practically every time i read through lydia’s love story, it brings a tear to my eye. when i first read her amazing story of love and faithfulness through devastating loss, i knew that i would be honoured to share it on yegwed. these two are getting married tomorrow – and although i don’t know them personally, i am so happy for them, and wish them a wedding day that is better than they’d ever hoped. all the best, lydia and tyler!
‘in 2007, i was a passenger in a tragic car accident that took the life of my high-school sweetheart. i never, in a million years, thought something like this was going to take me and the love of my life and tear us apart. i was devastated, distraught and completely removed from the world around me. i never thought I would ever love again in my life – i just could not imagine my life any other way!
that was until 3 years later, when i attended a family friend’s wedding and i caught the garter and a mysterious man – Tyler – caught the bouquet. we did not talk to each other but posed for a quick picture taken by a family friend. exactly one year later, i ran into tyler at an anniversary party and we were hooked! i was hesitant, but something about him just made my heart ‘feel something’ again! i hadn’t felt anything like it since the last time i touched my high-school sweetheart the night before he passed. this new man (now my fiancée) was kind, funny, smart and completely my perfect match. just when i wanted to close every door in my life, God on the other hand had a different plan for me! God knew i was put here on earth for a bigger purpose and God wanted me to love again… you just have to believe!
now, after 3 years of dating, my fiancée took me to the “blue bench” where we had our first date and proposed to me! our wedding is on august 2nd and i can’t wait to be his wife! tyler completes me, understands me and he knows “my story” and loves me even more knowing I never gave up because it lead me to him! i guess in life miracles do happen, you just have to believe!’
