Our Story

Love at first Dance

Zac and I met on a hot summer night in Orlando, Florida in 2006. I was in my third year of college at UCF and I along with my best friend (Julie-one of my bridesmaids) had decided to learn something new that I had always wanted to do (ballroom dancing!). While at my class in Winter Park, I was told that there was swing dancing every Friday at UCF (where again I was in college but, had no idea this was happening every Friday) and I just had to go. This is where I met the man of my dreams.

Zac was on the dance floor tearing it up and I couldn’t resist his crazy legs and handsome charm. I just knew I had to dance with him, I guess he had the same thoughts too. We ended up dancing the night away and many, many more since that night.

We’ve learned so much more from each other since that time, besides how great of dancers we both are (hah). We’ve been through happy times, sad times, love and loss, sometimes together and sometimes apart. But, we’ve always been there for each other and couldn’t ever really be apart all that long.

In 2012, I started residency and one of the hardest times of my life, Zac was there by my side through it all making food, cleaning the house, raising our furry boys, basically he was my knight in shining armor. Our relationship and love continued to grow and in 2016, ten years after we first met on that Friday so long ago, he asked me to be his and the rest is history!

We are so excited to welcome you to share in our special day as we become Mr and Mrs!
