How We Met
Noah and I had known one another since eighth grade when we had all of our classes together and our friend groups ran together. While we had been trying to set up our two friends like middle schoolers do I developed a crush on him that I never could seem to shake. We continued being friends and we were both in marching band all during high school. We were in the same friend group and eventually things fell into place after state finals junior year Noah asked me to be his girlfriend and the rest is history.
how they asked
We have been together almost four years now and with 2 years of distance under our belts and approaching the end of my college career we began talking about what was going to come next. While we began talking more seriously about what the future held for us, Noah’s sister began planning a wedding of her own. Noah and his family had always been close, especially him and his two sisters. One night before the wedding Noah and his sisters were having a sibling night when Sara had suggested an idea to Noah that he propose during her reception and shock everybody. Well that it did. The plan went into motion and Noah got permission from my parents and let them in on the plan. During the reception Noah and a friend of ours had been getting up periodically and “getting things”. The garter toss and dances were over and it was time for the bouquet toss. I went onto the dance floor and had joked that I would fight for the bouquet, it wasn’t much of a fight. After a few fake throws Sara turned around and handed me the bouquet. I had no idea what was going on and when I turned around to see what was happening, Noah was there and got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. After, still in shock, Noah walked me over to where my parents had been hiding and we were able to celebrate!
