Remi and Gavin

How We Met

Gavin and I met the summer before our junior year in high school. People don’t believe me when I say we met on Twitter. Gavin took the risk and sent me a picture of a kid sliding down a slide and said “sliding into your dm’s.” From that point on was never stopped talking, even when I move thousands of miles away. We stayed strong during a total of two years of long distance. Now I can’t wait to marry my best friend.

How They Asked

Our story started in 2014 at Mountain View High School. Gavin found is way into my direct messages on twitter and there wasn’t one day that we didn’t talk to each other. My dad had just retired from the military and three months into my junior year I had to break the news to Gavin that I would be moving to Texas. Graduation came and Gavin moved into my home. Soon after Gavin became a Marine.

Proposal Ideas Dallas Arboretum

Once back from boot camp Gavin hid the ring from me for three months until he finally found the perfect proposal idea. I, him and my parents went to the Dallas Arboretum for family pictures. Before I knew it I was in Gavin’s arm crying and saying a million and one times! Now I will be marrying my Marine come 2020!
