David & Anne

David's Story "We had known each other for years before we formed a relationship. For about six months we were dating before Anne acknowledged we were in fact truly dating. Finally, one day she wrote me a letter in Morse code asking me out. There were plenty of other creative and fun moments that influenced me, but that's when I knew."

Anne's Story "At some point I just realized that being with Dave was the best part of my day. There are a lot of days that I fall in love with him all over again. Yesterday for example. I was about to kill him over something at lunch and we were laughing about how stupid it was by dinner. He is extraordinarily thoughtful, funny, and not to mention devastatingly handsome."

Nupam & Natasha

Nupam's Story "To be honest, there was no single epiphanic moment. Through the time we were dating, I slowly started to notice that I would think about her and ways to make her happy more than I would think about me and my needs. That's the point I knew she was the one."

Natasha's Story "Nupam and I had only been dating for a few months when I was was on my way to pick him up from the airport after he returned from month long trip with a friend.The moment we saw each other this enormous smile came across his face, and I just knew we were in it forever."

Jason & Ashley

Jason's Story "We were in Vancouver for a short getaway weekend, and after a hike in Stanley Park, she stared out to the ocean and I knew she was the one. Over three years later, I can reflect back on that moment, and I know it was Ashley's emphatic love for life, her family and friends that stood out the most."

Ashley's Story "I knew Jason was my one and only by our third date. As we sat overlooking the ocean and talked about life's adventures, I felt an attraction and sense of ease like never before. I quickly knew I found my match: a gentleman with a patient spirit, a true lust for life, and someone who'd love me for me unconditionally."

Pete & Koryeah

Pete's Story "I knew after our first vacation together, a summer trip to Colorado, that the adventure of life would be so much better with Koryeah by my side. I absolutely loved being with her as we took in a concert in Aspen, whitewater rafted and explored Denver. Fittingly, we later moved to Denver and eventually took our vows in the Rocky Mountains."

Koryeah's Story "After a few weeks of dates that had gone all too well, we took it to the next level and added each other on Facebook. On his profile, I immediately came across the Bob Marley quote "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." The biggest smile appeared on my face because that is my life's mantra! Our life has been one concert, love song and dance ever since."

Chris & Teresa

Chris' Story "I knew Teresa was the one when we saw each other for the first time. It was that classic love-at-first-sight scenario you see in movies. I think the simple litmus test for love at first sight could be how long you’re willing to look each other in the eye when you first meet. With Teresa, I found myself gazing into her eyes for what seemed like 10 minutes. I have never been sure of something in my entire life and I find myself reliving the feeling of falling in love at first sight with her again and again every time I look into her eyes."

Teresa's Story "When Chris introduced himself to me, he held my gaze with those soft brown eyes of his and I felt something indescribable within my heart. I've come to now identify that as a connection that goes much deeper than love. And from that moment on, Chris has remained at my side and that initial feeling that I first experienced eleven years ago is still felt whenever we catch each other’s eyes today."

Jeff & Eric

Jeff's Story "I was at LAX when I knew Eric was the one. Eric picked me up from the airport after a business trip (and that alone is true love). Eric was waiting for me and didn't see me. I had a moment to see the eagerness and excitement on his face as he waited. He shuffled from foot to foot and kept looking at his watch to check the time. The expression on his face said everything and I knew without words. He was the one."

Eric's Story "I knew Jeff was the one on our first date. We went out for sushi dinner and had the best conversation. It was like I'd known him for years. As we walked out of the restaurant, I asked Jeff for a kiss. That was all it took."

Troy & Kelley

Troy's Story "I knew I was going to marry Kel about three years before we started dating. We were friends for about seven years first and would spend hours just talking about any and everything. One night after one of the many lengthy conversations we had, I went to bed with this feeling of, ‘This girl will be wife one day.’ I never felt a sense of urgency either. I always knew it was something that was going to happen and fate would work it out for us. And it did."

Kelley's Story "I knew within the first few months of dating I wanted to marry Troy. It was an indescribable feeling; I just knew he was the right man for me when I could be my complete goofy self around him and he loved it. We had an undeniable connection and didn't want to leave one another’s side. It’s still the same seven years later."

Franklin & Chandler

Franklin's Story "I knew from our first date that there was something extremely special about her. I remember watching her laugh and I was drawn to her smile and her joy. She amazed me that first evening with a glimpse of a heart that was uniquely beautiful and a smile that would make any heart smile. She is one of a kind and to this day she still amazes me. She completes me and my life has finally become perfect with her being part of it"

Chandler's Story "I didn't believe in love at first sight, and I was very happily single. But when my friend set me up on a blind date, I opened the door and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I knew from the moment I saw him that he was the one. I know it sounds cliché, but I just knew. I came home from the date and told my mom that I was going to marry him."
