Alexis and John

How We Met: We had been going to the same gym for a few years but never talked to each other. One day I was driving through the town he worked in and he just happened to pull me over and obviously let me go with a warning :). We spoke a few times following this at the gym but then lost touch. Two years later we reconnected and instantly knew this relationship was going to be something different.

How He Asked: We had plans to go to Princeton battlefield park for about a month then grab a late lunch. We parked at the location and started walking towards a huge monument they have in the middle of an open field. When we got to monument I was waking around reading the plaques and John said “What’s that? Did you get me something?” I turned around and there was a big box in the middle of the monument with Johns name on it. He kept saying did you get me something to try to throw me off and started opening the box and digging through the tissue paper to get to the ring box. Then he got down on one knee and popped the question. After I said of course I heard screaming and my sister and his sister popped out of the bushes where they were hiding taking pictures. It was the greatest moment of my life..
