How We Met
Clarence and I met in high school, sophomore year. We met at a mutual friends house. We casually dated throughout high school, and then went our separate ways in college. We both were in serious relationships at the time and didn’t keep in contact. When both of us were single, we had connected on Facebook and started spending time together again. We have been together ever since!
how they asked
Clarence proposed to me at my dance recital and I don’t think it could have been any more perfect. I have been a dancer since the age of 3, and once I graduated high school, I became a dance instructor at the same dance studio I danced and grew up at. Every year in June, we have a huge dance recital at the Rialto Theater in Downtown Joliet. Clarence has been coming to my dance recitals every year, and he knows how special that day has been for me.
June 11th was the day he proposed, and it was also my dance studio’s 25th Anniversary, so it was an even extra special day! After our big show, Clarence proposed to me on the beautiful Rialto staircase for all to see. All of the faculty, students, and families had all witnessed and cheered us on. And luckily I got some great pictures and videos without having to hire a photographer. It couldn’t have been any more perfect. Once the excitement had passed, my dance family had champagne waiting for us on stage for a special toast, and then we went out for a special planned dinner for us to all celebrate!
