Allison and Jeremy
How We Met
We had met through a mutual high school friend at out local karaoke bar I frequented. I was fresh out of a 2 year relationship and I was not looking to start a new one. But when Jeremy showed up, I couldn’t help but stare. He was a gentleman and I thought he was gorgeous but wanted nothing to do with him… so I wasn’t the nicest that night! He gave me a handshake hello, offered to buy me a drink which I eventually agreed to. On top of that, he has an amazing singing voice. Being a singer myself, I always wanted someone I could sing with so resisting him was that much harder. There was some chit chat and he left about an hour later, another handshake goodbye and that was that.
A couple days later, I got a text from the friend I had gone to karaoke with. Apparently, Jeremy had texted her asking for my number. I was in complete shock! This Greek god of a man was interested in ME? Hard to get must really work! After about a week of texting, come to find out his birthday was coming up and he was planning for all his friends to meet up at my beloved karaoke bar. That night, we played a game to break the ice which resulted in me kissing him (then a couple more shy kisses after the game had ended).
6 years later, we have 2 dogs, 1 cat and just bought our first home. I’m so glad I opened my heart to him because he has taken such good care of it since then.
How He Asked
My birthday was coming up and I love having themed parties. My co worker had given me a great idea- A 1920’s murder mystery dinner! I bring the idea up to Jeremy and he tells me to leave everything to him. He planned EVERYTHING, even going so far as to make characters for everyone! All our closest friends and family were there and we had a great time. The story was coming to a climax where my character was to be taken away to jail for “killing” my brother. Jeremy (The Chef) stopped the scene to expose the REAL killer, and then got down on one knee and proposed! He had tricked me with a decoy fashion ring a week earlier so I was VERY skeptical, thinking it was part of the show. After asking him if he was serious about 5 times, I said yes. I can’t believe he went through such great lengths and was able to hide it from me for months and everyone was in on it! By far the nicest thing anyone has done for me. I’m so excited to be marrying this man!
