Danielle and Chris

How We Met

We met online! We connected on a website and talked for a while, went on a few dates, but lost touch. Fast-forward a little over a year. We were shown to be a potential match on a different website. I (Danielle) messaged him asking how he was and to see if he would like to meet up. We have been inseparable ever since!

How They Asked

We had been together for a little over 3 and a half years. We have gone on a yearly vacation since getting together – places we both have had a shared dream of traveling to like Seattle, Portland, Hollywood, Newport, and so many others. This vacation was an Alaskan cruise!! It was halfway thru our vacation at this point and we had spent the day at an Iditarod Dog Camp, touring the Yukon countryside, and “panning” for gold. Our tour guide mentioned to look out for the northern lights as they had been forecasted to be viewed. So, late after dinner, we went up to the top deck of our cruise ship. It was just the two of us. I looked out and was ready to turn back to go inside because I was cold. My fiance pointed and said, “What’s that over there?” Completely oblivious, o turned to look and walked ahead of him. I would have kept going, but heard “turn around”. To my complete shock, he was down his knee holding out the ring I had been dreaming of!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes and asked him “what is that? Are you serious?” We didn’t end up seeing the Northern Lights that night, it was too cloudy, but we left with a permanent reminder!!
