Amanda and Anthony
How We Met
Anthony and I have known each other for quite some time. We met when I was about 16 for the first time. I would go watch my cousins play soccer and he would be there playing. We never really paid any mind to one another, just the occasional hello and good-bye here and there. We were even at the same parties on opposite sides of the room. It wasn’t until I was 25 that we really started getting to know each other. We were both invited to my best friends wedding. I asked him for a ride to and from the wedding. Now Anthony’s version, he’d tell you I had purposely left my cell phone in his car that night. However, it really was by accident because I fell asleep and it fell out of my bag. The following day, I went to his apartment to get my phone back and ended up staying there, having breakfast and watching “Gone Girl” together. After that the rest was history. Anthony became my boyfriend and the love of my life. A part of me always knew that he was the one. To this very day I still feel butterflies when he kisses me. He is my best friend and soul mate.
How He Asked
Anthony made my lifelong dream of being proposed to in Disney World a reality. On December 8, 2017, surrounded by my amazing family, Anthony got down on one knee and made my fairytale come to life. The timing could not have been more perfect. As Cinderella’s Castle was being lit up and fireworks were blazing, I said yes to the easiest question I ever had to answer.
