Ashtin and Cameron
How We Met
Cameron and I met while attending the University of Oklahoma. He was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and worked as a “house boy” in the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house where I lived during my sophomore and junior year. We had seen each other around but never officially met.
In the fall of 2013, Cameron was setting up the Kappa dining room for an event that I was hosting. He was running behind schedule so I kept checking on him to find out how long it would be until the tables were set. He says that my “sassy” attitude made him laugh (still does!) After the event ended, Cameron asked one of the other house boys what my name was and we began talking to each other in passing.
I remember thinking he was sweet and had a good sense of humor, so I invited him to be my date for the next Kappa date party. We had such a great time at the party that we became inseparable!
How He Asked
I am a native of Southern California who loves the beach, warm sunshine and my sweet family. My fiancé Cameron is an Oklahoma boy to the core. He loves football, the Bible belt and his family more than anything. We met while both of us were attending the University of Oklahoma and his fraternity was across the street from my sorority house. He won me over with his ** We started dating and quickly became inseparable. We soon began talking about marriage as we were approaching graduation. Cameron told me that he wanted to plan a fairytale proposal that would involve both of our families. I had no idea how he would ever make that happen since our families lived halfway across the country from each other. A few months later, I went home to California to visit my family over Spring Break. On Thursday night my family planned a fancy dinner at the Montage in Laguna Beach because our week together was coming to an end. My sisters dragged me down to a lookout point with an ocean view so that we could “get some pictures.” As we walked toward the cliff, I saw a man in a black suit holding a bouquet of roses but had no earthly idea that it was Cameron. As we walked closer and I realized it was him standing there it felt like my heart stopped and I couldn’t breathe. I was in complete shock and overwhelmed with happiness. Cameron pulled off the surprise of my life by flying out to California with his family and proposing to me with BOTH of our families watching on a warm sunny afternoon overlooking the ocean. It was the most beautiful proposal and the perfect beginning of our journey to being married!
