Adrianna and Christopher

How We Met

Chris and I went to high school together and were just friends for the four years. After graduation, life went on and we lost touch. Still friends on Instagram, I would constantly see all of his pictures and posts which would bring back those high school memories. On a Tuesday afternoon, I was waiting for my friend to pick me up for class and I got about five notifications in a row from Instagram telling me “christopherj_34” had liked five of my pictures. I suddenly jumped up and smiled, I had this weird feeling inside my body, my high school crush was suddenly liking my Instagram pictures. So, I went on his page and started liking his pictures. Next thing you know, he is back on my page liking more of my pictures. This went on until there was no more pictures for each of us to like. I was giddy and could not stop smiling for the rest of the day.

Although it did not turn into anything because we still have not contacted each other expect for the liking spree on Instagram, I could not stop thinking about him. Then, a couple days later on November 8th, I was going out with a group of friends for one of their birthdays. It was just a cold normal November night, but little did I know it was the night that was going to change my life forever. I remember talking to one of my friends about the liking spree on Instagram that occurred between Chris and I. She looked at me and smiled and said he’s coming here tonight with my boyfriend. Next thing you know, he walks in and I see him standing at the bar, so I went over and said hello. Well one look into each other’s eyes and that is all it took.

I was looking into the eyes of the one my heart fell so deeply in love with. I like to call it love at second sight! God made our paths cross again for a reason. We were meant for each other, we were meant to love each other unconditionally, we were meant to be soul mates. Ever since that first night, he has showed me what true happiness is and what it is like to be loved and appreciated. He hasn’t stopped putting the biggest smiles on my face, making sure I was the happiest girl, and loving me unconditionally. He’s taught me what true love is and what its like to love and be loved in return. He has become my everything, my soul mate, my number one fan, my best friend, my partner in crime, my shoulder to lean on, my true love.

How He Asked

Growing up the beach was my happy place. Walking onto the sand seeing the water always made me so happy. After a nice romantic dinner, I walked onto the beach with the love of my life by my side, but I had no idea what was about to happen.

With both of our families standing close by, a personalized blanket with flowers and champagne laid out in the sand, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, to be his forever. All while his four adorable nephews held a sign that said: “Adrianna, will you marry our uncle?” It was absolutely perfect.

And of course, I SAID YES!! I couldn’t be happier, it was truly the most magical night of my life and it couldn’t have been more perfect! We are now happily engaged and extremely excited to take this journey together.

Special Thanks

Both of our amazing families |
