Natalie Winslow and Zack Lee have known each other since they were kids. Though they went to different schools growing up, they had mutual friends and kept up with each other through their activity in sports. They both have friends with proof they liked each other long before they admitted it to each other. After their junior year of college Natalie started attending Zack’s baseball games and finally they started dating.
Zack proposed to Natalie on her birthday. He ordered a limo to take them out to dinner, and on the way to the restaurant he dropped down onto one knee and proposed. The rest of the ride was spent calling up family to let them know they were engaged. After their first dinner as an engaged couple, Zack had another surprise for Natalie. They went to Natalie’s sister’s house where both families were waiting to celebrate their engagement.
The couple was happily married on June 18 at the First United Methodist Church in Wilson, North Carolina. Zack didn’t see his bride until the church doors opened and she walked down the aisle in her dad’s arm. Zack said he will never forget the moment he first saw her in the church walking towards him in her beautiful dress.
There were many special moments throughout the day and the two couldn’t have asked for a better celebration of their love. The bride’s veil was made by her late grandmother and had been worn by both her mom and older sister. Natalie had also always dreamed of her grandpa singing at her wedding, and during the ceremony he and two of his brothers sang a few of their classic songs. It was a special moment for the family, family friends, and all the guests at the wedding.
