How We Met
Carson and I met when I was a Junior in high school and he was a Sophomore. We had been in choir together but had no idea each other existed. We went to Washington DC for a choir trip in March of 2015 and had mutual friends. He started hanging around my friends and we ended up becoming great friends after the trip. He took me to my Junior prom on April 25th and we started dating April 28th, 2015.
How They Asked
My partner took me ring shopping in September of 2019. We had been dating for almost four and a half years. I had a feeling we were getting engaged soon but I did not know what he had planned. I picked out some rings and that was the extent of my involvement. Little did I know that in October he took both of our moms to help him pick out one ring and customize it. We had a family vacation planned to Jamaica in December of 2019 and that was when he decided he wanted to propose.
He traveled with the ring in his carry on and when we arrived at the resort he scheduled a candlelit dinner on the beach. On December 18th, that afternoon he told me to get ready and that we were going to have dinner together just us two. Around 7:30 we walked out to the beach and our table was set up for us to have dinner.
A photographer walked over our table while we were eating our salad and had us pose and that’s when I knew he was definitely proposing. It was gorgeous and something we will always remember! We are going back to Jamaica in June 2021 to get married!
