This is Connor and Natalie's story: Connor- SGT USMC since Sept. 15, 2014. Active duty infantry squad leader, 2nd Battalion 7th Marines G Company, Currently deployed in the Middle East.
Natalie and I have known each other for as long as we both can remember, we were both born and raised in the small town of Memphis. We attended preschool together. Since then on there was a running joke in her family that she was going to marry me. Little did anyone know at the time they were right. Over the years we crossed paths occasionally, after pre school I stayed in Memphis and she moved to Capac, and one night after a few years without seeing each other it was love at first sight. I saw how beautiful she had become and thought I didn't have a chance. Then she came up to me and from that moment on I wasn't going to let her get away. We spent 4 short months together enjoying the summer before I shipped out to boot camp. I completely thought she was going to leave me due to the long distance and stress of a military relationship, but she had every intention of making it work. Over the next 4 years we went through a rollercoaster of events between me moving base to base across the country, long periods without seeing each other, and 3 deployment but through it all we have prevailed. No matter what situation the world threw at us, no matter how long we went without seeing each other, no matter how much the distance hurt we knew that the love we shared was something unique and worth everything. Shortly before this last deployment we decided we were tired of the distance and got married. This way we could finally live our lives together. She has been my support system and biggest fan. She is the most beautiful woman I've ever laid eyes on. She is my saving grace that keeps me going. I would do anything just to see her smile. After all this beautiful woman has been through and supported me through, she deserved the most romantic fairytale wedding ever, but due to the situation a courthouse with our parents was our special day, and special it was. I wouldn't change our choice for the world. I married my best friend and the love of my life on September 8th, 2017. Natalie will say that she didn't need a big shiny ring, elegant pretty dress, big fancy wedding or anything like that, but she deserves that and so much more. I am so happy we got married but I feel bad she didn't get the wedding she deserved. With Natalie finishing up with school and working, planning for our move to California, myself being deployed 20 of the last 24 months planning and affording a ceremony of our dreams hasn't been possible. This is the one way to make that dream a reality for us, and what better way to make that dream a reality then to renew our vows at the most romantic location, Castle Farms. beautiful long dresses
