Love like this doesn’t come around every day. It’s a deep, true love that is evident to everyone near the couple.

+Doug and Allison have the best love story. Allison explained it to me like this, “We’ve actually known each other our WHOLE lives, but never knew it. Crazy, right? Who knew? Well, our families did!
