How We Met

We met through a mutual friend, at her baby shower. After not speaking but a “hello” our friends set up a group date for us to meet, and hang out. The night ended with him saying “So when will I see you again?”

how they asked

After a year and a half of dating, we knew that we wanted to spend our lives together. Brivan told me that his older sister would be in town for his birthday weekend and that she wanted to go to city park and watch her friend play in a free concert…so the day came and we got dressed and ready. When we got to the park we called his sisters to see where they were standing. We wondered around the park and we ran into this picnic & balloons that read “Marry Me?” As clueless as I was I said “how cute someone is getting engaged” needless to say, it was our proposal! He then said “I did everything on your checklist, your nails are done, someone is recording it, and I asked your dad… But there’s one thing left, Laura Gissell Varela will you marry me?”
