Sarah and Alec

how we met

We met through a mutual friend. It wasn’t set up or anything, which is funny because after we started dating, my friend said “I can’t believe I didn’t think to set y’all up!” My college roommate went to high school with Alec, and one night a bunch of her high school friends were getting dinner and drinks at a mexican restaurant. I had asked her what she was doing for dinner, and she invited me! Within 10 minutes, Alec and I hit it off and hung out and talked the whole night. He texted me the next day and asked me on our first date!

how they asked

Alec proposed on January 12, 2019 in San Diego California on my birthday! I love California, and had been wanting to visit San Diego, so we had booked the trip back in October for a fun birthday weekend. Little did I know that when we booked the trip, Alec started planning an engagement. We are big outdoor people, and I had planned several hikes for us to go on. San Diego is also known for their sunsets, so each night we had a spot to watch the sunsets. Saturday, my birthday, we had planned on watching the sunset on Sunset Cliffs. The part I didn’t know was that while we were watching the sunset, there was a hidden photographer waiting to capture Alec propose to me. As we were walking to our spot, Alec got down on one knee and proposed. I have never in my life felt such pure joy and excitement! Once we took pictures with the photographer, we went back to our hotel to get ready for my birthday dinner that Alec had planned. I had no idea that when I walked into that restaurant, both of our families were there to surprise me!! I have never been so shocked in my life! It was the best day ever and one we will never forget.

Special Thanks
