Brittany and Zac

How We Met

Zac & I first dated our sophomore year in high school. In 2004, at age 15, we had our first date at the movies to see “The Grudge” and also went to our first semi-formal dance together. We had dated other people between 2005-2007 and officially got back together the summer of 2008 and have been together since. We purchased our first home together in 2014, and he surprised me with a puppy, Opie, on Christmas eve 2017.

How He Asked

On February 23, 2017, I thought I was going to a benefit for a co-worker of his. When I walked in the door, Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” started to play. Ticket stubs to our semi, my corsage, movie ticket stubs & photos were placed around the room. He had also created a book, “from a house to a home” with all photos of what we have done to our house over the years. The room was also decorated with string lights, flower petals & banners that he designed on VistaPrint featuring lyrics to “Perfect.”

Brittany and Zac's Engagement in The Other Side- Utica, NY

Zac BUILT the maze, with help from his 2 best friends and aunt. It also included a photo collage of our puppy, who showed up at the end also! The whole thing was captured on camera with a second surprise with our families showing up at the end! It is a day I will remember always and was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. He is my Jack Pearson. We are getting married 9-7-18 :)
