I’m kind of nervous to be sharing this video today. I have had so many emails, messages, and comments asking about our story and if we would make a video. Well, here it is. It also has our never before seen engagement at Disney! I hope you guys enjoy it. xo Allison
We would love to hear from you!

Aww 🙂 Thank you for sharing <3
What a beautiful story! I loved the little clip of the proposal 🙂 me and my husband have been together 10 years and married nearly 8 years with 3 kids as well! X
Thank you and so glad you enjoyed it! And I love that 🙂
Thank you, Michelle!
You know how much I love you two!! I completely agree, communication is key. Love love love your love story!! 😍❤️❤️❤️😍
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
Do you guys live in Iowa?? I am in Cedar Rapids!
We don't! We picked up our marriage license on the drive from California to Michigan when we were moving for law school! 🙂 It was back when only a few states had legalized marriage!
“I told one person where the ring was in case I died.” That line absolutely cracked me up! Leanne you’re killing this and I’m loving every minute! Allison, you’re amazing too but that we knew.😍😍😍😍😘and our love story is so boring! We met at church! But still magical. I love you both very much.🥰
WE LOVE YOU SO FREAKING MUCH!
This story made me cry! What a beautiful relationship y’all have! I would love to hear how you ladies got pregnant with your two girls. I’m a sucker for love/happy stories like this one ❤️
Ps. That was an awesome way to propose!!
Thank you so much, Autumn! And we will definitely be sharing about our girls!
Omg the Big Fish moment 😭 😭 yes please do more videos like this! You both speak so eloquently and really flow together so well. My husband and I have been together for 9 years too! Married for 4 on May 9th. Yessss PLEASE do a video on how you guys decided on having kids!
We will, Erika! I've already been talking to Leanne about getting her on camera more (she's not big on it, but she loves me so she tries to be a good sport 😂)
I smiled the whole video. The way you look at her just makes me smile. You can see how much you two love each other. Would love to hear about the girls! 🖤
Thank you so much, Madalyn and we will definitely be sharing about our girls!
Omg my girl is on!!! I miss you guys so much!
I can't wait to see you!
What a sweet story!! ☺️ Y’all are the cutest. I would love to hear the baby story.
I met my husband in high school, so I married my high school sweetheart.
I love this, Alyssa! And we will definitely be sharing our baby story!
This was too cute, so many happy years watching. Also, super awesome Holyhead Harpies shirt!!!!
Thank you so much, Dawn! And if you can believe it….Leanne played on the local quidditch team and it was called the Hollywood Harpies! hahaha
Thanks for sharing your story! You two are the sweetest couple ever! 💖💖
Thank you so much, Renee! I hope you are well!
just found your channel! love you guys! your story is so sweet!!
Awe, hi Katie! Thank you so much! -Allison
Aww love at first! 😍 I call it the thunder bolt lol. I had that with my husband. We have a boring how we met story, but we got married at Seabreeze Point at the Boardwalk resort in WDW. This video was great! Would love to hear about your girls. They’re both so cute!! 💝💝 And side note we have a female cockapoo puppy that looks identical to your dog! It threw me for a second when I saw your puppy lol
AHHH! Bentley is a cockapoo! Now I really want to see your dog-feel free to send me a PM on instagram! And how cool. Boardwalk is my favorite resort and that spot is seriously gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing that with me! -Allison
I love you both soooo much!
Aww what a sweet story! And that engagement video 😍💕🤩
Thank you so much for watching!! <3
The love, and affection, that you two showed one another while telling your story was so heartwarming Allison! I loved how you both just knew that first night and haven’t looked back since. I’m so glad that you were able to include the footage from the proposal because it allowed us to celebrate the moment with you two! My husband and I were married in November as well (25 years ago, yikes!), and we don’t often meet other couples who were married in that month! I would absolutely love to hear your story of becoming parents – and I know that it would be so helpful for other young couples to hear your experience! Hugs to you both – I really enjoyed getting to know you better during this video!💗💐💗
Beth, you always make me feel so good with your comments. Thank you for taking the time to be so thoughtful 🙂 November is my favorite month! It's smack dab in the middle of the holiday season and I love how festive it feels. When is your wedding date? Ours was November 23rd, the day after thanksgiving that year! We will definitely share our story about our girls! xo Allison
Allison WDWGirl Your reply was so heartwarming Allison – thank you, it really made me smile!😊 You, and Leanne, shared your hearts in this video – so the least I could do is leave you both a “virtual hug” in my comments!🥰 All of your points about November are echoed by me for sure – although we were married on November 12th and I feel you two were brilliant in selecting the day after Thanksgiving (the whole family was gathered already!)😊 Hugs sweet friend!💐💗
Love story time! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for watching, Sharon!
Your cuteness and synchronicity reminded me of the couple interviews at the end of When Harry Met Sally! Well Done!
After first meeting as children, and also having French class together in High School (which Rob does not remember), we re-met in a bar!
I MISS YOU SO MUCH! I hope you guys are doing great. I love that you and Rob have known each other for that long <3
Wow…SUCH A BEAUTIFUL STORY!
💜💜🙂 Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for watching, Jody!
I absolutely loved watching this video and the part about your engagement definitely brought tears to my eyes. Your story is so sweet! I would absolutely love to hear the story about your decision to have kids. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this!
I met my boyfriend almost five years ago at a mutual friend’s Memorial Day party. We talked for a bit at the party and I thought he was cute, so I messaged him on Facebook that night (which was so out of character for me). He asked me on a date two weeks later and we haven’t stopped talking since the day we met 💙
I love love love your story! I feel like when you find your person it's just so natural that there is no reason for you to stop talking 🙂 And we will be sharing our story about our girls next! Thank you for watching, Kelsey!
What a wonderful love story!! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for watching, Lisa!
This made me cryyyyy, love you guys, so cute. I lost it with the engagement video
Please do one about your girls! So cute
So sad you didn't post wedding clips. (Or did I just miss that clip? – the joy's of watching while my one year old is awake! Haha) But the thumbnail… omg two GORGEOUS brides in love 🙂 so glad you two found each other. Love is an amazing thing how out a a bajillion people you can find the one 🙂
and please do the baby story!! I love these sit downs…
There wasn't any wedding video but maybe I'll share our wedding dance in a future video! Or we could do a whole wedding video! And we are definitely going to share our baby story!
My wife and I have been together 9 years this April but we waited quite a bit and got married on our 6 year anniversary. We did have a similar compromise with kids though. I agreed that my wife could go back to school for her master’s degree as long as we started a family after she graduated and we did just that and now have our beautiful 18 month old daughter. We would love to hear the story of how you had your little ones. We have our own blog about how we had ours and I think it’s an amazing way to get information out there because I remember when we started trying finding information was the hardest part!! Love you ladies ❤️🌈❤️
Congratulations on your little! And thank you for sharing, I'll have to check it out!!
Love you gilsssssss!!!! ♥️♥️♥️
Lol meeting in person is odd in 2019.
HAHAH RIGHT?? We were like…what is this!?
My boyfriend and I are about to celebrate 3 years. We met doing a musical and we were dance partners. We were best friends and fell in love. You guys are amazing and so loving. I would love to hear about Ruthie and Rosie too if you two want to share it!
Kelsey, I love this. I'm a huge musical theater buff! In fact, you'll see me sing some karaoke in these upcoming vlogs on the ship! I absolutely love your story though. I think friendship sets such a strong foundation for a relationship. And we will definitely be sharing our girls story soon! Thank you for letting me know a little more about you! xo Allison
Beautiful couple…beautiful story. Emotional at so many levels. Lots of luv from India!
Thank you so much! We appreciate your support ❤
I met my wife a bar and it was a magnetic pull towards each other too! Y’all described that feeling perfectly! Wishing you the best!
It's so magical, isn't it? Thank you! Wishing you two the best as well <3
First minute in and I’m dying “I commandeered my wife” she looks so hilariously bothered like “yup this weirdo” 😂😂 that’s THE relationship face, if your SO doesn’t make that face at you at least once a week you’re in the wrong relationship!! How do y’all remember all these small facts?!?! My fiancé and I debate all the time about the exact day we met 😂😂
I’ve been with my fiancé 7 years now also, we just got engaged a year ago (on our 6 year anniversary) and are getting married in June. We met (sort of) through work, we worked in the same mall and I used to pass his store on the way home and check him out in the window lol we started “talking” because he stole my number from the computer system when I went to purchase something from his store (and I do still have the receipt cause I’m a crazy person) he also said “I love you” super fast but it felt like good timing. People didn’t think we’d last but here we are 💪🏻💪🏻 representing the 2012ers!!
HAHA She is…but she is so supportive of me and my youtube ventures that she sucks it up and still shows her face every once in a while on the channel 🙂 She's great. Thank you for sharing your story with me too! It's weird isn't it? When you meet your person, nothing feels rushed are fast…its' all feels right. Lot's of love to you two!
Allison WDWGirl thank you so much!! Wishing you both all the continued love in the world!! 💜💜
I’m a Michigan girl too!
GO BLUE! 🙂
You guys are so cute. Thanks for sharing. I pray continued prosperity, happiness and great joy for your family. You Guys Rock:)!
Thank you so much, Teddie!
New Sub……….. thank you for sharing…….
Glad you enjoyed!
You ladies are couple goals! So sweet, and loving towards each other. I'm glad you told your story. I met my husband in 2013 at the Lowe's we were working at, we jokingly call it our Lowmance. We now have two beautiful boys and great life together.
Bahahaha I love that and love that you coined a phrase! Thank you for watching ❤️❤️❤️
Loved this story, love da love. (Straight outta ATLANTA). New subbie here.
Thank you so much for watching!
Hi just stumbled on your video and loved it so thought i'd leave you a comment. I am from the UK. I have been with my wife 11 years in sep and we have been married for 18months. We started talking to each other on facebook as we had same friends but we lived on opp side of the country. we initially met up a week after we starting talking to each other as my wife had friends who she was visiting just the next town over. We spent the whole weekend together and when she left to go home it was so hard. The following week I went to her place and since then we have only spent about 2 days apart. We couldn't be happier. I can see how much in love you guys are and it just reminds me of what my wife and I are like. Thank you for sharing your story
Thank you, Tina! And I so appreciate you sharing your story with me. It’s a when you know, you know story and I love that!!
You guys are an adorable couple. I couldn’t stop smiling while watching you. I hope you have a long wonderful and happy life together. Wish I would be around when you ladies hit my age (62) and make another video as a happy grandmother couple surrounded by kids and grandkids talking about +40 years of marriage. 😊👍❤️
Thank you so much for this comment. I read it to everyone I know 🙂 It made me so happy and if I'm still doing youtube in 40 years, we will make a follow-up video! Lot's of love! Allison
I love your engagement story! Back stage at Beauty and the Beast! How amazing!❤️❤️❤️❤️. Thanks for sharing this.
Awe thank you Jen! I hope you are well!!
They is something so awesome about you guy's, not sure what. But as l keep watching your vlogs it will show itself to me, oh l just subscribed to your channel and l love Disney movies. New Zealand subscriber. 😎 🤙🏽😎
I spoke on the phone for over a year to my wife (job related) before we met as the conversations went on we got to know each other. One day I had had enough and made the trip from Texas to Wisconsin to see/meet her. It's safe to say I was very much in love with Laurie before we met. (We just found your channel and happy to subscribe.)
Lovely story, more would be great. What kind of dog is that cutey!
We will be sharing more videos soon! He's a cockapoo 🙂 We rescued him!
Wow I haven't heard Truckstop in years! I miss it! There is no place like that anymore.
It actually makes us really sad. We had this perfect safehaven every Friday and I feel like women younger than us don't have it.
Wonderful video. So enjoyed your story. Tell us more. Thanks!!
Thanks, Patty! There will definitely be more videos about our family coming soon!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful story with us!!
You’re so welcome, Nicole! I’m so glad you enjoyed it ❤️
you guys are so lovely <3
Thank you so much, Jamie! xo
Such a sweet story! You guys, I am crying! So sweet! (Okay, well the bar isn't exactly sweet but seeing each other like that…amazing!) Thank you so much for sharing!
Awe, Laurel thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And I agree, bar isn't sweet but the way it happened was <3 xo Allison
I’m loving this. My husband and I also met at a bar that’s similar to coyote ugly called blind horse and the girls get on the bar to pour some sugar on me. Such a classy story. It would be the cherry on top if I was one of the girls on the bar but nope!
Oh my gosh that's HYSTERICAL! I didn't know they had more bars like it! Where is it located??
Hi. Wonderful story. Thanks for sharing. I think your story is exceptional in the way you pair- bonded immediately. But also it is such a normal American love story, in every way. Congratulations on having such a successful marriage. Your children are lucky to have you as loving moms.
My husband and I met in March 2007 through friends… after about a week we both told each other we loved each other! I knew almost right away that I wanted to spend my life with him. We were actually engaged 4 months after meeting! We got engaged at the Blue Bayou restaurant in Disneyland and he had told me that he wasn’t proposing on the trip so I legitimately didn’t think he’d ask me there! We were married in June 2008 so almost 1.5 years after we met. He is my best friend and we just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary last year in Disneyland! We are huge Disney fans and go there as much as possible. We’re headed to Disney World this October with my whole family and we can’t wait to take our three kiddos there again. My eldest son was born in May 2010 and my daughter was born in November 2012 and my youngest son was born in July 2015 so I feel like I have a ton of connections to your beautiful story! I love listening to other people’s love stories and yours is amazing.
YES! Absolutely. Our stories sound very similar! And how romantic; the Blue Bayou is such a gorgeous restaurant! I live near Land but World has the nostolgia piece for me (that's where I grew up going). Do you have a preference on which one you go to? Where are you staying in October? That sounds so amazing! I am a travel agent that specializes in large groups so I plan a lot of big family trips; It's one of my favorite kinds of trips to plan! I'm sure you will have an amazing time! Thank you for sharing your story with me and watching mine! Lot's of love xo Allison
I love your story!! 💕💕
Thank you, Krystal!
Thank you for sharing your story! One of these days, we will share our "How We Met" story on our channel too. I can see the love you both have for each other every time you look at each other.
I'm so glad you enjoyed it!!
1) the slip up of calling it MGM made my heart sing. I always call it that.. along with "Downtown Disney" 2) Your proposal video made me cry! It's so cute <3.. congrats on a beautiful story and love!
my love story is almost 20 years long. We were friends for 7 years before we ever dated and are celebrating 10 years together and 5 years married this year!
It'll always be MGM to me 🙂 And I LOVE that we still have Downtown Disney is SoCal! I'm so glad you enjoyed the video. AND CONGRATS!! I love how long your story is and think it's so magical…and hearing all of those years together sounds like you have a really beautiful story yourself <3
Beautiful story 💞🌸 you guys are adorable! Yes more videos 😉😘
Thank you, Erica! The second installement (Our Girls' Story) is up. And there will be monthly videos. Glad you enjoyed it!
I am SO happy for you !!!!!!
Thank you, Barb! We are very lucky to have each other 🙂
I can’t thank y’all enough for sharing your story. My daughter, born female, came out to us as transgender a few years ago. I told her I loved her no matter what. However, my mothering heart was full of concern that her future might not be happy. (I legit had no clue about LGBTQ issues and I’m definitely still learning!) Seeing the genuine love and happiness between y’all set my mind at ease and gives me hope she’ll have a happy, healthy future! Y’all have given me a great gift! Thank you! 💕
I imagine that has been a huge shift in your life. My mom always said that when I came out, it wasn't bad, it was just different. The best analogy she used was "I had packed for Hawaii and arrived in Alaska. It's not that Alaska isn't beautiful, it's just I wasn't prepared." 🙂 Lot's of love to your family during this adjustment. xo Allison
Love you story!
Thank you, Claudine!
What a sweet story! Thank you for sharing!
Glad you enjoyed it, Betty!
When you know, you know! Had a similar experience with my husband. We met, immediately moved into an exclusive relationship, and said 'I love you' within a few weeks. Our relationship years later is deeper and more complex and yet I look back and still see that I just knew we were meant to be within a couple weeks. Congratulations to you both. Wishing you a beautiful life together.
Thank you <3
The woman in pink is beautiful and affectionate person. The comment that was made.. If we could live on love alone, we could or would live for an eternity. Beleive it or not this is absoultely posssible and true becasue we are spirit beings inside an earthlly bodies.
Oh, yeah…I knew they were different in personalites..introvert and extrovert..
Love you guys. Me and my fiancé met online. And now are planning our Nov 2019 wedding to blend our families which will total 7 girls including us.
Congrats on your upcoming nuptuals and I wish ya'll the best!
this is such a cute story you guys are soooo cute together im so happy you found each other
Thank you Daniela <3
24:36 Yes, the library looks like the Great Hall at Hogwarts ❤️❤️❤️
You both ooze the love 💗 Really true love and old fashioned story 💗
This is great and yes I would like the baby story as well
“Can I take a Diet Coke break?” #RELATABLE 😂 💕*New Subscriber, came from your TIKTOK and Instagram. Love you guys!*💕
Loved your story!! Thanks for sharing!
You both are one of the cutest couples I've seen. I love how your story is like a movie, love at first sight😍.. It's inspiring to know that love like this exists and I hope you know that you give hope to those who haven't found it yet. 🤗🤗Hugs to you both.
Awe thank you!! 💕
@Pixie Dust & Parenting You're more than welcome!💗
I love it! Thank you for sharing! I peeped the Hamilton Book! ❤️❤️
What year did you do law school in Michigan? My niece went in 2016 til 2019
Awww to cuite love u guys ❤️❤️
Watch you guys on tiktok and think you are an amazing inspiring couple… I saw the tiktok where someone said your wife was hot and she is truly awesome. You are definitely Hot also…no offense intended
Omg I love you guys!!! I have a dog named Bentley too!!
There is such a thing as love at first sight. When I was in the tenth grade I ran into a guy and we were face to face. I had never seen him before , I got butterfly’s in my stomach and thought he was the most handsome guy I ever saw. We began dating. He was my first kiss, my first date, my one and only love. We were married when I was 21. Every time he came home from his job in the Air Force I would get butterfly’s. I actually worshipped the ground he walked on. After a year and a half of marriage he was sent overseas to Thailand for 13 months. This was in 1971 so no cell phones or face time. The day he came home I was excited to the point of hysterics! I met him when he got off the plane and he proceeded to tell me he wanted a divorce, he fell in love with a Thai girl. I almost fainted, i was actually in physical pain. My heart was broken into 1000 pieces. I have never recovered. I am 72 and still love him to this very day. You are a sweet couple and I definitely wish you much happiness in the years to come. You both won the lottery, appreciate each other.
I found Alison on TikTok and immediately came over here to subscribe. I’m straight but you guys can seriously make me reconsider 🤣🤣 I loved this video and I wish you decades of happiness together ❤️❤️
Baby story please, would love to see wedding pictures or video
I’m not bashing u at all. U interrupt ur wife a lot while she’s talking. ❤️
Hi Christina! This was our first video together and since it’s primarily my channel I definitely had a steep learning curve but people wanted the story. So yep! In this video, I definitely do. However, this video is over a year and a half old so our current content looks very different. We’ve definitely learned how to be on camera together. 🙂
Pixie Dust & Parenting I just sTared filling u guys
I had a video on my for you page, loved your personalities and came over and subscribed! Y’all are awesome! I have known my husband since we were 4! We connected almost 15 years after high school. I was divorced and lived in the same town as his daughter, coincidentally. We started talking after running into each other at a convenient store in my new town after years of not seeing each other. I eventually moved back “home” and the rest is history!
I love you guys! Your relationship remind me some of my late husband and mine. He once told me I could spend my life with a lot of different people, but your the person I can’t imagine my life without.
That magnetic feeling is exactly what happened when I met my husband for the very first time! Love at first sight!! And it was one week when he told me he loved me and I thought it was crazy, but I felt it too! We have been married 12 years. Found you today on Tik Tok so I am catching up on your videos!!
Awww 🥰 love y’all’s story!
You two are an adorable couple and I truly believe you're soul mates 💖
I follow you guys on tiktok, i just love you guys, you are just perfect, i love your honesty, your openness, your just lovely xxx
So I’m here from TikTok and omg your evolution on camera is so different from this to now 😊 Leanne seems so much more comfy on camera now. You two are so damn cute. My husband asked me to marry him in the living room of our apartment before we left to be ON THE WAY to the surprise engagement party he planned so he could ask me 🤣 because he was so nervous he said if he didn’t just ask he was going to throw up on the way there and it would have been awful 🥰🥰🥰😂 so yeah, I totally get Leanne saying you want to say all these things but then it just happens how it happens
Love you guys! Curious, did Leanne become a lawyer and are you back in LA?
I was watching you on TikTok and headed over here as soon as I found out you have a yt channel 🙂
Here from Tik Tok Love you two !!
New subscriber here! Loved this story…until the Michigan law part. I married an OSU law guy so I’m not supposed to like Michigan people. (But I actually don’t care, shhhh…)
I'm not lesbian but this is a great story…
I always see you guys on tiktok didnt kniw you have youtube….haha
I literally cry at how incredibly beautiful you two and your story is. You guys are the absolute most amazing beautiful strong women ❤.
You two are so wonderful! I loved hearing how you met and all of your content. It’s funny because I love Disney and I’ve gone back and forth on law school for a couple of years so this is truly so interesting! I know this isn’t exactly your content but I’d love to hear how you al balanced family, life in general, and law school. Thank you so much for sharing ❤️❤️❤️
This is a weird thing to say to strangers, but we would get along well. My wife and I sometimes watch your content, and always comment that afterward. I think it's the similar backgrounds, interests, and all that. Anyway, this is adorable. And RIP to all of the old lesbian/gay bars. (We've got one more lesbian bar holdout over here in Milwaukee.)
Saw you guys on a Tik Tok compilation video and immediately fell in love. Amazing couple, so genuine ❤️
You two are so adorable. I love you ladies!!
I’m here from TikTok!
I felt that connected you two felt with my wife as well! Up til then I had never experienced such a thing!
My wife and I have been together since February 2013! 😘😘😘
Beautiful love story!
