Heather & Kathleen ABC Giveaway Finalist

Heather & Kathleen
Date of Wedding: May 4th, 17
Heather & Kathleen have been together for about two years;  the moment Kathleen saw Heather she knew she wanted to marry her.  The couple met online and lived in different states their first year of dating. Kathleen waited until they were under the same roof for a respectable period of time before popping the question. All in all the couple has been happily engaged for five months.
The couple love Star Wars and because Kathleen is marrying the best girl in the world she has agreed to incorporate a Star Wars theme into the wedding.
The couples entry:
This entry isn’t for me but for my fiancé, Heather. She deserves to win more than anyone. Let me tell you why.
A little over twenty months ago my fiancé and I braved the online dating world. After a series of horrible ( and I mean horrible) bad first dates somehow I met the person that would change my life. All it took was an impromptu selfie picture with her dog.
Max ( the pug) was abused before my fiancé adopted him. As a result of the abuse he was left with a broken jaw which caused his tongue to hang out. The picture that caught my attention included her and Max both with their tongues hanging out. Probably not the most flattering picture one could post as a profile picture but i thought it was adorable. Of course I was too shy to send her a message so I did what any shy person would do and sent her a “wink” instead.
Fortunately for me she was a lot more forward than I was and actually sent me a message. To this day I’m still not sure what intrigued her about me but after a month of back in forth emails and phone calls we made the decision to meet in person. I should also probably mention that she was located in Tucson, AZ at the time.
Meeting a stranger especially in another state leads to all kinds of thoughts like, “Is she a psycho”, Am I being ” catfished “? Could she really be a he? With those possibilities running in my head I decided to take a companion, my ferocious Jack Russell, Maya.
Six hours, two stops, and one navigational error later, me and Maya had arrived.
My ferocious Jack Russell was all licks and wiggles the second this beautiful blue eyed woman walked up to my car. To my relief she wasn’t a man, she was a real person, and from what I could tell, not a psycho.
For over a year we carried on a long distance relationship, both of us taking turns every three weeks to make the six hour trip each way between Albuquerque and Tucson. The drive itself says dedication. Anyone who has ever made the drive can empathize. Like every long distance couple we had to have the discussion about our future and where that would be.
Ultimately, my fiancé gave up her job, her family, and her home to take a chance on a future with me.
I’m grateful for her each any every day and thankful that she made the sacrifice that she did to be with me.
I’m also grateful for that little pug, Max, who we both credit for bringing us together. The little pug with a hanging tongue and the beautiful woman next to him. Thank you Max. Max unfortunately passed away five months later.
In tribute to Max my fiancé adopted another dog named, Murray, to give him a better life in his golden years.
Now we are a happy blended family with two dogs and a cat. We joke about having a household of geriatric animals since they are all over the age of ten.
Our animals mean the world so when it came to the proposal naturally they were included. The ferocious Jack Russell wore a t-shirt that said “will you marry my mommy” and the newly adopted pug wore a t-shirt that read “say yes mommy”. The cat was tasked with holding the ring. Now for anyone thinking about using a cat as a ring bearer you may want to reconsider. I forgot how much the dogs love to chase the cat so when it came time for the big moment the dogs starting chasing the cat around the house. At that point I had to tell my fiancé that the ring was on the cats collar. So there you have it, dogs chasing the cat and humans chasing the dogs to get the cat. What made it even more special was that Max made it into the proposal. How, you ask? Max was sick and we knew that he wouldn’t be with us much longer so about a month before he died I asked for his permission to marry his mom. He allowed me to take a couple of pictures of him with some messages for her – one was telling her thank you for everything she had done for him, and the other was giving his approval to marry her.
I knew I wanted to marry this women a year before I even asked.
I may be biased but I think if you met my fiancé you could see that she is one of the most genuine, selfless, and big hearted individuals you could ever meet. If I could give her the world I would. Right now I’m just trying to give her the wedding she deserves. A cake of her dreams would be a start so she can get what she really wants instead of what’s in the budget.
Thank you for your time and consideration.  ~Kathleen
