Brittani and Ben

How We Met

Ben and I met our freshman year in high school. I had one class with him at the beginning of the year but I didn’t notice him right away. The second semester we had three classes together and the seating charts that the teacher created we were either sitting right next to each other or near each other and then we just started talking.

How He Asked

In 2017 we went on a family trip to Disneyworld. There were eight people in our group. My parents, my brother and his girlfriend, my grandparents, and Ben and I. The first day and magic kingdom we were all walking into the park together wanting to get group pictures together. My mom was saying she wanted a picture closer to the castle so we kept walking until we were right next to the mickey mouse and Walt Disney statue right in front of the castle. We got a big group picture together and then it was a couple of pictures, my brother then said Ben and Brittani are last. So we waited until everyone had their pictures taken and then it was our turn. We got a few pictures taken and I was starting to walk away. When Ben turned to me and got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. Of course, I said yes!
