Tell us your love story: Groom: We met spring semester freshman year while walking on the quad of Georgia State University. We were both freshman, however , she had just graduated high school, and I was fresh out of the Navy. During the initial courtship, I knew she was the sweetest person I had I ever met. She was always smiling, or as we used to say “cheering!”

Bride: On our first date, I felt so comfortable around him, it just seemed like it was meant to be.

What do you love best about each other?

Bride: His sense of humor and the fact that I never feel worried around him. He really is my best friend.
