How We Met
Zach and I met in our high school forensic class. We had gone to the same elementary, middle, and high school but we had never met each other until his senior year and my junior year of high school. We were doing a very tedious assignment where we had to measure the whole classroom.
After a few days of working on this, I gave up so I decided to go ask the hardworking kid in the back of the classroom. There, Zach kindly helped me and then I realized how cute he was and how I’ve never seen this guy before. Later I found out he played on the football team and how we had mutual friends. After we first met we then began flirting and added each other on social media and soon started dating. We have now been together for 5 years.
How They Asked
Zach told me we were going to brunch at Halls Chophouse in Greenville so we both dressed up nicely and went to brunch. Before brunch he had us walk around Falls Park while we waited for our reservation time. As we got to the end of the bridge I saw this cute set up of sunflowers (my favorite flower) and I instantly knew what was happening.
He had me close my eyes and he began to tell me how much he loved me and about how excited he was for our future together. He then got down on one knee and told me to open my eyes. Naturally, I was crying uncontrollably and while he asked me to marry him, the song ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran began to play in the background. After he put the ring on my finger to my surprise was my mom, my best friend Kara, her boyfriend, and their friend Trey who took pictures of the whole thing.
