How We Met
Mathew and I met at a gym that we had both recently started working at. As time went on we were fortunate enough to get to know one another as co workers and eventually became best friends! We spent the majority of our days together from commuting to school and work to spending days at the very beach that we had our engagement photos taken. This was the beach of one of our very first dates where we finally admitted we had feelings for one another. That period of our lives holds a very special place on both our hearts. Ever since the day we met I had a feeling that Mathew would someday be my husband.
How They Asked
Mathew had planned out a day where both of our families would be in attendance, even his brother and sister-in-law who had traveled from Mexico City. He had planned with my sister and parents to surprise me and pop champagne with everyone. But on the morning of, his excited family was eager to hear about a surprise that was rumored, he felt that I would find out if people were asking questions all day so instead he made the best decision he could have ever made. On a Sunday morning cuddled in bed with their puppy he brought out a box and put it on the bed. He asked me to see what it was and as I sat there (hair a mess and in pajamas) he asked me to marry him and to do life with him forever. We cried until we laughed and had the sweetest moment just the two of us. Still pinching myself!
