How We Met

How I met my fiancé isn’t super exciting to anyone else but it’s a night that changed our lives forever. it was late September on my brother’s birthday I had just finished celebrating with him and I was going out to our high school football game. At the game, I walked over to our school cheerleaders because my best friend was a cheerleader for them.

As I was talking to her she introduced me to this extremely handsome cheerleader which I thought was super cool because in our town there were only two male cheerleaders. She told me his name was anthony and we hit it off right away after the football game we ended up all going back to her house and talked all night long. we have been inseparable ever since. It’s now a decade later we have three beautiful children together we are finally engaged and I am so happy I get to spend the rest of my life with this incredible man.

How They Asked

We have known for a long time now that we were eventually going to get married to each other. We have been together now for 10 years! First step to that obviously would be getting engaged. so for months now I’ve been sending my boyfrienddifferent types of rings but never anything more has come of it. when we planned a vacation to be alone without our kids I decided I wanted to surprise him with an engagement ring of his own. When we got to the zoo the elephants are one of the first animals we saw. they happen to be my favorite animal at the zoo too! One of them was perfectly positioned at the gate so I placed my phone on a bench across the way and told him I wanted to take a picture of us but it would be a video so I could screenshot from the video. I then pretended to take the photo and then he told me to go check to see if it was recording. as I went to do that he got down on one knee and surprised me by asking me to marry him while it completely threw me off guard because I was planning to do the same exact thing right there. It was just perfect timing and a complete coincidence that turned out to be the best video ever.
