Nancy and Jose

Proposal Ideas Spokane

How We Met

From Nancy: A family member introduced him to the family and my mom encouraged me to meet him and it was all up to us after that!

Where to Propose in Spokane

From Jose: I met Nancy while helping her mom do some work around her house. She was sick the day I met her and I could tell she felt embarrassed of how she looked at the time and the only thing I could think is, wow if she looks this beautiful sick how does she look like when she isn’t sick! I would make a point of coming by when I knew she was around and she always smiled and waved at me and that was enough for me to know I needed her in my life. One day I talked to her at a family BBQ and she was the one that was like ok here is my number call me! I did and we spoke every single day since that day!

how they asked

From Nancy: After 2.5 yrs, he proposed on New Year’s Day after I said we could start thinking about that when the new year started and he didn’t lose any time! He proposed in Riverfront Park in the middle of a snow day. He was just walking very quickly and wasn’t saying much and then he stopped and dropped to one knee. I thought oh boy this is really happening! But I couldn’t have been happier!!!

From Jose: I wanted to marry her right away and she expressed to me it’s gonna be awhile! In the mean time we worked on building not only a relationship but a friendship. When the time was right we talked about me proposing and she said anytime next year… well I didn’t lose anytime I was going to do it on New Year’s Day before she changed her mind. I wanted it to be in a memorable place that would be around forever so I could tell my kids this is where our lives changed. It was a wonderful winter day and we went to church as usual and I saw what shoes she was wearing… not winter friendly shoes but I knew I would have to make due. I told her let’s go to breakfast on the way there we went a different way. The entire time she kept asking where are we going. Finally we parked outside Riverfront park and she said what are we doing? I can’t go out there in these shoes but I told her I would help. Off I go to open the door when I nearly fell myself and I held her hand and off we went. She kept slipping but I held onto her more. She laughed among the craziness and finally when I got to where I wanted everything came together. It was just the two of us among all the snow and I knew this was the moment I want to ask her to be my wife and start our happily ever after.
