Trisha's Story

My apologies for the long silence. I've been so busy and also went away for a holiday. But I'm back now. And what better way to brighten up the holiday season with a story from a woman who's so in love with her man. Trisha Samuels sent me her story of how she met her man.

Trisha, i-Weddings wishes you all the best in your relationship and hopefully you'll keep coming back to the i-Weddings blog for ideas to plan your wedding!

My best friend introduced me to her friend who I thought was extremely intelligent and very attractive. Soon she started to invite him to all of our group hangouts. We asked him to play volleyball with us and we hung out the whole two days.

I was interested in him but I was not so sure he was interested in me. He was going off to college across the state so I did not try to pursue anything. I knew there was just something about him that attracted him to me so much. He went off to college and I still never forgot him.

He came back for Winter break and hung out with all my friends and that is when I knew I wanted him to be my boyfriend. I was in the car with my friends and I said, "He is the kind of man I want to marry. I could see myself marrying this man."

I was at my aunts the day before Christmas and I got a call from my best friend telling me that she was going to call Sean and ask him if he was interest in me. Here I am and 19 years old acting a s if I was in elementary school. I hung up with her and waited impatiently for about 25 minutes and then I got a call back. My heart was beating so fast and Felicia ended up telling me that she could not believe it but Sean like me too. I started freaking out. I was going in circles and then I just keep saying, “You’re kidding right?” and then I just felt like melting!

The next day we all went bowling and I was sitting in the back seat next to Sean and my hand was next to him and then he grabbed my hand and it fit like a glove and the rest is history! I love this man with all my heart and everyone should be with someone who makes their heart melt each and every day!
