How We Met

We met on the second day of a week-long cruise in September 2019. He lived in Florence, Alabama while I lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We have made long-distance work for a year and a half, and will soon be in the same state, and spend forever together!

How They Asked

He set up a photo session so we could take nice pictures. It was my gift for Valentine’s day. We spent over 2 hours taking sweet pictures in romantic poses, all the while he had a plan. He said he wanted to take one more picture on the bridge, and I was supposed to look off into the distance and he would come up behind me and wrap his arms around me. Well, he never came up behind me. I turned around and he was down on one knee! I think I blacked out for a second because I don’t remember what I did next other than shake my head Yes!!!
