Emily Wedding Story

I'm Emily from Houston, Texas. My husband and I met in high school in 2007. Yes, we are proud to say we are high school sweethearts. I was 16 and he was 17. We met through some friends of ours and hit it off instantly. Yes, we were young, but how can you deny what we felt?

Things moved pretty fast and I moved in with him. Two years later, the night before Christmas Eve, we got the best news ever. We were expecting our first baby. That changed us for the better. On August 14, after 21 hours in labor, we were finally holding in our arms the glue to the family. She grew up before our eyes.

A year later, on November 29, after 16 hours of labor, our second beautiful daughter was born. Our family was growing. This past July was my 21st birthday. What a better way to celebrate then to go to Vegas? So there we were in Vegas, having fun. On our last day there, my husband had been acting weird.

I asked him, "What's bothering you?" He teared up and said, "I wanted to marry you in the chapel your mom and dad got married in, but I didn't have enough money to do it." I told him it didn't matter all. All I wanted was him by my side and by my daughter's sides. We could get married any other time. I'm proud to announce we will be getting married next year and are planning to have another baby and try for a boy. Wish us luck!
