Ciara's Proposal in Detroit Institute of Arts

How We Met

We met in college. I worked at the recreation center, and he was always there. We noticed each other then, and Jake even sent me a valentine through a school fundraiser, but we didn’t start dating until we happened to move in to houses next door to each other a year later.

How They Asked

Our anniversary is April fools day. On our anniversary in 2019, he insisted I take the afternoon off work because he had a big day planned for us. We went to the Detroit Institute of Arts, which is also where we went on our first date, and he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring pop. I thought he was pulling an April fools joke, and I did not think it was a very funny one. But then, he said April fools and pulled out my real ring. It was a perfect proposal and our friends and family love the story. Afterwards, he took me to dinner and I walked in and both of our families were there to celebrate with us!
