“Love has no boundaries. Only people do.” This quote was included in the write-up that this beautiful couple sent me about their love story and engagement and I just couldn’t help myself but include it in today’s post. It’s a beautiful quote! This weekend was so awesome as Andy & I hosted two of our bestest friends from college and then an entire HOUSE of friends & family on Saturday to have one last big hurray before the baby arrives. The weather was gorgeous & really I couldn’t have imagined a better way to spend our weekend! We even got down to the Cherry Blossoms on Friday & checked out Maketto, just like we planned. While I ate more than I intended (who doesn’t??) it really was an awesome weekend, capped off by an amazing DIY workshop yesterday with Alison Harper & Co.
I hope you all got to enjoy the gorgeous weather as well! Today we have Zack & Andre’s adorable Virginia engagement pictures, taken down in Warrenton at Red Truck Bakery. I love their casual clothes & laid-back love perfectly captured by Bradilynn Aines Photography. You guys are going to love their love story too – a real testament to that quote that started today’s post. Hope you all have a GREAT week. It’s a busy one for us, but I am looking forward to it.
How they met:
Zack and I met back in November 2013. It actually all started right on Facebook. I poked him. After that we started chatting on Facebook for hours. In that process numbers were exchanged. He called me after we got off of messenger. We then talked on the phone for hours. Talking about EVERYTHING. So a couple days later I noticed a post that he had posted on Facebook. Talking about a movie that him and talked about on the phone. So I commented back and asked him if he wanted to go together and see it. He agreed. So two days later we go see “The Best Man Holiday”. As the movie ended we was walking out and he stopped. He went back to help these elderly women out of their seats. After that I knew he was the one.
He was so sweet to me. He treated like I’ve never been treated before. The only problem was Zack was straight and made it completely clear he was not into guys. After the first time we hung out we was always on the phone and starting to hang out even more. It was like we was already in a relationship. So a couple months roll by and things started to change. Zack started catching feelings and after months of convincing him to give me a chance.
In May 2014 Zack proposed to me and we got engaged. He got down on one knee with a tear in his eye and asked me to marry him. I said “yes”. We are like little kids in love and we have been going on strong since. We’ve decided to get married next Spring with a small beach wedding.
