Cassy and Alice
How We Met
Alice and I met through mutual friends. It was new years day 2015. The night that we meet it was like we had known each other for years. We just clicked. Surrounded by friends, we spent the night laughing, dancing and talking. That very night we were supposed to stay at a mutual friends house, but as we laid there on the couch talking, I asked her if she wanted to go to my house. She had no idea I lived over an hour away. But she was up for it. The plan was to bring her back the next day. Needless to say, that never happened. For the next 5 days, we spent our time at my house watching movies, talking, learning about each other. We left the house 3 times in 5 days. It was as if we were best friends just catching up. Once I did take her back to LA, I found myself waiting to see her more and more.
She felt the same. The next weekend, she came to visit for the weekend and brought her daughter, who was 5 years old at the time. Not only was I wanting Alice to stay, I couldn’t get enough of Syenna…it was as if she was my daughter. She quickly became my mini me. She looks like me, acts like me…shes my best friend just like Alice is.
In April 2015 Alice and Syenna made the move from LA to Murrieta so that we can become a family. They were always at my house anyways! That November, I had asked Alice to marry me in our living room, she said YES!!! For whatever reason, wedding planning did not start right away and we found that we were not ready to get married…so we put it on hold. After a year and half of working on ourselves…we know now, more then ever that we want to spend the rest of lives together.
How They Asked
On Feb 8th 2017, Alice took me to an Alicia Keys concert for an early Valentines Day present. She knows how much I love Alicia Keys so we stood in line for 5 hours to make sure that we got a spot right in front of the stage as it was a general admission, stand up concert. I had Alice’s same ring that I had first proposed to her with and I thought, “how cool would it be to get on stage and ask her right here in front of all these people if she would marry me”. I was able to do just that. I got Alicia Keys attention as she was singing and she understood what I was trying to tell her. They pulled me on stage and after quickly telling Alicia Keys a little bit about us and our story…she asked Alice to come on stage to join us…she handed me the mic and said “do your thing” so I got down on one knee and asked Alice to marry me “for the last time” We have started the wedding planning and couldn’t be more excited to spend the rest of our lives together. May 12th 2018 is the BIG DAY!!!!
