TAMPA (WFLA) – A Florida couple is thanking social media for reconnecting their preschool love.

Today reports Austin Tatman and Natalie Crowe were best friends when they were 5 years old, but lost touch after Natalie moved from Florida to Connecticut.

They hadn’t seen each other in 12 years, but finding Tatman’s name in her mother’s address book prompted Crowe to look up Tatman on Facebook and send him a message. The random reunion led to a budding romance, which progressed to the once-prekindergarten sweethearts becoming husband and wife. 

Natalie told Today, “From the second that we met in pre-K we were best friends,” Crowe said. “Our parents pretty much told us that it was a very, very special bond that we shared.”

At their wedding, they re-created a childhood photo of them in a red toy jeep with a sweet picture of them together in front of a real Jeep to commemorate their “first date”. Congratulations to the happy couple.
