When imagining the future, most people dream of a rom-com kind of love story that includes meeting by chance, being swept off their feet and falling desperately in love with a stranger.
Most times, people hope their soulmate will come riding in a chariot and change their lives forever.
Briefly.co.za gathered that a US YouTuber by the name Malibu Darby got her happily ever after, after meeting the love of her life at a friend’s wedding.
According to a tweet she shared with her followers, the two attended the same ceremony back in 2015 and did not know each other before that.
After enjoying the colourful event, it was time for the bride and groom to turn and throw their bouquet and garter to people who had lined up in the back.
“Five years ago today some stranger caught the garter and I caught the bouquet. Now he is my husband,” Darby said.
Darby and her husband Phillips jumped as soon as the newlyweds threw their flower and garter and both caught the items, which according to tradition means they are next to get married.
Months later, the two started dating and after three blissful years, they got engaged.
According to Darby, her engagement was simple but still special. Her hubby popped the question at her workplace and it was all unexpected.
“If it happened in a public place like a restaurant or park then I would have known he wanted to ask me to marry him,” she said in an old YouTube video.
On 21 September, 2019, the two tied the knot in a colourful wedding and proved that patience pays.
They spent their honeymoon in Jamaica and have been happy since then.
