Maggie and Caleb were madly in love and knew in their hearts that the time had finally come for them to get married. They had planned the special event for months and had carefully thought of every detail. They wanted their day to be perfect. But, little did they know, nothing could have prepared them for a surprise that would cause Maggie to faint at the altar. Although they had been through a lot together, they never expected this.
They had known each other since attending the same high school in Asheville, North Carolina. They had mutual friends as well, so the two ending up together seemed to be the work of fate. The thought of dating Caleb had crossed Maggie's mind before, but she never thought that it would ever happen. On the day of their wedding, however, Maggie found something out about Caleb that she didn't quite know how to deal with.
When Maggie and Caleb had completed high school, however, the pair began to see each other differently. Maturity had changed their priorities and something had changed, but neither of the pair could pinpoint exactly what or where. But both Caleb and Maggie knew that they wanted more.
After deciding to date, they knew that it was worth the wait – and it was what they both had wanted all along.
Maggie and Caleb had both been diligent students at school, and they were both working towards their own goals. They supported each other, encouraging the other to reach the goals that they had set for themselves.
Caleb desperately wanted to be a Marine, and nothing would stand in his way. But what the unsuspecting pair never anticipated was that, in time, they would become a lot more than just friends. And, soon, they would be internet-famous.
It was only in 2013, however, that the pair eventually gave in to their growing feelings toward one another. When they started dating officially, their families weren't the least surprised. As the relationship grew from strength to strength, Caleb and Maggie were ecstatic.
And it wouldn't be long before they decided to take the relationship to the next level.
Caleb had no doubt in his mind that he wanted to spend his life with Maggie. He knew that she was the love of his life. So, the only thing left to do was to tell her how he felt. He visited a jewelry store and picked out the perfect engagement ring.
Even though they were young, Caleb knew that Maggie was the only woman for him. But did Maggie feel the same way?
After asking Maggie's parents for permission, all he needed to do now was pop the big question. When the day arrived, he felt his heart race as he asked Maggie to be his bride and took the ring out from his pocket.
It seemed like an eternity waiting for her answer, but she said yes. At the time, Caleb and Maggie were only 22 years old. But they knew that their love would be enough to overcome any obstacles that came their way.
Although Maggie was usually unflappable, the stress of planning the wedding began to take its toll on her. And Caleb began to worry, too. All the preparations were a lot more than they had been expecting and took far more time than they had initially imagined.
They found that they were spending less time together, and it put strain on their relationship. But would it all be worth it?
