Mackenzie and Joseph
How We Met
Joseph and I actually met at the first wedding I ever attended – and as we danced that night, I knew we’d be dancing together at our own wedding someday. I know every couple says this, but it’s true: with Joe, it was love at first sight. I’ll never forget watching him from across the crowded room and feeling like I knew him. We were introduced that night because we have the same birthday, January 6th. Within a few months we were madly in love, so much so, that we moved cross country together away from our friends and family. We set out to start a life together – now we are declaring this life together forever.
How He Asked
Joe has always been the man of my dreams, but quite literally so for a few months. I kept having this reoccurring dream that we were engaged. Beautiful, detailed dreams where I would wake up a little disappointed that we weren’t actually getting married…I told Joe how real it felt and how happy I knew I would be if he ever asked. The next morning, I woke up and looked down at my hand. There, on my finger, was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. He had slipped it on while I was sleeping. I looked over at him, smiling, looking at me. He told me he wanted to make all my dreams come true for the rest of my life.
