How We Met
I met Dalton through mutual friends in Pismo Beach. We talked for about 3 months and hung out here and there until Dalton and I were once again at the beach. We were hanging with friends when he asked to go on a walk down the beach which is when he asked me to be his girlfriend. That was April 13, 2016, and 6 months later he was packing up for basic training for the army. During that time we wrote back and forth for months until we were reunited in person on our one-year anniversary on 4/13/2017.
How They Asked
Dalton went ring shopping with my best friend and then enlisted my sister and her boyfriend to help with the full proposal planning. Dalton with the help of my family created signs with quotes from our love letters and lined the walkway with photos of us and rose petals. My sister tricked me into getting professional hair and makeup done using a fake photoshoot as a ruse (She is a photographer). I hit the beach and said to my friend, “Oh look someones proposing!”… As we got closer I said, “HEY! That looks like Dalton!” I literally had no idea! It was a complete surprise! He also had gathered all of our family and friends to be there and cheer us on the moment it happened! Just made it completely special!
