How We Met
Justin and I met one fall at Baylor University playing sand volleyball… and then we forgot about each other until we had three classes together the following semester – finance, accounting, and statistics. After several study dates, we knew we had something special. On the night we started dating, our car was struck by lightning – and our relationship has been electric ever since! Soon enough, he was my best friend and we were pretty much inseparable. Our 3 years of dating have been filled with adventures, but we’re excited to start our new adventure as husband and wife.
how they asked
It was a gorgeous morning in March, and Justin and I were running a half-marathon around Baylor’s campus. We crossed the finish line together with triumphant smiles on our faces. After the race, we were going to meet our families for lunch in downtown Waco to celebrate the half-marathon finish, but Justin suggested we should take a walk to kill time. We walked alongside the the river until we came across a boat tied to a small dock. We got in the boat and started rowing toward the bridge. As we were about to cross under the bridge, he pulled out a small ring box and a letter I’d written him a long time ago, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I said the easiest “yes” I’d ever said in my life, and then I heard cheers from up above! All of our friends and family had been standing on the bridge watching our perfect engagement!
