How We Met
Jonathan and I met online in February 2018. The connection was instant and within a week Jonathan was driving two and a half hours to meet me and take me on our first date! We spent the whole day together and by the end of the night I turned to him and said, “My parents have a security camera on the front porch so unless you want an audience you should kiss me now.” Three weeks later we were saying “I love you” for the first time. It felt crazy but we knew it was right!
How They Asked
Jonathan and I have a band together, Becky & Jonny, and we had released a song near Christmas called, “So What Do You Say?” It’s about two people being shy about their feelings for each other and using the holidays as an excuse to get closer!
The first verse says, “I’ve never been kissed under mistletoe under the pale moonlight. Oh, I’d like to try at least once before I die So what do you say? Will you meet me tonight?” Little did I know, Jonathan had recorded a secret verse that December.
On April 20th, 2019, Jonathan organized his brother and sister in law shooting a music video for our song. At the very end of the shoot we were doing a shot of us walking down the beach. Suddenly Jonathan turns to me and starts to sing, “I’ve never been so very much in love. My dear you have my heart. Oh I’d like to be husband and wife,” and he drop down to one knee and sang, “So what do you say? Will you marry me?” And of course I said, “yes” but only after saying, “I knew it, I knew it!” about a dozen times.
