Where It All Began

There’s something about a wedding that intrigues guests about The Story. They’ll want to know where you met, how he proposed, and where you plan to live. It’s fun to share your unique story — after all, your wedding day is all about you! One of our favorite ways to commemorate the occasion is with a custom art print, which can be displayed at your wedding and afterward in your home.

Customized vow prints or heartfelt messages from the groom to the bride is another way to commemorate and capture those moments.

Or perhaps specific locations on the map remind you of memories like your ‘first date and ‘it’s love’.

Oh, I just saw that I had to share my story to be eligible! My fiance and I met in a little beach town in southern California where I grew up and he was stationed in the Navy. He got out a few months later and we moved to LA together to follow our dreams in the entertainment industry. After a few years, we realized we wanted something a little more peaceful and a lot more green, so we packed up and moved to a beautiful little town at the base of a mountain in Oregon. We have been here for over a year and we are so in love.

Oh, I love this! My fiance and I met in my hometown and have moved all over the place in our years together. We are getting married in the town we have decided to settle down in, which is new to most of the people attending our wedding. This would be so special to have at our wedding!

I wish I was eligible for this – I live in Canada, sigh. I’m Canadian and my fiance is British. We met on a tour of Russia and Scandinavia. So, basically, we met in a hotel bar in Moscow. We’ve visited back and forth many times, and I lived in London for a while. Five years later, we’ve decided to live on the same continent. Our wedding will be very international, and travel, maps, etc will be our theme.

We met online, and we were hooked from our first date.

I met my fiance in high school, only a month before I graduated. We dated while I was in college and he was in his senior year in high school. The next year he went on to do OSUT training with the Army while I continued with college and even though it was hard, it was more than worth it and we grew through it. Before he even graduated from OSUT he was informed that the unit he would be joining once he returned to South Dakota was due to deploy in a year. He convinced me that after his deployment he was going to ask me to marry him so he asked me to look at rings with him so he could get an idea on what I liked. The morning he was set to deploy we were cherishing the last few hours we had before we had to part. We were laying in bed, I had my head on his chest just listening to his heart beat and he had his arms around me. He kissed me softly on my head and tenderly asked me to marry him. I happily said yes and when we both got up to get ready, he pulled a ring, my favorite one I had seen, out of his toiletry bag and placed it on my finger. Now we are 296 days into this deployment and i’m eager to have him back in my arms once again.
