How We Met
Josh and I were connected on social media through mutual friends since we were long distance. He was the 34th fittest man in the world and I honestly didn’t think I had a shot! Well, little did I know he thought the same about me! After rewriting his first message to me for 30 minutes to make sure he said something I’d respond too, he finally DM’d me on social media. He had my number within hours of chatting, and asked for a FaceTime date that lasted over 5 hours! Just three days later, he told me on Christmas Eve that he booked a flight to come meet me the day before New Years (Best Christmas present EVER!) We had our first date on December 30th, 2019 and we both knew it was our last first date ever! I never understood the phrase “When you know you know!” before Josh, and yet the moment I met him, that phrase could not have been more real! He is beyond any dream I ever dreamed and every prayer I had ever prayed! I can’t wait to spend my life with him! (Picture below is our first date!)
How They Asked
Josh took me to design my dream a ring a couple of months ago. Due to COVID-19, the ring was stuck being designed in New York without a timeline of when it would be done. Because we knew we wanted to get married in January, Josh and my family told me to go ahead and book a tour of the wedding venue I had wanted to get married at so we could get started on planning the wedding because the ring was stuck. Months ago, I had told Josh that it would be my dream to get engaged at Knotting Hill Place (our wedding venue!) I didn’t think anything of this tour being the time he popped the question because he had told me my ring was stuck! I got all ready because I was so excited about this venue tour!
Well little did I know, the wedding venue, their staff, my family and friends were all in on this tour being a surprise proposal. The jeweler HAD given Josh a timeline on the ring and Josh kept it a secret! I walked into the venue and noticed music played and photographers and videographers… I immediately started crying, turned to Josh, and saw tears streaming from his face.
We walked to my dream proposal spot at the venue and he read me the most amazing letter of his love for me, and got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. Little did I know, he had all my friends and family hidden, and once I said yes everyone came running out to celebrate! BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! I can’t wait to be Ms. Littauer!
