Vanielle & Benjamin

Finding love 300 miles away…

Looking for authenticity can be difficult in our society, but Upward provided an unexpected opportunity for love. Ben and I began chatting on a Wednesday evening, and I knew it was the real thing by that Sunday morning after we stayed up all night on FaceTime chatting. Finding someone who loved Jesus and had a real relationship with him and could carry on a deep conversation was something new for me to experience. After 4 months of long-distance dating, Ben proposed on a mountainside

, one rainy Sunday afternoon in Maryland, his home state. I moved closer to him that fall and in May 2022, we had the most perfect wedding day surrounded by our friends and family. After years of waiting, praying, and trusting God's plan, we found love through Upward and are forever grateful. Next step—baby Davis!!
