Macy + Josiah’s Love Story (The Vanderburg’s)
Our love story began in Springfield, MO back in 2017. Josiah was in his second year at Evangel University, and Macy was in her first. During her first few days on campus, Macy and Josiah were introduced to each other. They both were taking classes, involved in campus ministries, and had mutual friends that frequently placed them in the same place at the same time.
Some flirting and banter was exchanged back and forth as we got to know each other. We spent the year going to EU events, dinner parties, sporting events, hanging out off campus, and finding out that there was a connection between the two of us. Over time, we learned how to grow together, learn together, and do life as best friends. We took time to think and pray for the person we would spend forever with, and had the clarity that we wanted nothing more than to spend the rest of our lives loving and serving each other.
In August of 2017 we became friends, on November 11, 2017 we had our first date; on February 27, 2019 we became boyfriend and girlfriend; on February 27, 2020 we got engaged; and on August 30, 2020 we exchanged vows to become husband and wife! We love our lives together now and are more than thrilled to create the future with each other. We feel blessed to be in love and honored to have each other. Cheers to forever and always!
