How We Met
Steven and I met when we were sophomores in high school through a mutual friend who was on FaceTime with him.. it was a casual hello! Nothing more, that is until I saw him at the mall with another mutual friend and I decided to call him out (I was very shy so I have no idea how I was able to do this😂) “Steven!” I said, as he was walking towards me I waved! He then said: “Hey! Are you the ally?” I replied: yes, I’m the ally haha!
We then talked a little more. He asked me about the church and I told him the church I went to and invited him. We then went our separate ways without thinking of anything more. Throughout the days we would talk here and there very casually. About two weeks later he showed up to church on Sunday, he even met my parents! From then on we’ve been inseparable and the rest is history😊
How They Asked
I’m a sucker for birthdays so I was extremely excited mine was coming. My mom and dad wanted to have a cookout and cut a cake for me. My cousins and aunts were there it was very nice. Steven even got me the cutest cake ever! In my mind we were just gonna have a cookout and probably watch a movie after, nothing crazy. Little did I know that I was about to get proposed to!! Steven had already asked my parents for their blessing and had told them the plan of how he wanted to propose. Everybody was in on the plan and I had no idea!
So back to the cookout, everybody had eaten we were having a good time, then we cut the cake and it was so yummy!! At around 6ish he asked me to get ready because he had dinner reservations for us. I was so surprised and so excited! We then said bye to my parents and everyone at the cookout.
My parents and everyone was acting super cool so I wasn’t suspecting anything at all. We were driving there and halfway through he said put this on… He hands me a blindfold and I was like what?! Where are you taking me haha! He replied with: “it’s a surprise!” I was like okay! So I put it on and he parks the car.
We wait a few minutes. He gets out of the car and takes me out, we started walking and I kept thinking what restaurant did you bring me to?! He kept guiding me and we stepped on like a little pier and my first thought was “did you bring me to the boathouse?!” He said “maybe haha” he then takes my blindfold off, and I saw petals on the ground and I was just like “oh my gosh!!” We walked a bit more and he got behind me while I read Marry Me? spelled out in candles.
As I turned around he got down on one knee and proposed! I quickly said yes!! It was the easiest yes of my life! I could not believe it, I was shaking and crying. I said “oh my gosh!” A million times! The sweet part of this is that my parents were watching the whole thing through FaceTime! They screened it to the tv at home so everyone was able to experience it as well! It was the best day ever!
