Our dogs have the same name. Clearly, this was meant to be. I adored these two from the minute I skyped with Michelle more than a year ago. I didn’t even know Brian until the engagement session but the way Michelle spoke about him, I just knew he had to be a keeper. She was clearly in love (and Brian totally smitten) and that was only more evident on the wedding day. These two met at a mutual friend while Brian was in town visiting. Michelle, lucky for her, was poorly prepared for what would end up being a chilly night and Brian gave her his coat. That was literally the only exchange they had that night. The next day, Michelle texted Brian to say thank you and multiple messages later, Brian decided to stay in town a bit longer to see what this gal was all about. Two deployments, countless days away, and one crazy dog adoption later, these two have survived a ton together as a couple and will now face the rest of the world together as a married couple. I could not be happier for these two!
