Alyssa and Dale
How We Met
Dale & I met for the very first time at 14. I was shadowing at his high school & struck up a conversation with him in gym class. As creepy as it sounds, I immediately had a huge crush on him. Of course, I ended up going to high school, but just my luck … he transferred schools. However, within the next year, we reconnected through the glorious world of Facebook. He would always send me sweet texts & tell me one day he would marry me. We started dating at 16. For college, he was at Yale in Connecticut & I was in Jacksonville so distance was tough.
How They Asked
Seven years later we are finally living together & decided we should take our first real trip now that we aren’t broke college kids. We went to Jamaica & as we were in the midst of our photoshoot (that he surprise scheduled) he proposed. I was so shocked and happy. Following that he had a candlelight dinner set up for us. I guess you could say it was worth waiting 7 years.
