How We Met
Wil & I met at a New Year’s Eve party back in 2019. I was moving away to Hawaii, so I didn’t even remember meeting him. LOL.
He did not forget me though, he messaged me constantly through Instagram, but I didn’t pay much attention because again – I was in Hawaii!
I came back home & we ended up working together with 2 of our best friends, who are married. The four of us became best friends, worked together, traveled the world together, etc. in 2020.
Our trip to St. John, USVIs at the end of July 2020… everything changed. I started having feelings for him in a way I had never experienced with him before..
August 5th, 2020: I confessed my feelings to him. He confessed that he had apparently had ever since he met me, and we started dating! 🤍
How They Asked
It was a surprise proposal! My best friend Christiana (the same best friend mentioned in my story of how we met) told me that she was taking me on a weekend getaway as a late birthday present! She said that her husband, my fiancé’s best friend, would entertain Wil while we were gone for the weekend!
I was SO excited. We drove down to Hilton Head, hopped on a ferry boat to Daufuskie Island, hopped on a golf cart & drove to the Equestrian Barn on the Island! We were going horseback riding together, our FAVORITE hobby!
Well, we get on the horses and head out on the trail.. next thing you know I see 2 horses ahead & a guy on one of them. He looked right at me & started talking to me. It was Wil, but I didn’t notice right away! As I got closer, I recognized his voice & saw his face… my jaw dropped. Everything in time felt like it froze. I was in AWE. I knew right when I saw my photographer friend that he was proposing. It didn’t feel real. We hopped off our horses, he got on one knee & he proposed!
I am still in shock & just OVER THE MOON. I am so excited & filled with gratitude!🤍
