Alyssa and Shane
How We Met
Me and Shane had met online, on an app our friends had suggested to us. Neither of us was really looking for a relationship, we wanted to meet new people. But after a month or two of talking and getting to know each other, it was obvious we had a spark. We had met on a beautiful night in Los Angeles, where he had lived and where I hadn’t been before. He was so kind, funny and respectful, unlike how I’d ever been treated by someone. We explored this beautiful city and he took me to his favorite restaurant where we talked nonstop for hours, where I had realized just how much I was falling for him. It was a magical night that I’ll never forget, he treated me like a queen and stared at me like a goddess. I’ll never forget meeting the love of my life on that perfect night.
how they asked
Shane had proposed to me after a wonderful day spent at Santa Monica beach and Los Angeles. We had just gotten home from a long day and he had started to tell me how much he loved me and how much he loved spending time with me. I was so taken back by his words and humbled by his words, he was just pouring his heart out right in front of me. It was so sweet and I admit I teared up a bit, he had told me he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life and I still hadn’t known he was proposing! Then he had gotten on one knee and I started to cry, I was so happy and finally knew what he was saying. He had pulled out a unique and beautiful ring that he had bought from a jeweler on Redondo Beach, where I had grown up and gone to with my family as a little girl, and he asked me if I would marry him and I said yes in between my crying. I’ll never forget that day that day I said yes to marrying my best friend.
