Alex and D.J

How We Met

D.J and I met in the summer of 2009. I recently graduated high school that summer and we met through mutual friends. There was something about him right from the start that I liked and I knew he was different. I remember the first time he told me he loved me and I knew from that moment that I’d marry him someday. 7 years later and we’re still together I can honestly say we’ve been through everything together and I wouldn’t change it for the world. We grew together from teenagers to adults and I can honestly say I’ve never loved someone so much.

Alex's Proposal in Disney world

How He Asked

Me and DJ have been together for 7 years he is my best friend, he’s the one person who knows me better than anyone. I knew I’d marry him someday but my proposal was completely a surprise. My family and I go to Disney every summer we are the definition of Disney people. It has always been my dream to someday get engaged in-front of the castle. I never thought that it would happen someday. This summer when we arrived at the magic kingdom on our first day there D.J ran into the park ahead of all of us. I had no idea what was going on so I said to my grandma he’s in a rush to get to the ride that we had fast passes to. So we continue to walk into the park. Now we’re on main st and we finally catch up with D.J we continue walking and the parade starts down main st at this point D.J looks so nervous and says I can’t believe the parade has to start right now. I said so what we still have an hour to get to our fast pass, not even thinking that he was worried about something else.

I never thought anything of it until now. So the parade ends and we continue to walk toward to castle for our annual family picture.D.J turns to me and says let’s take our picture alone first so I say ok and walk up to take a picture with him so I pose for one and begin to walk toward my family for our group picture. I turn around and before I knew it he was on one knee and I was in tears. This is the moment I dreamed about since I was a little girl. I was in front of the castle like a real Princess getting proposed to by my own real life Prince Charming. It was just as magical as I always imagined it would be and I honestly wish I could relive that moment over and over again. After he proposed he took me to dinner at my favorite restaurant “be our guest” and Disney gave us a storybook with our engagement picture in it. I can truly say Disney is where dreams come true,I know my dream came true that day.
