How We Met: Sean and I met when we were 15 in high school. I remember seeing him on the baseball field and telling my best friend “he’s cute, I’m going to date him”.
Sean and I went to high school prom together our senior year, and he really dropped the ball prom weekend. The next 10 years of our relationship, I reminded him of this frequently. He would always jokingly tell me that I wouldn’t want to miss our next prom.
Sean planned a surprise vacation to Napa Valley and asked me to pack my bags the night before. When we arrived in Napa, a driver came to pick us up for what I thought was just a “private wine tour” at Beringer Winery. At the end of our wine tour, we went upstairs where Sean (with the help of The Yes Girls) had transformed the room to look just like our High School prom. Sean had recreated every detail, to bringing his letterman jacket, writing a sweet note in our yearbook, down to the exact bouquet I carried. He asked me to put his boutonniere on, then got on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I couldn’t say yes fast enough.
