How We Met: Jeremy and I met back in 2009 during cheerleading camp at Clemson University. Originally from Pennsylvania, I attended Slippery Rock University for my freshman year where I made the co-ed cheerleading team.
Jeremy was on the University of Delaware’s co-ed cheerleading team ready to finish his senior year.
A friend on my team was already in a relationship with someone from Delaware and was eager to introduce the girls to the boys on their team.
Although we barely spoke, the last day of camp I decided to ask Jeremy to take a picture. After tagging him in our photo we began chatting often through social media.
After a visit to the small town of Slippery Rock, one thing led to another and we officially became a long distance couple!
The following year I transferred to the University of Delaware joined the cheerleading team and continued my education with the love of my life.
6 years later we continue to write our story together sharing our huge passion for Disney World, making laughter apart of every day, and enjoying time with our diva of a puggle, Carmen!
how they asked: Every other year Jeremy and I take a trip to Disney World with his family. Having plenty of discussions throughout the month’s prior to vacation in relation to our finances; I didn’t imagine a proposal would happen until I was done with graduate school in May.
Boy was I wrong!! Jeremy was very strategic and began planting seeds month in advance to throw me off for the perfect blind side.
For several months he would pretend to propose to me in random places, making me laugh and ending with me saying no fully knowing he was just making a joke.
During vacation nothing was different and the “pretend” proposals continued to happen. On the morning of our trip to the Magic Kingdom, we took a family photo followed by a photo of just Jeremy and I (very typical).
While posing for our picture, Jeremy whispered in my ear “So this will be the last time I have to say this.” To my surprise I turn and he is down on one knee!
I was completely in shock, flooded with emotions. The tears immediately started flowing and I couldn’t stop asking if it was real.
The outcome of this proposal was YES!!! I am incredibly grateful to have such an amazing man in my life and I cannot wait to marry my best friend!
