From the Bride: It all started back in September of 2005, I was 16, a junior at Pioneer High School & Zac was 17, a senior at Branham High School. We met on the school bus on our way to vocational trade school in San Jose. I was taking a office assisting course and Zac was taking a electrical maintenance course. I remember seeing him on the bus or on meal breaks and thinking “ohhh he’s cute but he won’t notice me”.
Zac at the time was rocking his devilock (misfits band hairstyle). I was a shy and quiet girl who would never have enough nerve to approach him. One day I sat next to him on the bus, he complimented my rock band patches on my backpack and offered me a piece of spearmint Orbit gum, of course I took it and was crushing on him after that. After a few awkward moments of seeing each other in passing, and small talk, Zac finally got enough nerve to walk me home from the school bus alone (instead of just me, him and group of friends). After walking me home after couple months, on December 15, 2005 @ 4:30 p.m, he asked me “will you be my girlfriend”, duh I said yes!!
So flash forward 12 ½ years, these high school sweethearts are still together! We have never left each others side! We have shared so many memories like family events, supporting him at his bands rock shows, vacations, road trips, hiking adventures, and anniversary trips to San Francisco every year. To this day I still have our first few years together of movie tickets, and little love notes we wrote to each other. We both can’t wait to continue making memories.
