How We Met
Brandon and I have known each other for 8 years. His sister and I were best friends in college and she would always joke that she “has a single brother.” I would laugh and say “no thanks.” We went on our first date years later. He called me out of the blue and said he liked me more than a friend and wanted to take me out. I laughed.
We went out, and the rest is history. Turns out he had liked me all this time, and I had no idea. His persistence toward me has marked me for life. This is a once-in-a-lifetime love, and I am forever grateful that fate brought us together. He is my exact opposite and perfect fit. I can’t wait to marry the love of my life.
How They Asked
I work with my parents and they had asked me to plan a team party. For the last month, I have been giving updates in meetings, getting budgets approved, and nailing down details. I showed up at the party and saw my mom and sister there waiting for me. Brandon had recorded a video basically saying the whole party was a trick me and it’s time to get dressed up!
I went to a hotel suite which had three dresses he had picked out. My mom, sister and I got ready. As I walked out of the hotel, I came down to find all of my friends and family and the bottom of the stairs. There I saw Brandon waiting.
We all had tears in our eyes as he asked me to be his wife. He designed the ring and had it custom made. He then had a jet ski waiting at the doc and I kicked off my heels and cruised. I was totally surprised and overwhelmed by the amount of love I felt!
