Love can be found in the most unique ways. Friday night bar hopping, awkward eye contact at the coffee shop, or maybe even a swipe right on that dating site. Those moments can lead to a lifetime of memories with a person you least expected to grow with.
Reflecting on all the bridal stories I have heard from my brides, this one in particular stood out to me. Richmond, VA native, Meghan, was kind enough to share her story of love. Meghan and Andrew both serve in the United States Military and are madly in love.
When asked the common question, "How did you all meet?" Meghan's response followed after a little chuckle. "Andrew and I met in a funny way! I went on a date with a boy who was going to VMI- it was the WORST date ever. We had absolutely nothing in common and to top it off, when he dropped me off, he told me I should 'meet his friend.' That friend ended up being Andrew, so maybe it wasn't the worst date ever." Meghan finds it funny when Andrew tells his story about how they met. Meghan shared "He had all these plans to be a bachelor, drive motorcycles, and live in a tiny house... until one day 'Hi, I'm Meghan!!!"
I think a huge shout out goes to the friend that made the awesome referral! Now, they both can live a love-filled life together with opportunities and memories. Meghan looks forward to exploring and adventuring wherever the Marine Corps takes them. I know they will go many miles whether near or far. So cheers, to Love, Life, and Memories!!
