Vanessa and Marcos

How We Met

Marcos and I met my senior year of high school on a school trip to Washington DC called Close-Up. We met all because of a lottery ticket and the fate of a snow storm. His parents won a mini lottery and had the money to send him on the school trip, and because of a snow storm, our schools ended up being at Close-up the same week.

how they asked

Marcos and I had planned our whole day in Seattle the night before, so the next morning I decided that I wanted to change the plans and Marcos didn’t know what to do. For some reason, we “needed” to be back at the hotel by 2pm. I just assumed that he wanted to go to happy hour at our hotel since the bar in our lobby was very popular. When we got into the room, I noticed the roses on the bed, turned around, and there he was on one knee. I was in such shock I couldn’t even respond.
