Brought from two opposite sides of the country, Aaron and Samantha found love at Wake Forest University.
Aaron was attending University for his Doctorate when he crossed paths with Samantha.
When Samantha met Aaron, she had already been working at Wake Forest for several years. She was automatically attracted to his charm while he was drawn in by her sense of humor.
Being far from their families was difficult for Aaron and Samantha, but in many ways it brought them closer. They spent long hours talking, laughing and helping each other grow as individuals. One of Aaron's favorite places to take Samantha was a tree swing on the North Quad on campus.
As their friendship grew, they began to realize that through the separation with their own families, they had begun to develop a family with each other. Aaron then decided to ask Samantha to spend the rest of their lives together.
She said yes.
The wedding planning began. Now, wedding planning is difficult enough, but when you are coordinating details coast to coast, things can get a bit stressful. Samantha mentioned how much of a help Aaron had been in helping her plan, create and keep as stress free as possible.
Their excitement was growing.
Finally, their wedding day arrived and it was well worth the wait.
A steady murmur filled the chapel as guests slowly began to arrive. Samantha and Aaron's families walked down the aisle and a thick air of anticipation fell over the guests. A soft creak announced the entrance of Aaron and his groomsmen.
As Aaron took his place at the front, his eyes were locked on the double doors at the back of the chapel. The doors that his soon-to-be-wife was soon to walk through.
A sweep of light came through as the doors opened. On the arm of her father, Samantha began her walk down the aisle, tears in her eyes.
The ceremony commenced.
After an exchanging of vows and rings, Aaron and Samantha were announced "husband and wife."
Their celebration continued with hugs, dancing and many precious memories.
