Andrea and Boston

24534_1382171912392_35485_nHow We Met: Boston and I are high school sweethearts! We started dating in high school and continued on throughout college, attending the same school. After graduation he moved with me from California to Nashville, TN to support me through Occupational Therapy school.

We have been on so many life adventures, grown up together, and  have created an awesome team throughout the past 7 years. From high school to adulthood he has been my rock, my support, and my best friend through it all. There is nothing that the two of us can’t take on together!

How He Asked: We had been talking about marriage for a while now…. After 7 years we were ready! However, while attending graduate school I knew that I needed to focus on my studies and that an engagement would be a distraction for me. Boston and I both understood that waiting until my studies were complete was our best option, no matter how badly we wanted to get married.

At 5pm on May 1st, I passed my comprehensive exam and was officially done with classes forever! The next morning, we decided to go to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens to celebrate, I had been dying to go there the past 2 years but had been too busy to ever find the time to go. When we arrived at the Cheekwood mansion there was a single rose laying on the balcony.

Boston walked over to it, picked it up and handed it to me. I immediately started blubbering like a baby when he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was so surprised and it was more amazing than I ever dreamt of.

And he did exactly what we discussed…he waited until I was finished with my studies… little did I know it would be just a short 18 hours later :) I am so so so excited to spend forever with my best friend and high school sweetheart!
