Summer and Steven

How We Met

We met in our high school cooking class, he was a senior and I was a sophomore. I was always paired with him to make sure he didn’t mess anything up. The next semester he switched his classes so he could have a class with me! We have had most of our relationship long distance, me in college and him at a delta connection airline. We have been faced with many hardships and many celebrations throughout our relationship.

How They Asked

It was a great day exploring all around Paris during the day. It was the second day there so we went all around. For dinner, we went on a beautiful dinner cruise with wonderful food, wine, and dessert. After we wanted to go watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle. It only sparkles for 5 minutes every hour between 10 pm and 1 am.

We had another couple come with us, so we picked a place to sit in the lawn. (She is the one who took the video and pictures) We were sitting and talking about life and how happy we were and he asked if I wanted to stand upright when the tower started to sparkle, so I did and he got down on one knee and asked the question.

I couldn’t even stand still, I don’t even remember what I said, but I was just sobbing, I was so happy and caught off guard. It was a complete surprise at the moment but a long time coming.
