Brittany and Zachary

How We Met: We met at church when we were 8 and 9 years old.

How He Asked: How he asked? As I was helping him move in and arrange boxes in his apartment, we started to talk about the future as we always do. He started walking towards his room, when he suddenly said “Brittany come here.” I started to walk towards him. When I met him in his room, he started to say the word OUR and as he was talking he started getting teary eyed and began pouring his heart and love into the atmosphere. He then reach into a case and pulled out a box with a ribbon on it.

He started to cry and I started to cry with him as he got down on one knee and asked me the question, “Brittany Elaine Thomas, will you marry me?” Of course I said YES!!!! He said that he couldn’t wait any longer and that it was the right time. We called our parents right after before anyone else knew. Now that’s part one. Part two was what was suppose to happen but he said, he couldn’t hold it in any longer and that the right time was when we were in the apartment together alone.

Therefore, part two was the following. We went over my sis house for our nephew’s birthday party. I went to the bathroom and as I was coming out, I heard my song playing, “Grow Old With You,” from the movie, The Wedding Singer which is one of my favorite movies.

As I walked into the living room my nephew Kyran tap me and said “I found this!” As I looked down at his hand, it was a ring and as I turned around,  Zach was right there. He said some loving and heartfelt words, got down on one knee again and said “Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife,” and I said YES, once again.
