Bindi and James

How We Met: James and I met through mutual friends in High School back in 2005. We quickly became friends and grew close during our Sophmore year in High School. After a few years of talking everyday, texting everyday and seeing eachother almost everyday, we found ourselves falling for eachother. Eventually we decided to take our relationship to the next level and started dating, the rest is history!

How He Asked: It was our 7 1/2 year anniversary and seeing that it was the “Lucky 7” year we decided to have a rooftop dinner date at a popular place called Z Hotel. As we arrived we were escorted to an elevator where I noticed James  getting a little nervous. As we got to the rooftop, before the doors opened, he smiled at me and took my phone away from my hand. The doors then opened and I was speechless! A pathway lit with candle light, rose pedals, our closest friends and John Legend’s “All Of Me” playing.

I was stunned looking around and seeing all the faces, and the beautiful view of the skyline. The next thing I knew, James got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I literally could not even gather the words to say yes, I was busy saying “oh my God!”. My friends yelled “Say yes!” and that’s when I did! He took the promise ring he gave me off my ringer and slid the stunning engagement ring on.

Afterwards I took a look around the rooftop, taking it all in and loving every moment. My fiancé then escorted us all downstairs for a surprise dinner he had planned for us as well. It was hands down one of the most magical days of my life!
