Okay ladies, I've been reading through these planning threads and it inspired me to start one to keep myself more organized!! I'll try my best to keep my thoughts as organized as possible!
A little background info:
The Groom to be:
SO handsome in his uniform!!
The Bride to be:
The other love in my life--my fur baby Deuce!
First things first--- Our love story....
Bear with me on this one... I'll make it as short as possible! Kyle and I met around 2008(ish)... When we met, we were both married to other people... Him to his ex-wife who he'd been with since 19 and me with my ex husband who I'd been with since I was 15. We met Kyle in Pensacola Fl, as both he and my ex are in the Navy. They became friends and so began our friendship. Let's now fast forward to 2010... My ex and I got transferred to another duty station In Jacksonville Florida and as part of Navy life, you just kinda lose track of people (sad but true). In 2011 my ex got sent on an 8 month deployment-- long story short-- he decided that I was no longer what he wanted and on the day after his homecoming he told me he wanted a divorce. As many of you can imagine, this was a very difficult time in my life.. Now here comes the happily ever after!!! FFW to March of 2012 Kyle and I got back into touch... We began communicating on FB quite often and I came to discover that he was in basically the same situation and was also going through the big "D".... We were able to talk and confide in each other about the difficulties and sadness... We became very close... One day Kyle asked if he could come visit--he was still stationed in Pensacola, which is about a 4 hour drive from Jacksonville... I hesitantly agreed... I was just afraid of what may come! He came that weekend and we hung out and had so much fun together! It was the first time in a very long time that I had felt happy again! Kyle kept coming to visit as often as he could and our friendship turned into becoming best friends... We spoke on the phone for hours and hours daily and saw each other as often as possible!! I moved to Nebraska to be near family and Kyle got transferred to San Diego... We made the long distance thing work and we have been together ever since!! We are more in love now than we have ever been and I am so happy to me marrying the absolute LOVE of my life--my true soul mate!!! I really am marrying my best friend!!! I wholeheartedly believe that this was our destiny... We both needed the struggles of our first marriages to become who we both are today! Kyle would visit as often as possible and I was more than happy to fly to sunny San Diego for a visit... We made it work... It has been difficult at times, I won't lie, but we have worked through everything and are SO SO SO in love!!! We both really thought we'd never find another love.... Kyle asked me to marry him on new years eve of 2012 at "our bench" on a walking path along a lake in Omaha Nebraska. It was so sweet and romantic, and totally my style-- intimate and personal!! We've had a long engagement due to the long distance and also Kyle deployed for an 8 month deployment in January of 2014, but that is coming to an end!!! August of 2014 my love will return and we will be able to live together for the very first time and continue planning our dream beach destination wedding!!!
Sorry that was long!! I really tried to consolidate the story without leaving out too many details as to confuse people!!!
TO BE CONTINUED!!! I have to get to work!
The engagement shoot:
