Megan and Zachary

How We Met

Zack and I knew each other for many years prior to dating, We went to Jr. High together and saw each other occasionally in passings. It wasn’t until the summer of 2013, I went to a bar with my best friend Sara just to enjoy the work week ending and have some drinks. I seen Zachary, we began to talk .. I was starting nursing school at the end of the month he informed me he was going to school to be a nurse as well. We talked all night, even forgetting our friends who accompanied us. He was such a gentleman, He drove me home that night, since then 5 years ago we have been inseparable.

How He Asked

We went to Myrtle Beach without two children Alivia and Cameron to visit Zachary’s sister Emily and her boyfriend, Matt. 5-day vacation just 4 as a family, one morning Zack woke up at about 630am “Let’s get out of here and catch the sunset, Emily and Matt will stay with the kids”. At first, I was not impressed… 630am?! I eventually gave in, “but we are totally stopping for coffee first”. We drove down to the strip, paid for parking and began to walk along the water on the beach. I remember looking over to the bridge and turning around to see Zack down on one knee.

I was completely blown away, never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen, right here, right now. Many tears were shed, after Zack placed the ring on my finger I looked over to see our children, Emily and Matt all standing at the pier watching us. I am so grateful for the love we share together. I could not have picked a better partner to do life together, I am excited to begin this new journey of our lives.
