Sam and Ward met in the summer of 2010, as they were at orientation for their freshman year at college. While they connected those few days, it wasn't until their freshmen year actually started that they began to spend more time together. Their rooms were right down the hall from each other, and by the time the spring semester had started, they were officially together! And they've been together ever since! I was so proud to be a part of their wedding day, as these two were my residents when they were freshman - I got to see the beginning of their relationship and then the beginning of their marriage! It was an incredible feeling standing back on campus at CNU and reliving the beginning with them. 

It's always an honor to be a part of a wedding day, but this one will forever hold a special place in my heart. Congratulations Sam and Ward, wishing you a happily meowy and forever!
