How We Met
I met Mitchell on my first day of full-time work in the building industry. We are both shy by nature so it took just over a year for our love to really blossom. After about 6 months of knowing Mitch and working with him, I found myself drawn to him, his fun and happy nature was a big reason I enjoyed work so much! The flirting started and it took a very loose team Christmas party to give Mitch the confidence to plant a kiss on me! We had always been such great friends but little did we know that we would become inseparable after that kiss.
How They Asked
Mitch orchestrated a big decoy with his sister to take me out and distract me while he was busy setting up to what I didn’t know was going to be one of the most precious moments of my life. I walked down the stairs to come home and could hear my favorite song playing by Rufus Du Sol called Next to me ( very fitting for the moment may I add) I saw glimpses of red petals and knew exactly what this romantic was up to!
The moment couldn’t have been more perfect – we were together in our own space with the beautiful backdrop of the water, it was a moment of raw emotion and complete comfort while Mitch bared all his emotions and got down on one knee. I can’t forget to mention that our little fur baby Rufus was wearing a sweet little bandana saying ‘will you marry my dad’. Moments after he popped the question we were able to celebrate with Mitch’s family who is just so precious to us – the afternoon was filled with so much love and joy.
