Bridget and Jason
How He Asked
Jason woke me up at 5:00 a.m. and told me I was going to work that day. I am a teacher, so I was really confused and said I could not miss work. He said it was taken care of and to take a shower and get ready. He finally told me we were going to get breakfast in Jacksonville with some people from his work. He is a pilot, so it is normal for us to fly places. I was fighting him about it all morning and he told me to call my friend because she knew to tell me everything was ok. We got to his work and got on the plan with two of his friends. They said it was a 2 hour flight, so I slept most of the ride. I did hear one of the guys accidentally say he could see the castle, but I pretended like I did not hear because Jason was mad at him. At this point, I knew something was going on. We landed in Orlando because they said we needed fuel for the plane. Before I knew it, his 2 friends were saying goodbye and heading back on the plane. Jason led me to a car he had rented and told me to get in. In the car, I saw our suitcases and started freaking out. He told me we were going to Disney for the night. I still knew something was going on, but I was not sure it was a proposal. Ilene drove to the hotel, got changed and went to Hollywood Studios. After that, we headed to Magic Kingdom. It has always been a dream of mine to get engaged in front of the castle. I knew it might happen, but I did not want to get my hopes up. While we were waiting for the Electric Parade, Jason asked me to take a picture in front of the castle with him. Jason never likes taking pictures, so I knew this was it. He asked one of the workers to take our picture and it was taking a while (he was telling her to take a bunch because he was proposing). We took a normal picture and then he grabbed my hands. He told me how much he loved me and how he wanted to make all my dreams come true. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Once people started to see, they started clapping and yelling. It was the most amazing moment of my entire life. In July, we will be having a fairytale wedding and I will be marrying my Prince Charming!
