Sammy and Jace
How We Met
Clovis being a small town we both knew of each other from high school. It wasn’t until many years later, after we both had graduated from Fresno State that our paths crossed once again. As it turns out it was perfect timing to begin our journey together. We had our first date on May 21st, 2012. Jace was the perfect gentleman so obviously I couldn’t say no to a second date. By the second date I knew Jace was something special. Since then we have had too many dates to count, but I am so excited for our first date as a married couple on September 30, 2017!
how they asked
On August 5th, 2016 Jace and I traveled to the Central coast to Morro Bay, CA. He told me we were celebrating his dad’s (Robins’) birthday for the weekend. The next day, August 6th, Jace said we were going to dinner to celebrate his dad’s birthday in Cambria, but before dinner we are stopping by a family friends house for some drinks. After we arrived at the house, Jace took me out on to the balcony that overlooked the beach. It was absolutely beautiful; there were candles everywhere, but even then I still had no idea what was about to happen. It wasn’t until Jace pulled me closer, grabbed my hands and said “well the reason I brought you here today……..” that was when I knew something special was about to happen. Jace started saying all these sweet things and eventually got on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!! Meanwhile, his parents were inside capturing the unbelievable moment on video. After he proposed his parents said we will meet you guys at the restaurant for dinner. All I could think about was calling my sister and family to tell them the exciting news. I didn’t have any cell service at the house in Cambria so on the way to the restaurant I waited to get service. Just as we pulled in the parking lot I get service! All I wanted to do was call my sister, he told me to settle down and wait until after we got seated, because we weren’t able to get a table until we were all there. I anxiously walked in the restaurant and SURPRISE!!! My family was inside. So many surprises that night, that I couldn’t help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Jace made our proposal so special and I will never forget it.
