We have the mission to help people find others with common core values. The love for animals and the environment are some of the principles that the veg community stands for. Veggly creates opportunities for vegans to make new friends and create new relationships and, once in a while, we hear about an amazing event, such as a vegan wedding!
When one of these stories happens we are thrilled to share it with you. For those following the stories that we post for a little while, you may remember Wil and Nathan. The couple from the US lived in different cities in Florida and met through Veggly during the pandemic. After one year of dating, they got engaged, and recently they tied the knot and had a great vegan wedding.
It was a beautiful ceremony where they showed all their love for each other. We from Veggly are very happy for having helped them meet each other. You can check below some pictures of the wedding and read the full history of how Wil and Nathan met each other.
The Complete Love Story
“I just want to say how happy I am to have found Veggly. I had enough with dating women who just couldn’t understand my ethical concerns regarding animals. Me being vegan and them being non-vegan was something that became a recurring issue. And working from home as a professional artist didn’t exactly give me many opportunities to meet women, let alone the right women. Therefore, I decided to search for a veg-friendly dating app in hopes of finding a better match. I got an account with Veggly and was happy to know that there were others out there who cared about the things I cared about.
My work, however, consumed me, and for months I hadn’t yet dated anyone from the app, that is, until June of 2020. I opened up Veggly and there she was! Her name was Wil. She was so beautiful and she was vegan too! It was her first day on the app. We started chatting, and quickly took our conversation to Instagram, and then Skype. I lived in Tampa. She lived in Miami. We were both over four hours away from each other, but that didn’t stop us from getting to know one another. We spent two and a half months talking every day before meeting in person. So, by the time we met, it didn’t take long for me to ask her to be my girlfriend. We became a couple in September of 2020.
While our relationship continued to be long distance, we made the effort to visit each other on weekends. Sometimes she’d come to Tampa. Sometimes I’d go to Miami. And other times we’d meet in the middle – exploring beaches, canoeing rivers, and camping in the wilderness. It was so much fun to have the opportunity to spend time with her, and it was always comforting to know that our diet and our ethics were never going to be an issue.
Eventually, after months of long-distance dating, Wil accepted a remote position, which gave her the opportunity to move to Tampa! Since her move, we’ve had the opportunity to grow together, and to know each other more deeply. In September of 2021, one year since we met in person, I happily asked Wil to be my wife. Without hesitation, she said yes!
We are grateful to have had the opportunity to meet each other. We are so excited to start the rest of our lives together. Wil tells me that she almost didn’t sign up, but that her brother encouraged her to because she “could find the one!” Well, turns out, she did. And it only took her one day! “
