How exactly is it possible that you’d meet a person and immediately know they are the other human you’ve been waiting for? For Anthony, he had been longing for someone. He longed for love and he wrote about that love for years prior to the day he married her.
Victoria was a beautiful, independent young woman with an unstoppable career. When she met Anthony, she knew she had met someone special. But, little did Victoria know how blessed she would be to meet someone who possessed such a heartful, old-soul commitment to finding his soulmate.
Anthony proposed to Victoria on October 29, 2019. They married on May 23, 2020, in a small ceremony surrounded by family in her own backyard. On the day of their wedding, Anthony shared the letters of love he had written to her long before their “I Do’s”. In honor of February, we share Anthony letters to Victoria in a special Valentine’s Day submission…

I have written you letters for almost two years now and something changed as I was starting to write this one. I could find the words to start. I don’t know what and I can’t explain it, but something in my soul tells me that this letter is more important than the other ones.
Even now, as I catch myself trying to be perfect while writing this because my heart is full, and hope that one day you will read it. I honestly believe it is because I met someone that makes me want to be better. And not because she has said anything, but because having her in my life makes me want to keep her here. She doesn’t even know it, and she likes me for me, but that has not stopped me from being the best, the best for her. The greatest pleasure I have in my life is making people laugh. I like to believe God said to himself, “That will be Anthony’s gift to the world.” And now, I find myself in awe as I stare at this girl while she makes my cheeks hurt from laughter every time I am around her. I am never the most enjoyable person in the room when she is there – and it is the greatest gift I never knew existed…
All my love,

I’m writing you today because I feel very far from you. Maybe it’s something to do with the fact that I just felt the long weekend with my friends on the lake and you weren’t there. I know it shouldn’t matter, but I wish you were with us. Yes, it’s always a little weird being the only single person out of 30 people, but mainly I missed you because that is another memory without you in it. I don’t feel lonely or anything like that. I am just disappointed I am still not enjoying your presence. I want to start making memories together. I want to miss you when you are not around. It’s funny. Teo things happen every single time I am around a bunch of couples. There are two main topics of discussion. One everyone has to talk about the fact I am single and one person bitches to me about their significant other. It never fails. And one thing has become very clear to me. I want something different. I want something real. Something that can’t be explained. I want to love you more than I thought was possible. Over time, I have been able to watch and learn from all the couples around me. The main thing I have learned is that when it comes down to it, I want to meet my soulmate. I think that you are out there and that we are meant to find each other. I might be wrong, but I will make one clear-cut promise to you. I will continue to suffer and struggle until our day comes. I do not care how long it takes. I will hold on tight and wait for you. We will both stand in front of our people and know this is what it was all for and this is why it took so long. I had to write you today because I believe our souls are always connected and today, my soul longs for yours. I wanted to feel close to you today. So until the day comes when I can look at you and tell you that you saved my life, I hope you’re having the best day ever. We will have so many more together soon.
All my love,
Anthony proposed to Victoria in October 2019.

Today is our wedding day! I cannot even begin to try and describe how I feel. I love you more than anything in this entire world. God made you the perfect person when He made you and for you to choose me is somthing I will truly be grateful enough for. I look forward to marrying you for everything forever. You are my life, my love, and my best friend. I know this letter won’t do my life for your any justice. So I want you to read this letter that I wrote for you 10 days after we met. Maybe it will give you an idea that I have loved you for my entire life.
All my love,
Congratulations to Anthony and Victoria. May you be forever blessed with God’s love. Happy Valentines Day from Unconditionally Her.
