How Did Acacia Brinley & Benn Suede Meet in the First Place?
On Instagram, Acacia once described her first experience meeting Benn in person.
“I remember the first time I saw you. I was walking past your tent at Warped tour, knowing you were there. Maybe you’d see me, and wave – and as soon as I looked into your tent I saw you,” Acacia wrote.
“My heart fluttered and my insides were screaming. I’ve never felt like that about anyone before. I never felt like I just had to have someone. Or if I didn’t, life would be over. It was hard not jumping on you and kissing you every time!”
They talked as friends, before finally becoming official a few months later.
Below are their first tweets to each other, on April 3, 2014.
Benn once did a #FlashbackFriday, and wrote, “The night I first ever met the love of my life. If I could go back in time and relive any night, this would be the one!”
“Being away from you is always excruciating, but it’s part of life & just a small part of the one we’re going to to share together.”
