His and Hers vows books.

      Zachary and Gabby met each other while in middle school. She describes him as the typical shaggy-haired football player that all of the girls were into. Gabby was the middle school cheerleader who always claimed to not have a crush on Zach. One year later Zachary asked Gabby to be his girlfriend and she was thrilled, her parents were not as thrilled. Who knew such a beautiful relationship could come from a silly middle school crush.

      Their proposal story begins with a family cruise. As to be expected on any family vacation there were going to be lots and lots of family photos taken. Zachary's mom and Gabby had planned a family photoshoot on the beach before they hopped on the cruise ship to start their vacation. While taking pictures Gabby notices that most of the family begins to migrate behind the photographer, at this point, she didn't think anything of it yet. Then Zachary takes her hand and starts walking her towards the camera. They walked up to a metal rose that looks exactly like the rose in Beauty and the Beast, which just happens to be Gabby's favorite movie! Zachary bends down to grab the rose and begins to say the sweetest words to Gabby followed by asking her to marry him. Of course, she says yes! Let the cruising and wedding planning begin!

      As Zachary and Gabby look back on their wedding day they enjoyed being able to spend their special day with all of their family members and friends. One of Gabby's favorite parts of their wedding day was the way that they incorporated her mother into their ceremony. They had a photo of her ushered down the aisle and sat in her seat that she would have sat in if she was still here. Gabby also had a small photo of her connected to her bridal bouquet as well as a photo of her mother and father on their wedding day attached to her father's boutonniere.
