How We Met

I found the love of my life on TikTok! I happened to come across Shannel’s videos and I was instantly drawn to her. I would watch them on repeat. I found myself thinking about a woman I had never met, let alone even spoken to (obsessed much?!).

Days went by and I couldn’t shake the feeling that I needed to know more about this woman who was consuming my thoughts so I found her on Instagram and added her. A couple of days later I received an inbox message from her! That was the moment we forever began.

We would message all day, every day and it was so effortless even though she was technically a stranger I felt like I had known her my whole life. she was so familiar to me. At that time I was at the tail end of an abusive marriage and Shannel became my rock and encouragement. she helped me rebuild myself, someone, that I had lost a very long time ago. we faced so many obstacles, so many things that should have torn us apart, but they didn’t, they only made us stronger. That is how I knew this was true love.

How They Asked

Shannel had planned a very elaborate proposal! It was our 1 year anniversary and she told me she had a lovely night planned. She brought me a dress and booked me in to get my hair and makeup done. I had no idea where we were going or what we were doing!

We went for drinks at Observatory Bar (somewhere I had wanted to go for a while) after a few cocktails Shannel disappeared to the bathroom and she was gone for a while. I sent her a text to make sure she was ok. She then said that this is the only time I am allowed to trust a stranger, I found this odd…

A lady then approached my table and asked me to follow her. Remembering Shannel’s text, I followed. I was then blindfolded and led on a short walk. Once we reached the destination the blindfold was removed and I was in awe of what I saw in front of me. I was in a beautiful gazebo that was decorated with beautiful red roses. Shannel had made a video that had all of our family and friends holding signs for me to read. Shannel then came on screen with her own signs, the last one said “turn around”.. when I did, there she was holding the ring!! It was and she is absolutely perfect!!!
