How We Met

Samuel: “We met through mutual friends at a house party seven years ago. We became friends that night. A few years later, I invited some friends over for a New Years’ pool party and Jessica came. Something was different between us and I asked her if she would like to go to the movies the next day and she said yes.”

How They Asked

Jessica: “My family made me think that we were going for brunch at a café in Coogee. They lead me through a ‘shortcut’ through Grant Reserve and kept distracting me with videos on their phones so I would not look up and see Samuel standing there under the pergola. Once we had reached Samuel, my sister quickly snatched my phone off me and I looked up in shock to see him. Samuel looked so happy to see me. I immediately got emotional even though we have been talking about this day for so long. The setup behind him was so beautiful. He really had done a lot to make sure the moment was romantic. Samuel held my hands and said he chose that day to propose as it was seven years ago the day that we met and that since that day, he knew I was the one he wanted to be with. He then asked me if I was ready to which I replied, “Yes, of course.” He asked me to marry him and the rest is history.”
