Alyssa and Anthony

How We Met

Anthony and I met late in the year of 2014. I was a waitress at this little restaurant downtown. I walked into work one day when I saw Anthony sitting in the back. He had gotten hired on at my work to cook in the back with my boss. He was so handsome to me. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. We talked the whole time he was there and exchanged numbers that first night. We worked together the next couple of nights and he decided the job just wasn’t for him and he left to find something else. As busy as I was at the time we didn’t talk much after he left. About a week passed when he finally asked me out. We went to the movies and played pool. After that first date, we were and are still inseparable. I knew I loved him.

How He Asked

In June, my family took a trip to Florida. Of course, Anthony came with us. I was really looking forward to this trip cause I absolutely love the beach and I was also getting to go to Disney World for the first time in my life. Which is a very big deal because I so happen to love disney! I had already had a feeling honestly about him proposing considering we had talked about rings, marriage, and the fact that he left an empty ring box holder on the laundry basket one night. On June 16, 2016 at the magic kingdom, during the firework show, he pulled me up in front of the whole park and proposed right there. It was the best night of my life. With all the excitement going on and how sweet he was to take the time to actually surprise me. I had no idea because he had the ring in his pocket all day and we had been on roller-coasters and running around everywhere, it was just so exciting. Definitely my fairy tale moment.
