How We Met
Nestor and I are high school sweethearts. We met in 2010 when I was only 14 and attending a school social. Nestor went to the all-boys school that was hosting and I went to the all-girls. It was nearing the end of the night and I was still dancing with my friends when a boy came and tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to dance with them. We danced for a little and shared a kiss, when the night was at its close, he asked me for my phone number. I gave it to him and went off to find my friends, he returned moments later and said he accidentally forgot to hit save. I gave it to him again and went home. The next day I woke up to a Facebook friend request from Nestor Sequera and I was jumping out of my skin. We stayed in touch for a while but it faded away as things do when you’re only 14. Two years later we rekindled and the rest is history. Now it’s 8 years later and he is the best thing to have ever happened to me, he stuck by my side through some traumatic times and has always supported whatever I want to do.
How They Asked
Our 8-year anniversary was coming up and Nestor told me that he had planned a surprise to celebrate. We drove up into the hills to a spot that was lovely, Nestor knows I LOVE going on a picnic so he told me that’s what he had planned, but when he picked me up wearing a suit, I was a bit suspicious.
We arrived at our location and it was stunning, Nestor lead me to a restaurant where he said we had to meet someone. Once inside he told me he forgets his wallet. I stayed inside chatting to the owner until he said “maybe we should go see where your partner has run off to”. Once I was led outside into the gardens, I instantly became nervous, I turned a corner and saw a white aisle with white roses and candles all the way leading up to a beautiful rotunda.
One of our favorite songs, A Whole New World was playing. I made my way up the aisle and once I reached Nestor I instantly began to ugly cry. Before I knew it, he was on one knee asking me to be his wife. After 8 years in love and 10 years of friendship, I can’t believe I’m going to be Nestor’s wife.
