"Even though she still doesn't believe me, Hazel and I met way back in college. Although we had never really spoke, I came across her name years later. I just knew I had to ask her good friend Alexis to introduce me and, as they say, the rest is history.
From the very start of our first phone conversation, it didn't take long to realize how much she and I had in common. After convincing her to have breakfast with me, I knew it would lead to something special and soon after, we began dating.
I can't pinpoint the exact time I knew she was the one but asking her to marry me was the easiest decision of my life. Not only am I anxious and excited to begin a new chapter in both of our lives but I am especially excited to do so with my best friend." - Christian
"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." - Hazel
