How Did You Know He Was “The One?”

Dec 17, 2012

Last week we asked our Facebook fans to answer the question, “How Did You Know He Was ‘The One’?”  This question was floating around our office earlier in the week because we are coming close to two office weddings this year (one in January and one in September) and I just made the jump to living with my boyfriend – and I was curious to hear from other real life couples who have also experienced that magical moment when you just knew – he was “The One”!

The story of my beau and I date back …  20 or so years ago, I had met him working at my first job – we both worked at a local McDonald’s.  It was the summer of 1993 – I was entering my senior year in high school and he was going into college.  I thought he was adorable and funny – but I knew that jocks didn’t date artists.  Instead, I wound up dating one of his friends, and well, that took him off the list of guys I could date.  Over the years, I heard updates about him through mutual friends, but we never re-connected – until February of 2012 when he messaged me on Facebook to catch up and within a few hours of talking we had plans to meet the very next day!  We went to a local Cuban restaurant and spent the night talking – not just a few hours, but all night – we even closed down the restaurant!  A few days later, I was leaving to go on an vacation with my son and my plane was delayed.  It was Valentine’s day.  He left work early and drove to the airport to take us to dinner.  After dinner, he bought a single red rose and handed it to my son and told him to give it to me for Valentine’s day.  I knew at that moment he was the one and I wasn’t going to let him get away from me for a second time … it was probably the sweetest and most romantic thing a guy had done for me my entire life!

I’d like to thank all our Facebook fans for sharing such amazing love stories with us!

While we’d love to choose all of you as the winner, the winner of this contest is:

Congrats to:

Michelle Santo, Cleveland Ohio

I have known my husband my whole life!! We grew up in the same neighborhood and my brother played little league with him!! He had a brother as well who always said the two of us would end up together. I was very close with his brother who unfortunately is no longer with us today but I know is very happy watching over us and our little one!!! Kevin and I have always been friends but one night he asked me to a wedding and I didn’t think he was serious (we were at a bar) so the next day he called and asked me again and I said yes. We had a great time (he was the best man) I knew alot of the people who were there so it was a lot fun!!! At the end of the night we ended up sharing the most amazing unexpected kiss and from that moment on I knew one of my friends was going to become my husband and my best friend. He was right under my nose my whole life and I never knew it!!!! We were married in two feet of snow (2 days before the wedding it was 70! Gotta love OH) on 4/23/2005 and with every passing year out loves grows stronger and stronger.

Planet Wedding: A Nuptialpedia

Planet Wedding: A Nuptialpedia

About two years ago, Harry Choron, contacted me – he wanted to use a few of my articles that I had published on our website in his upcoming book, Planet Wedding. Of course I was thrilled and honored to be included in such a wedding publication and signed the article releases right away!

Although it wasn’t my first time published (I had poems published way back in my high school days in Teen and Seventeen Magazines) and I’ve been an aspiring romance writer for a few years now – it was my first time that I was going to have my name in print in an industry wedding publication.  How exciting!!! And today, I finally received a copy of Planet Wedding - and there I was, on page vii – under the acknowledgments.   Wow!

Planet Wedding is a fabulous guide for brides-to-be, wedding buffs and the romantics at heart who not only want useful wedding planning tips but also history, information, cultural, funny stories and more – it really is everything you need to know about weddings. (Maybe even some things on wedding favors?)

Our Articles:

  • What Your Color Choice Really Means
  • A History of The Honeymoon

But Also includes Articles such as:

  • 69 Rules of Wedding Crashing
  • Ten Things the Bridal Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know
  • How to Tell If You’re a Bridezilla
  • How to Have a Green Wedding
  • 231 Money-Saving Tips
  • Wedding Customs from Around the World

It really is a useful book chock-full of useful tidbits and items you can use to help plan your own wedding!  And because I’ve been published in it, I would like to give away to one reader a copy of this book!  All you have to do is comment on this blog post for a chance to win – and please include your real email address when you comment (don’t worry, it won’t be published) so I can contact the winner.

Open to US Residents – US Shipping Only.  Contest ends on April 30, 2010 at Midnight EST.  Winner will be announced Saturday May 1, 2010!

Happy Wedding Planning!
