How We Met
It all started at Target in July 2007. Christian was a cart attendant and I, Gabbie, was a frequent shopper. As Christian was pushing carts in the parking lot, I was learning how to drive. Distracted, I accidentally hit Christian so he yelled at me but I drove away. Christian then found me in the store and after a few laughs about the situation, he asked me for my phone number. I gave it to him and the rest was history!
How They Asked
I was going to brunch with my partner’s sister and cousin. We met up in Anaheim then they drove me to a park. I was a little confused because I thought we were going to hang out at a park. As we got into the park, they asked me to watch a video on their laptop. Something was up because the video was of Christian going through all of our memories together.
When we got to a gazebo at the park, our entire family, my side, and Christians, were there and they were all dressed up as Target employees- just like when we first met. I cried- ugly cried. It was so beautiful, thoughtful, and sweet to have our big family together. Christian was in the middle of the stage of the gazebo dressed like a cart attendant. He got down on one knee and publicly declared his love for me in front of everyone! Of course, I said yes!!!
