how they asked
August 31, 2018 – Ryan proposed! Earlier in the week, Ryan asked me if I wanted to go to Cajun’s Wharf on a date Friday. Cajun’s is one of our favorite places to go, so this date didn’t seem any different to me. What I didn’t know was that Ryan had contacted my boss to ask if I could get off work early, so that I could be ready for a sunset proposal.
When Ryan got to my house, he asked if I wanted to drive by his old house on the way to eat. Even though that was a place we shared countless memories, I still didn’t know what was going on, because we’ve driven past the house a few times since Ryan moved out when we’ve been reminiscing.
When we got to the house, our friend Austin was there “waiting for the landlord” to show him the property since the house is currently for rent. I have to say, at this point, Ryan and Austin’s acting skills were top notch, because I had no clue that Ryan was about to propose (so much so that I kept walking away from where I needed to be, unknowingly, for the photographer to get a good shot of the proposal).
After Ryan (finally) got me into the shade, we talked about some special moments that happened while he was living at 905 Crestliner, and then Ryan asked if I wanted to make one more – which is when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
I must’ve asked Ryan if he was serious 10 times, but it was a resounding yes, and we can’t wait to start our forever together!
Let’s Get Smitty With It!
