Michelle and Zachery

How We Met

Zach and I met when I was a freshman in highschool, we had the same group of friends. Fast forward four years and we both wind up working at the same Applebee’s. We were friends and talked here and there but nothing more than that. Two years later(we had both had our fair share of rough relationships) he’s on a deployment with the Air Force and started Facebook messaging me. We hit it off instantly and turned our friendship into something so much more. He was deployed for three more months and when he came home we were inseparable. We’ve made it through that and a six month training where we only had our phones keeping our relationship alive and are still stronger than ever.

how they asked

I picked out my ring a few months before zach proposed and honestly had no idea it was going to happen when it did. He even had my friends text him with fake plans to throw me off. The day he proposed we were at the Festival of Lights and he said he wanted to take a Facebook picture in front of a big Christmas tree. With my dad and mom both holding phones to take pictures I was a little confused but didn’t put two and two together. A few seconds later he spun me around, told me how much he loved me and how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to take his hand in marriage! I was so shocked and everyone was clapping it was a perfect moment!! Lucky for me my parents caught it on video!!
