Jennifer and John
How We Met
Life has a weird way of working itself out. I always knew God had something in store for me, but never did I think it would be this! John and I met 4 years ago where I initially wasn’t very fond of him at all. As time went on, we became friends but were in completely different places of life. Around a year later some difficult circumstances reconnected us and over the next couple of months, we developed a real connection. We were long distance so from then it was FaceTime every night and texting all day every day! The rest is history. He is the most kind, loving, genuine, smart and real person I have ever known. I’m so thankful that out of a difficult situation I met the love of my life. He truly makes me a better person and I’m so excited to see what life has in store for us!
How They Asked
About 8 months before he proposed, John told me he had a 5-year school reunion that we had to attend in August. This didn’t surprise me as he went to boarding school and he had shown me how they throw events like that. So, 8 months later it was finally the day, I had gotten ready and he picked me up and we drove to the proposal location. As I walked into the room a white drape was pulled open, which revealed to me the beautiful display that had been set up. He took me in front of the sign where he expressed his love for me and told me he couldn’t wait for our forever. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Easiest YES of my life!!
