Autumn and Zachary
How We Met
Zach and met when we were 15 & 16 in high school. I was new to the school and I was in the cafeteria and the guy in front of me had heelys on… he was skating back and fourth and finally I said to him “nice heelys” he turned around and said thanks! And from there he constantly kept asking a mutual friend we had for my number. We dated in high school, split our ways after he left for college for a year and then got back together. We have been together for about 5 years. Distance was a huge part of our relationship as he attended Texas A&M and I was in school in Austin. We finally both moved back to Dallas, Texas where we are from and moved in together in Grapevine. After 8 years of knowing each other, Last Saturday he asked me to be his wife.
How He Asked
He told me he had won a $100 gift card through a raffle at work! I am also a food blogger so this excited me- Our friend Justin invited us after to a lawyer’s party which was not in usual as we had been to a few before. We were both dressed up very nice and made our way to The Woolworth for dinner, from there we walked to the Omni Hotel in Downtown Dallas where the party was set to be. We went to the 4th floor where the best Dallas Skyline was and he got on one knee and asked me to be his wife, my friends and family came out behind a wall and I was in so much shock and overwhelmed with joy.
I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with Zach.
