How We Met
We met through mutual friends almost 10 years ago. we grew close over the years, became best friends and even lived together before I moved to LA for a couple of years. Her business is based out of LA so she would come, stay with me almost monthly and our relationship grew more romantic.
How They Asked
We had been planning my 30th bday trip to Thailand for a year with 10 of our closest friends. She had planned to do it on the beach at sunset but our trip was canceled because of COVID-19 and had been working for weeks to design a unique ring. She rallied a whole community together, from my bosses at work to my parents and friends, to bring Thailand to our backyard and create a photo-shoot for us.
She meant to do it the day of my birthday when we took the photos, but we were so caught up in the moment with each other and our few family and friends the day was over before we knew it, and I may have been a little drunk haha.
When we woke up the next morning she called all our pets, 2 dogs and a cat, and asked me to spend forever with her. My response was 100x yes. Little did I know my dad made the most beautiful custom ring box that was so incredible and stunning, I can’t wait to pass it to our children.
