Angela and Fielder
How We Met
In the summer of 2010 two of our mutual friends Jenn (Jenny the Jet) Seay & Ericka (E-Money) Hunter had been trying / “scheming” to set us up. This went on for a few months but with no progress. Jenn & Ericka were both teemmates with myself “the bride” as Nashville Rollergirls as well as Fielder’s work colleagues. One night, September 7, 2010 to be exact, I decided to go to the Beyond the Edge which is a local sports bar in East Nashville to hang out with friends Jenn, Ericka and Keely. That night Fielder had happened to be there as he had just gotten off work and was playing ping pong. (Yes, Fielder was an avid ping pong player or as he likes to refer to it – table tennis). One thing led to another and finally we both started talking to each other. Fielder suggested that we get coffee sometime so we exhanged numbers. About a week later we met for coffee, which turned into lunch at Mitchell’s Deli. The rest is history.
How He Asked
It was Christmas moring 2014 about 6am. We were sleeping in the living room at my parents house next to the Christmas tree. Fielder wakes me before anyone in the house was up. He nudged me and said “are you awake?” I said “yes” He then tells Me “I have another Christmas present for you” (We had already exchanged presents before getting on the flight to Jersey). I asks bewildered “what?” He says “ME” Still unsure about what he meant he pulls out a ring from under the covers and said “Will you marry me?” I said “YES”
