Alex and Katelyn's Mexico Proposal
How we met: It was on a snowy Sunday night last January and my roommate Selene invited me to a game night her friend Kelsi was having. I was exhausted, felt sick, and didn’t feel like going but she kept insisting I go. I finally agreed and quickly got ready and went with her. We were a little late, and when we walk in Alex was sitting on the couch with his cousin Zac waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive so they can start the games. Right away Alex caught my eye! I was smitten with him from the moment I met him! The whole night I kept catching glances at him and tried to find any way to be his partner in the games.
After that night, we went our separate ways but he was still on my mind and I wanted to see him again somehow! I kept telling my friends how cute I thought he was and there was just something about this guy I really liked. The next week, I was at a restaurant for my friend’s birthday dinner and during our dinner his Uncle Richard came up to our table and started chatting with us. I found out he was Alex’s uncle! That gave me the perfect excuse to talk to him and tell him I met his uncle. We started out talking for a while and had an amazing first date in Park City during Sundance! After that first date, the rest is history! We have been inseparable and madly in love ever since!!!
How he asked: We went on vacation to Cancun, Mexico on August 15th, 2014 with my fiance and his family! We spent our first day there relaxing on the picturesque white sand beach with the clear andtourqiouse ocean in front of us. The next day we ventured out of the resort to take a trip to explore the ruins Coba and Tulum! We arrived at Coba early in the morning and went through the jungle on bikes to get to the bottom of the ruin! When we arrived there was no one there and we started the long trek to the top of the temple. I had no clue what was about to happen on the top of Coba because my fiance and his family kept it such a secret! When we get to the top, Alex and I take in the beautiful view of the jungle below us! I wanted to take a picture of us. After taking a picture together, Alex grabbed both of my hands and said he “wanted to tell me something.” That is when he got down on one knee and proposed! I was completely shocked and blown away! I had no idea he was going to propose that day but I loved that he totally surprised me! Our engagement was the most special and amazing moment of my life and something that I will always cherish forever!
