happy Anniversary! I loved the video and reading your story. I can't wait to see how mine unfolds- reading yours gives me such hope. I realized that we have another mutual friend..Dr. Kim Bearden that used to be at OBU. He's the singles minister at my church. Small world! Have a great anniversary!
