I’d like you to meet Ciara and Zander. They are adorable so let me just tell you about them. They met as EFY counselors last summer during the very first week. Zander had his eye on Ciara all week long and Ciara says that she had no idea who he was. 🙂 Zander finally got brave enough to talk to Ciara and then later that evening he asked her to save him a dance that night.
So they danced and found out that they were going to be in the same sessions all summer long, which I’m told is not common. They went on their first date the next week and Zander told Ciara that he would be taking her to get ice cream. And while he did take her to eat ice cream, he instead drove her up in the mountains and had a cooler with ice cream and bowls. Ciara said, “we talked for hours and it was so much fun and so thoughtful”. But the relationship didn’t take off for a few weeks later when they got stuck on a roller coaster together in Six Flags. “And next thing we knew, we were in love!” said Ciara.
It’s been about a year since then. When Zander proposed he took Ciara to where they first dance when they first met. There was music playing and lights hanging in the trees and according to Ciara, “it was freakin’ adorable”.
I hope you love these images as much as I do!
