Naivys and Fernando

How We Met

So, we sometime in 2015. We met through mutual friends, and I knew his cousin as well. Turns out that my mentor in school went to his church and they had known each other for years. We connected that way, and he asked me to go for a run one day when I was back in our home town. We went for a run and I didn’t think much of it. I was going to school and living almost two hours away. One day he went up and met me for lunch at my school. We had tacos and talked for a while, but I didn’t think much of it and kept on with life. He kept being present in my life and kept in touch from time to time. In February of 2017, we reconnected. I was supposed to go out of town for spring break, but my plans fell through. Unbeknownst to this, he asked me if I wanted to go to a Saturday morning boot camp. I don’t know why, but I said yes, sure, I could use a workout. That is the day everything changed. As I saw him surrounded by people, interacting, how he was with others, I guess I just felt this attraction to him. I just knew that day, that wherever he was, I wanted to be near him. The following week, I was back in town and we went on a 48-hour long date. We ended up in a rooftop in a made-up movie theater and a childhood movie playing, which I mentioned I had never watched.

How They Asked

We went on a weekend trip to celebrate a friend’s birthday. On the way back home, he told me he wanted to stop by a beach to get some shots. I was wondering around the beach taking a couple of shots and taking in the sun. After a while, we picked up and got ready to leave. He asked me to hold his drone controller, and a video started playing. It was a video of us on our first date. The song gave it away because it said something about my true companion for the rest of my life. At that point I was crying. He came over with a little wooden box, put his forehead to mine and told me all the reasons why he wanted to marry me. After that, he got down in one knee and asked me to marry him. While all of this was happening, he had the drone on autopilot, and it was all captured on video.
