Shelby and Kyle
How We Met
We met at a house party one night in Las Vegas during the summer of 2016. We were both 19 at the time. Kyle knew the guy I was with that night and wanted to give him his number so they could meet up later that week. The guys phone was dead so he asked to use mine to store it. A year later, Kyle called my phone looking for my friend and the rest is history.
How They Asked
We traveled from Las Vegas (our home) to Cabo San Lucas on a Saturday. We left to the airport at 4:30 a.m. and arrived in Mexico by 1:00 p.m. After settling in we grabbed a drink and wanted to visit another resort that was known for its breath-taking views and amazing restaurants so Kyle suggested we take a taxi there to watch the sunset.
After ordering some wine Kyle started acting a little different. He was quiet and looked a little anxious. We were both super tired, so I didn’t think anything of it until he said “I have to go to the bathroom.” When he came back less than 30 seconds later he had given his phone to our waitress. He immediately started stumbling his words, trying to tell me how much he loved me and how much I meant to him. At this moment I knew he was going to propose. I didn’t even realize he had the ring in his pocket and I already started saying “yes, yes” while crying.
He got down on one knee and I don’t even remember what happened after that. I just remember looking at my dream ring and I feel like it was a dream. I was so emotional and it truly was the best day of my life!
