Briana and Luke

Briana's Proposal in My home town of Gilbert, AZ in my backyard

How We Met

Luke and I met my in college pre-season training camp for soccer and volleyball when he was a freshman and I was a sophomore. I had noticed him in passing and I knew he was new on the team, and I told a few on my team and his that I though he was cute. It wasn’t until a few days later when my team and I were playing truth or dare in our cafeteria when one of my teammates dared me to stand up on the table and scream “I have a crush on a mens soccer player!” As soon as I did, Luke’s whole team started hassling him and shouting his name. I for sure thought I would never even get to meet him after that embarrassment, but somehow after that, he reached out to me. From then on we grew into best friends!

How He Asked

Fast forward 4 years later when Luke had told me repeatedly that he was not going to be able to make it out to Arizona with me for Thanksgiving. I was so sad and he even let me cry over it because I wanted him to be there so badly! Little did I know he had to be best surprise in store for me. I had just gotten back from spending time with a friend that morning, when my mom told me to head outside to see my dad and my dog! As soon as I opened the back door I saw the rose petals on the ground leading me to Luke! At this point I could not contain my happiness and shock and could hardly wait for him to finish his amazing speech. I was the able to say YES to the man of my dreams! :) Who would have thought that 4 years ago a little dare would lead me to the love of my life! :)
