Zach and I first met in 2006 when we were at some mutual friends house for a BBQ. Believe it or not we didnt really speak to one another at this BBQ. It wasn't untill some months later when we both decided to vacation over a long weekend with these same mutual friends in Nags Head. We had a great time, interacted very little, but we did drive home together. This was when we first really started talking and getting to know one another. Zach always likes to point out as well that this is the first time he saw me in a bikini...I will let all of you draw your own conclusions on that one~
When we got back in town I asked Zach out to lunch, he turned me down! Its true, he said no! I left on my way home thinking that was that and I would move on...he adds that it wasnt until he was in his house making himself a sandwich that he realized what had just happened!
A few months later Zach called and asked me to the movies. We did this twice, me not realizing these were supposed to be dates!
Finally Zach formally asked me out on a date and we had a blast! He took me to play putt putt, to snow to go, and to Olive Garden for dinner! It was a great time. We didnt want it to end so we went down to a little beach in the area after dinner and walked and talked for a while longer.
I was so surprised! I think I actually almost tackled him!
I said yes of course... the ring was absolutely beautiful- one of a kind designed by Zach.
I was the happiest girl in the world!
Check back next Tuesday for our Wedding story, the funniest line of the ceremony, and of course pictures!
