Mariel and Andrew

How We Met

Andrew and I met at a mutual friend’s party. We became Facebook friends but that was it.

Fast forward about a year, Andrew sent me a Facebook message and asked me to go out on Valentine’s Day. I was apprehensive since that day is associated with love and romance. I wanted to keep things casual and told him I was craving wings and would love to go to Hooters. We had the best time and go back every Valentine’s Day for our anniversary!

How They Asked

I am a big runner and Andrew asked me to marry him as I crossed the finish line after running 26.2 miles at the A1A marathon in Fort Lauderdale. My family and friends were waiting at the finish line with signs and he said: “will you be mine forever?” The race was on Valentine’s Day which is also our dating anniversary.
