- Wedding: September 2011
A little bit of background…. I’m a blogger and I metmy fiance through blogging. A few years ago I left him a comment on his blog and after that we became blogging buddies then friends then more. He is from New Zealand and I’m from the US (Tennessee) so after we started dating it was mostly long distance. I officially met him the first time after we had been dating for four months. I spent a month in New Zealand then had to leave and wait another five months until we could see each other again. The readers of his blog donated money for the plane ticket so that he could come to the USA for a month this summer to spend time with me before I move to New Zealand. We roadtripped across the country and then a week after we had been back in my hometown – after he asked my mom and a few friends for permission/approval – he set this up and asked me. It was the cutest thing ever, and so perfect for me with post its, a flipbook video, and a romantic speech. He knows me so well and I can’t wait to marry him!
