Lizzie and Zach’s Sanctuary Vineyard Wedding was a fairytale day that was a long time in the making! They met in college and quickly fell in love due to Zach’s efforts of asking Lizzie to lunch every Friday when she was new to the University! I remember Zach coming up to me at their friend’s wedding and telling me that he was going to propose to Lizzie… and then a few months later on Fourth of July, I heard that Zach popped the question to Lizzie! She said yes and shortly after asked me to be their wedding photographer.
For these college sweethearts their wedding day could not have been more perfect for them! They both were calm, joyful and excited the entire day. The stolen glances I got to photograph of Zach and Lizzie will melt your heart and made me tear up! Their friends and family were overjoyed as well seeing their marriage begin on such a wonderful sunny day in the Outerbanks.
Lizzie told me that she knew Zach was the one when; “Looking back, I think I always knew. Our pieces fell together perfectly from the beginning. I think what solidified everything for me was seeing Zach with my family and how quickly he completed it. I swear he and my sister are two peas in a pod and can keep each other entertained for hours. My mom has told me that if she could have spoke to God and picked out every aspect of a boy to be her own son, it’d be Zach every time. But what really got me was the relationship between Zach and my Dad. They first bonded over my Dad buying Zach his first cigar at Harbor Fest, but it quickly grew into them being the best of friends. I remember my dad telling me many years ago that Zach was the type of man he had hoped I’d find one day. I feel so lucky to have found a man who completes me and loves me so well, and at the same time is the brother and son my family has always wanted.”
Are you crying yet? Because I definitely did reading those words Lizzie typed to me. For Zach, he realized Lizzie was the one during a college Fraternity Formal and told me that Lizzie took his breath away. When their night was winding down he told Lizzie that he never wanted “this” to end. Well Zach… now you are married to the love of your life and if I like to think that I know a little something about fate and true love and I can guarantee you that you and Lizzie are exactly that!
Congratulations to Lizzie and Zach!
