Do you believe in fate when it comes to love? The story behind this wedding that took place in Florida last weekend will certainly make you believe.
Amy Giberson and Justin Pounders first met as toddlers at Sunshine preschool in St. Petersburg, Florida. They were smitten with each other – – a schoolyard “romance”, playing tag and and hanging out at the sandbox together. But like many first loves, they drifted apart when their families moved and they went to different elementary, middle and high schools. Eventually, they would forget about each other altogether.
Until 30 years later – – when they were matched on Match.com back in 2014. After a year of dating, Amy and Justin finally put it together that they had been close friends at preschool so many years ago.
Well, they exchanged vows on Saturday in their hometown of St. Petersburg in front of 200 friends and family. And my expresses their situation beautifully. She says, “I truly feel it was fate. Our hearts met at the age of 3 and we had our own journeys to go through for 30 years, but ultimately our hearts were meant to love each other.”
