Kelli and Haze

How We Met

We actually got setup on a blind date through mutual friends. He kept asking me on dates and I kept saying yes!

How They Asked

When Haze and I began getting serious about our relationship, we discussed our personal criteria for the proposal. I wanted to have zero influence on the ring he chose to give me when he asked me to spend my life with him. I trusted him to choose a ring he felt best represented me and our love (I know, a lot of people gave me the same shocked look you probably are too!) He said he wanted the proposal to be 100% unexpected for me, a total surprise. Both of those things happened! The ring is vintage and custom made from his Great-Great-Great Aunt that his grandmother passed on to Haze.

He told me they (his aunt and uncle) had the happiest marriage he’d ever witnessed and that’s what he wanted for our marriage. He proposed to be at a crawfish boil he hosted as a fake birthday party for our friend. Nobody, except our friend Amanda, knew; he had assigned her to take the pictures! He pulled me aside for some one-on-one pictures, yelled out to get the attention of the crowd, and dropped to his knee. “Will you?” We’re getting married in June 2020 after he comes home from deployment through the United States Marine Corps!
