A love story ten years in the making, Laura and Jonathan have a tale for the ages. They dated briefly when Laura was a senior in high school but time pulled them apart. Six years later, Laura was preparing to move to Italy to be an Au Pair when her high school sweetheart popped back into her life. In the ultimate romantic gesture, Jonathan drove from North Carolina to Virginia to surprise Laura before she left, and when she opened the door she found Jonathan on her doorstep with a bouquet of flowers and a simple message: She was the “one that got away”, and he had never stopped loving her. They quickly realized how strong their connection was and the strength of their love helped Laura decide to cancel her trip to Italy to build a life with Jonathan.
