Cailyn and Eric

How We Met

Eric and I have known each other since middle school, but as the saying goes “good things come to those who wait” we didn’t start dating until we had both ended up in Orlando after moving from Atlanta unknowingly close to the same time. When Eric was a teenager he sat on the steps of Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre overlooking the city of Paris and knew that If he could find the right girl, that was where he would propose one day.

How They Asked

About two months before our trip to France, my mom had suddenly passed away so while we were there Eric and his family took me into the most beautiful church and we lit a candle in honor of my mom.

Not ten minutes later, Eric brought me out onto the same steps he sat on as a teenager and asked me to be his wife. Fairytales would have a hard time comparing to this moment and it felt as if all my dreams had come true in that instant.
