Laura and Jack
How We Met
Jack and I met through his sister who was my boss at my part time job when we were in high school. I didn’t know it at the time, but Jack had the biggest crush on me but wouldn’t even say Hi because he was too scared. I started to become closer friends with his sister, and we had eventually decided to all take a vacation that summer to New Hampshire. It was decided that myself, Jack, and another a friend would share a room. From that point, Jack kept calling me “room” (short for roommate). Jack & I started dating in October of 2012.
How They Asked
Jack & I had been talking about marriage for a while, but in October of 2017, his dad unexpectedly passed away and it took us a while to process and come to terms with. Fast forward to a little over a year later, I had the day off from work and Jack told me he was going to leave work early that day. We had “dinner reservations” in Marina Bay to celebrate our 7 year anniversary from the week before. While I was off all day relaxing and getting ready, little did I know that my family, his family, and some of our friends were busy running around all day setting up an engagement party. We drove to Marina Bay and Jack suggested we go for a walk on the boardwalk near the beach. We were the only two there, and as he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him, my heart melted and it was the easiest question he’s ever asked me. We then drove back to our hometown where all our friends and family were waiting for us to celebrate!
