Gina and Michael

How We Met

I had known Michael from elementary school. He was a year older than me but I always saw him around school. He graduated, moved on to high school and I had moved. Years later I had gotten a friend request from Michael on Instagram. I knew who he was but didn’t think anything of it so I just added him and that was it. Two years later I had posted about wanting to meet new people and he had messaged me his phone number. We started talking non stop and found out we had a lot in common! I found out one of my friends was also dating his best friend so we decided to go on a double date and the rest is history!

how they asked

Recently I graduated from college so I wanted to have a graduation party to celebrate. In the middle of the party my mom came out with champagne to make a toast which I thought was sweet. My parents made a speech that made me cry, it was so nice. Moments later Michael started his own speech, which I was surprised because he is really shy. He said how proud he was of me and how happy he was to have me in his life. Next thing I knew he was down on one knee asking me to marry him!

It was really special and I’m glad that all of our family and friends were there to celebrate with Michael and I.
