How We Met

Gary and I first met as kids in Church. Our families have always been very close and are much like family. Never in a millions years did anyone see us being together coming. We both grew up and lived our separate lives focusing on our studies and future

careers. After completing college we returned to church and was re-introduced by my great grandmother. After our first coffee date, the rest became history. Ever since, we’ve been inseperable.

How They Asked

It was my birthday! Every year we surprise each other with gifts and events. But this time, I didn’t know it was going to be something like this. As we arrived to a rose garden, he asked if he could blind fold me and lead me in the direction of our destination in the park. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but I of course trusted him. He walked me to the fountain in the middle of the Rose Garden and there was both of our families. I instantly smiled and started crying asking what was going on. He then got on one knee and asked if I would marry him and of course, I said YES!!!
