Brittany and Jake

Brittany and Jake's Engagement in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico

How We Met

Jake’s best friends names are Matt and Michael. They lived a block away outside the campus of our university. One night we had a pool party and watched the shallows. Jake was there but I didn’t pay him much attention. After the movie, the pool party ended and everybody went to their apartments. About half an hour later I hear a knock on my door. It was past midnight and I was wondering who could possibly be at my door.

Brittany's Proposal in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico

I open it and Jake was standing there looking incredibly nervous. He asked me on a date for the following Tuesday and I said yes. I found out later that Jake had been wanting to ask me out for a while, and when he didn’t at the pool party, his roommates locked him out of the apartment till he went and asked me. So glad they pushed him into it ;) we started dating about a month later!

How He Asked

On March 20th at 8:30 pm the sun started to set on Soggy Peso Beach. My cute boyfriend of 8 months grabbed my hand and urged me to follow him. We stood up from our table though we were all waiting for our food. We walked down by the shore, I kissed him and continued telling a story about this lady on my mission (that would mimic us in a baby voice, Its a funny story, trust me.) I’ll have to tell it again though because he wasn’t paying much attention. When I turned back to him he was on his knee.

His blue eyes were shining in the sun and he sweetly asked me to marry him. My mom was a little way down the beach and snapped these pictures. It was such a special moment! One I’ll cherish forever. The day I made a choice, the choice I’ll make every day for the rest of my life.

Special Thanks
