"Even though she still doesn't believe me, Hazel and I met way back in college. Although we never really spoke, years later I came across her name in the most romantic of places - Facebook. Something told me I should ask her good friend Alexis to introduce me, and as they say, the rest is history.
It didn't take long to realize how much she and I had in common. And although we were both going through some ups and downs, we soon began dating.
I can't pinpoint the exact time I knew she was the one but I definitely know it was the easiest decision of my life. Come September of 2014, I am extremely anxious and excited to begin a new chapter in our lives and I am especially excited to celebrate this time with our close friends and family."
"I have been told that the love of your life comes when you least expect it. Fresh out of passing my boards, my eyes were set on jump starting my career and nothing more. One day, my good friend Alexis (one of my fabulous Maids of Honor) sent me a message that "this guy" wanted to take me out on a date.
Hesitant at first, I decided to see what he was all about. What turned out to be a brief first phone call turned into a three hour-long conversation on every topic imaginable. A couple of days later, he took me out on our first date. A couple of minutes in, we were inseparable. After spending more and more time with each other, I effortlessly realized that "this guy" was "THE guy". From the moment I met Christian, I felt like I finally found a long lost best friend that I had been searching for all these years.
A year after our first date, he went from THE guy to--the Fiance. I can not wait to celebrate our relationship with our close friends and loved ones to witnessing the day that Christian not only becomes my husband, but my forever."
