Alessia and James

How We Met

Two years ago I thought there was no human on this earth that would ever understand me the way Jimmy does. We met almost two years ago and were inseparable ever since. We officially have been together for one year in June, two months later Jimmy proposed. I just knew I was going to marry this man since the day our eyes met. When you know, you know! Never let anyone tell you otherwise. I am the happiest I have ever been. He is my strength, my joy, and my biggest supporter.

How He Asked

My favorite thing in the world is the sunflower. Even during the winter, Jimmy finds a way to bring me a sunflower to make my day. I mentioned going to the sunflower maze on our weekend off from work for fun. When we got there Jimmy was taking unusually long in the restroom and taking phone calls from “work”. He was trying to plan where to meet our photographer, Aaron. Aaron was hiding in the bushes and had scoped out the place an hour before we had gotten there.

As soon as Jimmy found the right spot inside the maze he got down on one knee and said: “Will you marry me?” I was ecstatic and so surprised. I still look down at my hand and pinch myself every now and again. I can’t wait to marry my best friend. I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal.
