Where It All Began: Share Your Story!

Every couple has a unique story to share: what’s yours? Today we’re reminding you to take a step back from wedding details for just a moment. How did you meet? How did he propose? What’s your unique story? Getting back to basics and remembering why you’re getting married is a fantastic way to put the focus back into your day. In today’s post, we want to hear YOUR story! Plus, we’ve teamed up with the lovely Stephanie of Geezees to give away a special gift to one lucky reader for sharing his or her story. Read on to find out more…

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »
