Allison and Dylan
How We Met
My fiancé and I were high school sweethearts. We began dating on 5-5-2012. Disney is a special place for me since I’ve been going annually since I was a baby. We also visited Disney together in 2013 for our senior class trip. Dylan and I attended both junior and senior proms together and were considered to be inseparable. Upon graduation in 2013, Dylan joined the Air Force, while I went away to college. The drastic changes hindered our relationship and we ended up going our separate ways for 3.5 years. About a year ago, 4-14-2017 Dylan and I reconnected and began dating again. Shortly after, he received orders to deploy to the Middle East. We endured 6 months apart and survived the distance.
How He Asked
After Dylan came home from his deployment he and I planned a trip to Disney World. When we arrived we visited some parks and enjoyed being together having survived an entire deployment. On the 5th day of our trip, we had planned to go to the Magic Kingdom. Dylan requested we dress up for our “Be Our Guest” lunch reservations. To me, I love dressing up, so I didn’t think much of it. As we were walking through the park, I peeked over the gate by the rose garden and saw a family taking professional photos. Since I love pictures, I asked Dylan to ask the photographer if we could take photos there too.
Surprisingly, the photographer allowed us in and casually asked our names. I was excited thinking we were randomly selected for these private photos. As we are taking photos, the photographer then proceeded to ask Dylan if he had a pose idea. That’s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. This was truly my dream come true!
