HOW THEY MET: We went to school together. We didn’t actually like meet then, we just knew of each other. We started being friends after high-school working at a veterinary clinic together. Then we started dating. We didn’t realize but we were actually on the same T-ball team!

THE PROPOSAL: He said he wanted to take me out to dinner to celebrate my promotion at work. Which I was trying to say we don’t have to because it was a couple months prior, we were trying to save money for a house. But he insisted. He said get all pretty and let’s go to dinner. I didnt pick up the hints he was giving of getting my nails done, of course I was oblivious. Even my coworkers were trying to tell me he was going to propose, I didn’t believe them. But we got to dinner, it was lovely, it was a restaurant called Cliffside, which was literally on the side of the cliff. After dinner, the waiter was taking our dishes. He walked away and Joe “forgot” to give him his fork. He tried giving it to him before he walked away then dropped the fork. Then the flashing lights from a camera was going off (the fork was the cue for the photographer) and he got down on one knee. I didn't even give him a chance to say anything and just started saying yes. I didn't even see the ring or anything. It was the best night.

BEST PART: I honestly don’t even know what the best part of the day was. It was all amazing. It went by so fast, but the sunset was beautiful. A suprise during the reception that we didn’t know was coming, was “photo bomb”, we got photos with so many people and it was so fun! Another thing I like that we did, at the end of the night, once we got all cleaned up for bed. We made a video of ourselves talking about the day, reading the cards, and reading our guest book.

HARDEST PART: The hardest part was honestly saying goodbye to all of our guests, everyone really made the day the best day.
