Meet the Couple: Meghan & Zach

I've been waiting for this wedding for almost a YEAR! Meghan and Zach are getting married this weekend at Norfolk Botanical Garden! Joining me will be Chef by Design, the Bachelor Boys, Courtney Inghram, Valerie Demo....basically a dream come true wedding for little ol' me. 

Take a few minutes to learn more about this ADORABLE pair. They have been together since high school and I'm not lying when I say their love makes me giggly. ps- Their reception is in the same room as their junior prom. Bless.

How did you meet?
We met in high school (in Chemistry class :) ). We were friends for a long time, and then decided to go to the winter dance together. We started dating in February of 2009 (or as much as you can “date” as a 16 year old haha). We kept dating through high school, and decided to try long distance in college. We made it through four long years stronger than when we started, and closer than ever. We lived in San Diego for almost 2 years, and moved back to Virginia when Zach’s San Diego based company moved us to their new location here.

What has been the best part about being engaged?
Sharing our love with friends & family. We have loved having excuses to see long distance friends and family that we haven’t seen in far too long. It’s been nice to be able to see so many people we love so many times this year!

What is your favorite quality about one another?
Meghan’s favorite quality about Zach: that he is thoughtful and a thinker. He is so sweet- he always remembers anniversaries, brings me flowers, surprises me with breakfast in bed, thanks me when I do little things around the house. He is also a deep thinker, very passionate, always trying to find the best solution to a problem whether at home or work, and he inspires me to be my best every day.
Zach’s favorite quality about Meghan: Her positive and optimistic outlook on all things. She always sees the best in people and seeks to uplift and make happy everyone around her. She faces new adventures and challenges eagerly and head on, with a contagious positive attitude. Her exuberance always keep us optimistic and dreaming. 

What are you most excited for on your wedding day?
Meghan: Seeing Zach’s face when he sees me!
Zach: Seeing Meghan walk down the aisle, sharing our love with such a great group of people

If you had to pick a word for your relationship, what would it be?
Mac’n'cheese
