Amandalyn and Omar

How We Met

Omar and I met seven years ago when we were both just teenagers. We went to different High Schools but he smoothly slides into my DMs on Twitter asking me out on a date to The Cheesecake Factory- super romantic for how old we were. One week into our fling he took me on a date to the Phoenix Zoo, which is one of my favorite places, and he asked me to officially be his girlfriend. We have been inseparable ever since- yes, we are actual High School sweethearts!

How They Asked

Omar had been planning to ask me to marry him for about a month. He pulled out all the stops-from secret dinners with the photographers, to asking my boss to change my schedule so I was off at the perfect time, he made sure everything went perfectly.

He picked me up from work and told me we were going on a staycation at one of our favorite resorts and he would be taking me on a nice dinner-this isn’t too unusual for him so I didn’t think much of it.

Once we arrived and I had gotten all done up, he took my hand and we walked towards the front of the hotel. He mentioned that before we left he wanted to show me something outside, where we rounded the corner to see the most beautiful set-up I have ever seen. We walked up the rose petal covered steps to overlook the view of Camelback Mountain and he got down on his knee. I am still in complete shock over how he managed to completely surprise me, but I could not be happier.
