How We Met

Jordan and I met on Tinder – of all places, back in 2014! It was love at first swipe!

How They Asked

OMG, the entire proposal was a COMPLETE SURPRISE!! We had been discussing getting engaged for the past few years but I had no idea it was happening. It was a surprise proposal at the Cherry Blossoms Festival super early in the morning at 6 am. He told me it was a photo shoot for our 7-year dating anniversary and I teased him about how it sounded awfully like an engagement. He had me CONVINCED it was just a regular photoshoot.

I asked him if I should get my nails done, and “no”, I wondered if he was proposing, and he said “honey, not yet, it’s still a pandemic”, I even told him on the way out the door (on our way to DC) “don’t forget the ring”, he laughed and said, “honey, I don’t want you to be disappointed – it’s just a photo shoot!”. I had gotten to the point where I realized it was just a photo shoot – nothing more. That morning, I never even thought twice about anything else, and low and behold, our brilliant photographer had us stand back to back, she told us to take a few steps forward and then turn around and give each other a bear hug, and when I turned around…… he was down on one knee! I blacked out after that…. it’s all on camera though! :)
