Cassandra and Edgar

How We Met

I first met the love of my life 10 years ago, when we were both sophomores in high school. I was walking with my friend on campus near the PE lockers, and she saw one of her friends and said hi to him. Not knowing he was going to be my future fiancé, she introduced us and we became friends. As time went on, we got to know each other, had a few classes with each other and became best of friends. We started dating about a year after meeting each other and it’s safe to say, he’s my high school sweetheart.

How They Asked

To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, Edgar told me that he had a surprise date planned for us. He first picked me up and took me to the cemetery to visit my little sister, Chelsea who had passed two years ago. Edgar knows how important Chelsea is to me and how much I wish she was there to celebrate all of the milestones in my life. When we got there, he had two bouquets of flowers, one for her and one for me. It was the sweetest and intimate moment. He then said it was time to go to the restaurant, but didn’t want me to know where. So he blindfolded me the whole car ride there. As we were driving, our song since high school starts playing and the car eventually stops. Still blindfolded, he guides me as we walk. He then removes the blindfold and were standing in our high school, at the same exact spot where we first met, near the PE lockers. My heart instantly drops.

Cassandra and Edgar's Engagement in Northwood High School

He drops to one knee, pulls out a red box from his pocket and says, “Cassandra, this is exactly where I remember seeing you for the very first time. I’ve wanted to do this for the longest time. You are my everything and I love you so much. Will you marry me?” Okay, not sure if it was in that exact order word for word. I was in complete shock. I could not feel my body, my mind could not process what was going on. All I knew was that the love of my life had just asked me to marry him, and it was the easiest decision to make. I said yes! Just when I thought it was just the two of us in the world, a crowd of students playing sports started clapping and cheering us on. That’s when reality hit. I’m marrying my high school sweetheart!
