I snatched “Our Story” from our wedding website: www.weddingwire.com/amandaandsamuel
One day I’ll share a more complete version:
Sam and Amanda met in the year of 2008 after they had been evacuated from Galveston because of Hurricane Ike. They met briefly in the rec center in College Station while relocated for the fall semester but it wasn’t until the spring back in Galveston that they found each other in the same circle of friends. It wasnt love at first sight, Sam could never remember her name and Amanda thought he was pretentious. Nevertheless they slowly became friends and then came to find out they really enjoyed each other’s company! They shared a love for random adventures around the island and most importantly they shared a love for Jesus Christ that ultimately brought them together. It took one long, awkward and awesome year for Sam’s pursuits to win Amanda over, but he did it, with his persistence and charm! And so it all officially began in June of 2011 with Amanda’s not so eloquent words, “I don’t want to not be your girlfriend.”
Here’s to 10 months! A friendship-dating-engaged-married journey shown below in a few pictures.
