How We Met
John and I met June 2007 at a friends sweet sixteen. He was the dancer working with the DJ company and I was a guest at the party. As soon as we saw each other something instantly clicked. Being a shy 16 year old girl I just glanced over from time to time hoping he would come say hello, after a few hours of eyes locking he came over and asked me to have the last dance of the night. After that night we became the greatest friends. On July 4, 2007 after our usual ritual of hanging out on my stoop on those beautiful summer nights he kissed me for the first time while watching Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. It was perfect. Our love story continued for the next 8 years which I can sit here and write about for hours. We grew up together, we watched and help each other grow while our love only becoming stronger. John and I have made the most beautiful memories, have picked each other up through the tough times and encouraged each other through every obstacle. He is my soulmate, my best friend, I can’t picture life without him.
how they asked
On December 20, 2015 John had picked me up from a Christmas brunch to meet up with his family in Peddlers Village for some shopping and dinner. A few weeks before John had mentioned it to me nonchalantly and I was clueless as to what was really being planned. After a few hours of shopping, admiring the lights and walking around we had come across a beautiful tunnel that was lit up gorgeously. His sister turned to us how she normally would and said do you guys want a pic? After our picture was taken I began to walk away when John grabbed my hand, turned to me and said “You know I love you right?”, still being clueless I thought he was just telling me he loved me, he grabbed my face and continued to explain to me how much I mean to him. It was then I realized what was happening, I was in complete shock and so surprised!! I began to cry, he then got down on one knee and said, “Will you marry me?” Unable to even speak I screamed yes!!!! Just when I thought the moment couldn’t get any better or more perfect my family came running through the other side of the tunnel!! We had his family on one side, my family on the other and the song “A Moment Like This” playing in the background. It was truly a fairytale and the most magical night of my life. John I cannot wait to be your wife and to see what the future holds for us, you have made all my dreams come true and the happiest girl in the world!!!!! I love you so much!!
