How We Met
Justin and I met in middle school when we were 13 years old. We became the best of friends, but I always knew we liked each other. At 14 we started dating, and have been together ever since! Through all of the big milestones like high school graduation and pursuing our careers, we’ve managed to stick with each other. Our relationship has only gotten better with time, and after almost 11 years together, we’ll be tying the knot!
How They Asked
On our 10 year anniversary, Justin told me that he made a dinner reservation for us, but wouldn’t give me very many details. We got ready and arrived at the 555 Steakhouse in Long Beach, California that evening. The restaurant had set up a private table in their wine cellar room for the two of us. It was so romantic! Then the manager brought me a bouquet of roses that Justin had picked earlier in the day. As we’re enjoying some wine, the song “Dear Madeleine” that he had written and recorded started to play over a speaker in the room. He asked me to dance, and as the song was ending, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
Just at that moment, both of our families came into the room to witness the moment. It was amazing! He pulled it off perfectly and I was completely surprised. I CAN’T WAIT TO MARRY HIM!
