Danielle and Christopher

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Grandville, Michigan at a NPC Bodybuilding competition

How We Met

Chris and I are both 30 years old and we will both tell you that we were 110% meant for each other. After a number of disappointments and heartbreaks and one failed engagement (on my end), Chris and I met via Tinder in early August 2018. At that point, we had both given up on the idea of finding a suitable partner and were simply looking for new friends (online dating is rough these days!) Our first date was at the gym (haha) and we naturally got food afterward. We squatted in the gym together, ate some grub, and had the best conversation. By the second date, we were in love, and the rest is history.

If you were to ask me what my idea of a perfect man is, even prior to meeting Chris, I would tell you this:

Someone with a sweet soul and a heart for Jesus.

Someone who is passionate about physical fitness.

Someone who is encouraging and patient.

Someone who is taller than me, ideally with some facial hair, a head full of hair, and warm & welcoming eyes.

Someone who pushes me in every facet of my life.

Someone who is silly but the hardest worker in the room.

Someone who is a family man and will make a good father.

This is Chris to a tee. He is everything and more than I could have dreamed of and we both believe we were placed in each other’s lives in perfect divine timing.

How They Asked

We have already chased and achieved dreams together (in one short year!) We have opened a garage gym for business, we have both excelled in our careers and him in school, and we both competed in our first bodybuilding show. During mine, I not only earned a few first-place trophies and a sword, but the best gift of all…. a diamond ring from my very best friend.

Chris got on stage and gave the most heartfelt speech and ended it by asking me to be his wife. Until our wedding day comes, it will remain the best day of my life.
