Emilee and Zach’s April to Remember 4~2~22

How and or where did you meet?
Our fathers arranged for Zach & I to go to his senior prom together. Our fathers have always been best friends and our families are close, but Zach & I never really met, only knew of each other. So, we were both pleasantly surprised when we had the best time at his prom, having never hung out prior. The night was as perfect as perfect gets.

How did you get proposed to?
Zach arranged for he & I to go to “his brother’s volleyball game” in his high school gym because he said he would “video his brother’s game.” I was a bit confused when we arrived because no one was there, but I just assumed Zach got the time wrong and we were just really early. *So oblivious* As Zach was setting up the camera for the perfect shot “once the nets were up,” he had me stand in the middle of the gym to “make sure the angle was right.” He then turned me around (facing away from him) and when he turned me to face him, he was down on one knee. He proposed to me where are journey first started, in his high school gym where we attended his prom.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Immediately following the ceremony, Zach & I had 2 minutes where it felt like it was just, he and I. We just held each other in pure happiness. We were finally husband and wife.

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
AMAZING!! The first one Katie Barr picked out ended up being my PERFECT dress. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for. She listened to my dress wishes, looked at my Pinterest inspo, and reflected my personality perfectly when choosing my dress. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
