Allison and Kevin had planned their big day to the most minute detail. Guest lists were finalized a year in advance, hundreds of dresses were modeled before they found the right fit, venues, menus, and florists were sampled, tested, and chosen, and photographers were booked to capture the happiest day of their lives. Cameras flashed and pearly whites gleamed. Allison thought this day couldn’t get any better, then squinted. Her sister walked through the outdoor clearing. Then, Allison’s jaw dropped.

Young Love

Allison Gerding and Kevin Kruger met in Norman, Oklahoma. They worked in separate sectors and never crossed paths in their youth. Eventually, they finally met. While their first meeting focused on their education, family, and interests, the conversation somehow made its way to animals. They immediately hit it off. Neither of them could imagine how their shared love of animals would blossom into so much more.

Allison worked as a Digital Account Executive at Heritage Publications. Apart from managing projects and digital campaigns for clients, she also assisted with clients. She was a people person. Kevin was a coach for the Northern Arizona University basketball team. Their daily schedules never crossed. They were both passionate about their careers, working in their dream jobs. But that didn’t make their romance easy.

Little Time

Kevin spent much of his time shooting hoops with Torry Johnson, a skilled player hoping to make his way into the NBA. Like many before Torry, Kevin spent countless hours training athletic hopefuls every day, seven days a week. Kevin had his eyes on the prize, assisting his father, Lon, an ex-Rebels coach. Kevin hoped to follow in his father’s footsteps, which is why he became a standpoint point guard for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He didn’t expect this distraction.

Kevin never expected to fall in love so quickly. It was early days when Allison mentioned her adoration of four-legged balls of fluff. He wondered if she meant cats or dogs. On their second date, his worries disappeared. Allison was a beautiful brunette who was passionate, kind, and ambitious. Finally, Kevin found someone he could picture a future with. But did she feel the same?

Allison had her own worries. In a career dominated by males, she constantly feared being overshadowed and forgotten. She had to be better, smarter, and think faster than any other male. Relationships meant marriage. Marriage meant children. Children meant time off. Time off meant an inconvenience. Inconvenience meant fewer opportunities. Allison had to sacrifice plenty to where she was. Now she found herself in a predicament.

A Ring

It wasn’t long before Kevin got down on one knee. He clung to the ring, fearing it would slip from his clammy hands. His voice quivered as the question slipped from his lips. He looked up to Alli. They hadn’t been together long but he was sure she was the one. He was never as sure anything else in his life. He didn’t know how it was going to plan out, but he would work hard. He would help her get to wherever she wanted to go. Would that be enough?

A Decision

Allison could hear her heartbeat. Her entire body was on fire. Her mouth was as dry as sand. She always wanted a family. She didn’t want it to influence her career. They didn’t even know each other that long! She couldn’t think. “Yes.” The word escaped before she even realized. Was this the right decision?

Why Worry About The Future?

The more time they spent together, the more Allison knew she gave the right answer. Why worry about the future when you could live in the present? She was looking forward to building a life together. But first, they had to plan a wedding. It took months of hard work, tears, and laughter, but eventually, the big day came. Allison and Kevin thought they had planned everything to a T. But they didn’t expect this surprise.
