At every point in a groom's love story, there comes a place in time when they just knew she was the one. Whether it was a big monumental moment, an instant feeling upon meeting for the first time, or romance and emotions that evolved over the years, check out real grooms' recollections of how they knew they would be proposing to, and marrying, their true loves.
"When I realized I didn't like doing things without her and being alone, really felt alone. When she wasn't there it felt like I was missing limbs, or I couldn't make complete thoughts. I was incomplete." —Jonathan (Sept 2016 wedding)
"We started dating in April and my family always goes to our beach house for Memorial Day Weekend so I convinced her to come for the weekend with my family. She did not realize that the family was essentially 30-40 friends and relatives who all live on the same lane. She was a trooper though ad shockingly made it through the weekend and kept coming back for more." —Michael (April 2017 wedding)
"I'm not sure I can point to a specific moment that I knew she was the one. Moving in together and seeing how our relationship changed, but ultimately improved, because of it was an important moment though. Visiting each other, spending a night or two or a vacation doesn't count. Moving in is a real test. When living together was seamless, I didn't think it could work out — I knew it would." —Christopher (November 2016 wedding)
"I knew she was the one when she was puking in my toilet from drinking too much, and I still liked her." —Raul (June 2014 Wedding)
"I knew during a trip to Ireland. There was just something that clicked on all levels. Things were good before that, but there was a different feel after just a few days and it didn't go away when we got back. It still hasn't gone away. I don't know how to describe it or put it in words. I just knew and felt that we are meant to be, and can't even imagine not being with her. " —TJ (March 2013 wedding)
