Victoria and Bert

How We Met

We met in college when I was a freshman and he was a junior. We had a biology class together. I had a massive crush on him but we remained friends. We rekindled things 4 years later and had our first date. 6 years later we’re engaged!

How They Asked

i was having drinks with girlfriends at a hotel bar. Then one of them said, “I have a gift for you.” She handed me a white box and inside was a note that said “I’m so glad you exist” and a key to a room at the Bobby Hotel in Nashville. When I entered the room, my fiancée was standing on the balcony in front of big MARRY ME lights.

His friend started playing the guitar and he grabbed my hands and started singing “glad you exist” by Dan + Shay. After 30 seconds, he got down on one knee and asked for me to marry him. We celebrated the night in the suite with friends, champagne, and cake!
