How We Met
Brian and I have known each other for a long time, our moms are best friends. We have spent summers at the lake around one another, but at the time were dating other people. When we were both single Brian started hitting on me, so I invited him to be my wedding date. We have been together ever since. Brian was adopted from the Philippines when he was 12 years old, and his favorite saying when something good happened once he was in America was “today is my lucky day”, but he didn’t realize that the day he proposed to me was actually my lucky day.
How They Asked
The morning we got engaged we had planned a sunrise hike to the Delicate Arch at Arches National Park. We woke up super early (my family was with us on this trip), and started the hike. Brian had seemed a little off, but I didn’t pay a lot of attention because it was so early. We FINALLY made it to the arch, but I didn’t realize what all surprises were coming. Brian and I got under the arch for a picture, and then the love of my life got down on one knee.
To top things off his family had flown out too, and were at the top hiding behind rocks. They came running down to us, to top off an even better surprise ( I didn’t think he would propose since his family wouldn’t be here). His sister is an awesome photographer so while hiding she shot our engagement. September 14, 2019, will always be one of the best days of my life.
