I stood in front of a crowd of approximately 400 people with the most amazing woman by my side.

Patiently waiting for the minister to finishing talking so i could finally say “I do” and become the happiest man in the world.

This was the night my mother met my father.

They were together for 26 years and loved each other every moment of it. I gave this to my mother Christmas of 2018 and sadly she died on my birthday in January of 2019. She didn’t get to have her star chart long, but she cried when she got it because the moment meant so much to her.

For me, it’s now a reminder. I wish this was a happier message, but I assure you everyone in the family thought it was a thoughtful and meaningful gift about two people who were soulmates.

We met the way most modern couples meet… on a dating app.

I had been pretty sick of online dating and had nearly given up but took a leap of faith with Robert (mostly because he laughed at my jokes). Our first date was to the Newport Boat Parade, which is an awesome Christmas light show right before the holidays. Unfortunately, it got completely rained out. We sat in the rain for several hours laughing and talking and barely noticed that there were no actual boats going by. The next night, he made it up to me and surprised me with a walk around a different neighborhood where every house was decked out with lights.

Rob and I have talked about getting engaged for a while now, so I knew it was coming. To throw me off the scent, Rob told me that he got the ring, but it wouldn’t be ready until March. Rob and I run an adventure blog and we had a trip to Yosemite National Park planned for quite some time. Yosemite holds a special place in our hearts because Rob took me there for my first time on one of our first trips together.

Rob and I took a little stroll to see the waterfall closer. While he set up the tripod to take a picture of us I was completely preoccupied with the waterfall and the view. I heard him come up behind me and when I turned around he was down on one knee. I was completely surprised!

The day was the 4th of July and I was 18 years old. My family was invited to a party to shoot fireworks and it was that very night that I met my now fiance.

We had never interacted until that day, didn't know one another, but I instantly noticed her in all of her beauty and attitude. We mingled a bit exchanged Myspace names and that was it. Several months later her mother was in a horse riding accident and was hospitalized, so she came to live with me and my family for a while. We dated on and off after her mother recovered, we were madly in love but much too young.

We moved separate directions in our journey until about 8 years later under some unlikely circumstances we met again which leads us to where we are now, we are both older, wiser, and still madly in love. We have a house and fur babies and are excited to plan our wedding day. It's an insane story which started that 4th of July in 2008 when we met under those very stars.

This was the perfect way to memorialize the moment that set our life in motion.

I met the love of my life.

I had started a new job, while I was on my break I went to the cafeteria and noticed him and that was it for me.
Nine years later we are together and in love, and the fact that there is a site like Under Lucky Stars that can track how our day was aligned is amazing.
I chose the cell phone case as I have it with me every day and it reminds me of the very first day I saw his cute face.

November 6th, 2017 I gave birth to my first child with my husband.

I had a very hard pregnancy, I was sick almost every day for the entire day. I had to stop working sooner than planned and overall a very hard pregnancy. I was lucky enough to go into labor at home and make it to the hospital with no complications.
Once I was all set in the delivery room, the waiting game began. I labored for 12 hours before having to have an emergency C-section. In the end, both my first son and myself were healthy and happy.

I chose Under Lucky Stars because my husband never once left my side and he was nothing but amazing my entire pregnancy and labor. Not only is he an amazing husband, but he’s an outstanding father. This was such a meaningful gift for him to receive.

A story by James TA at Tampa, FL, USA on the 1st of June, 2018, at 11:30pm

I was at work the night if June 1st, 2018.

I worked in a hospital, and I was on the 8th floor when I got a text message from an unknown number. I asked who it was and i got a picture message of one of my best friends from my childhood. I grew up with her and her brother, and we hadn't spoken in 5 years. This was someone who I always wanted to be with, but the opportunity never came up. We started talking 5 years ago, and it just wasn't the right time.
So, we talked for the rest of the night and eventually, she said: "I'm coming to see you". About 30 min later, she arrives and we meet in the parking garage. I hugged her for the first time in 5 years, and all my troubles were washed away. Since that night, it's all changed.
We continue talking, but I have to leave to go to a work seminar. I hug her, and I thought it was the last time. Something in my head said "kiss her" and as I took a step away, I just said "okay", turned and kissed her. I've never felt so happy in my life. And from that moment on, my life has been amazing.
We are married now, and I finally got to be with the love of my life. I'll never forget that night.
I was in a very abusive relationship, physically and mentally. I was with someone for 3 1/2 years that cheated on me every step of the way, and we even have a child together.

But now everything is so much better, thanks to my wife.

On the 16th of October in San Jose California, I fell In love with my best friend.

Before the stars formed over us at 9:32pm, we had dinner at a restaurant that overlooked the whole city. As the night faded, my love for her grew stronger. After dinner, we parked at the highest point overseeing the beautiful city lights and was blessed with a kiss from an angel.
For Valentine’s Day, I got her this poster to always remember the best day of my life. The moment I met her, ever since then I realized I’ll always be under lucky stars with her by my side.

A story by Ian W at Zeebrugge (P&O North Sea Ferries), 8380 Brugge, Belgium on the 25th of April, 1981, at 3:00pm

I met an amazing woman.
We dated. Things weren't right at that time. We split. We kept in touch.
We married other people. I divorced. I met a new partner. We still kept in touch.
My partner contracted Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and died. She visited. We talked.
She's getting a divorce and there is a whole universe ahead of us. We just had to wait 37 years.
