How did you first meet?
We met when were were sixteen (10 years ago!) at our after-school job. We were servers in a dining room located in an independent living facility. I worked there a year before him and I'll never forget the first day I saw him. It was "puppy love" at first sight. We became best friends and we were basically inseparable. We didn't go to the same high school, so I was always excited to go to work just to get to spend time with him.
What is the most attractive feature/qualities about your fiance?
I could write a list a mile long! But if I have to pick a few of my favorites; his sense of humor and that he makes life so fun because we are always laughing. He has the biggest heart and is one of the most self-less people I know. He's also super handsome! I love his eyes and his smile gives me butterflies still to this day.
What is your fondest dating memory?
I have so many! But I think the best memory was our first Valentine's Day. He thoughtfully planned out every single part of the evening and totally spoiled me. He gave me a promise ring that night and told me that he promised to love me forever, so, that definitely stuck with me all these years.
When did you know you were in love?
I knew I loved him pretty much right away, but I was also sixteen/seventeen and love looks a little different at that age! We've grown and matured and so has our love. There was never an "A-ha" moment for me. I just knew that I found my person and that I couldn't imagine my life without him.
What day did you get engaged?
We got engaged on December 30, 2017.
Where & how did he ask?
He took me to the beach around sunset. We looked out at the waves and talked about all the good things to come in 2018. When the sun was nearly setting -- he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. The rest of the evening we celebrated by revisiting some of the places we went on our first few dates. He took me to The Columbia in St. Armands Circle and then to Marina Jack's riverwalk where we sat on the same bench as we did the night when he gave me my promise ring all those years ago! It was the most perfect evening. I was so appreciative of how hard he worked to make that so special for us.
