How We Met
Jake and I met years ago, around 2007. We were both kids who somehow hit it off. Jake lived in New Jersey and I lived in Florida but we decided to give long distance dating a try even if we were only 14 years old. Somehow, it worked for us and we have not looked back since.
how they asked
On June 4th, one day after Jake’s 22nd birthday, we planned a trip to Disney world. Somehow, Jake managed to convince all of my family to go even though they claim they have been there one too many times. The normal pre Disney excitement set in but little did I know I was going to be proposed to. As we were making our way down the always packed Main Street, my mom pulled me aside into a gift shop to “see some shirts”. Oblivious to the chit chatter going on between my sister and Jake, I went in. We looked at the first shirt she could find for a couple of minutes and returned back to mainstreet. As were making our way closer to Cinderella’s Castle, Jake pulled me aside and said “can you please stand right here” and began his speech. At that point I was filled with butterflies and finally realized what was happening. Jake got down on one knee and a crowd of spectators surrounded us, cheering, awwing, and taking pictures/videos. I said yes and the crowd raved with excitement. Jake thanked me for not saying “no” because he would’ve been embarrassed in front of the crowd we attracted, lol. I couldn’t (and still can’t) believe I am going to marry the man I have loved since I was 14 years old. After many tears and pictures later, reality set in that I am engaged! We had the most magical day in the most magical place!
