ANNAPOLIS USNA WEDDING PHOTOS
Zach and Brandi are highschool sweethearts. And they were so committed to each other that they continued their relationship long distance when Zach moved to Annapolis Maryland to attend the Naval Academy (USNA) while Brandi stayed in Arkansas. Talk about a really long distance! Zach decided to plan the proposal during Parents weekend at USNA while Brandi was visiting him. They had been talking about marriage for a while but she didn’t have a clue when or where it MIGHT happen and she also didn’t want to get her hopes up. But as all the Midshipmen and all their friends and families were gathered in King Hall at the Naval Academy for lunch, Zach told Brandi to stand up front near the anchor so that she could hear his company say the announcements before all of the midshipmen and their families ate. So Brandi was standing near the anchor next to Zach’s family, and she started to get upset with Zach because he was running around talking to his friends instead of spending time with her. She kept thinking “What is he doing? He sees these people every day.. Why isn’t he spending time with me!” When finally Zach gets up at the anchor to say the daily announcements. But as soon as Zach started talking Brandi could hear the nervousness in his voice and that was the moment she told me she knew he was going to propose. Come to find out when Brandi thought Zach was ignoring her and just talking to his friends, he was actually trying frantically to get the microphone to work before proposing. That whole parents weekend at USNA , everywhere they went to on the Naval Academy yard, people kept asking them “hey aren’t you the ones to for engaged today?”. They’re practically famous now! Brandi and Zach had the most perfectly simple and sweet Naval Academy graduation weekend wedding. So not only were they celebrating the start of their new life TOGETHER, but they were all there in Annapolis Maryland to celebrate Zach’s graduation from the Naval Academy.
