Brooke and Sully
How We Met
We met very briefly my freshman year of college in October of 2011. Anytime I saw him on campus after that I would avoid him at all costs, because I was always in sweatpants and a messy bun for those 8 am classes. On November 1, 2011, Sully and I were at the same get together with some friends and he stared at me the whole night. Every time I looked up his bright blue eyes were set on me. Later that night he had his friend text my friend about me. They invited us over to watch some movies and the rest is history! We have been inseparable since that very night.
How He Asked
It was just before Halloween of 2017 when Sully asked me if I could take off work November 13 & 14. I asked him why and he wouldn’t tell me because It was a surprise trip. He told me we were leaving 11/11/17 and returning and 11/14/17. On November 1, 2017 I received a gift for our 6 year anniversary. Sully had gotten me a gold bracelet with 11-11-17 engraved on it. I was confused by the date, because that was not our anniversary, but he insisted that the bracelet was supposed to say 11-1-17 for our anniversary. Everyday leading up to our trip I received a white gift bag with a hand made card, a gift, and a clue to where we were going.
It was so exciting to get home from work and open a new bag everyday. I was so excited when I found out we were going to Cancun!
When we got to Cancun we were staying in the most beautiful resort fully equipped with a butler and all. I couldn’t have picked a better place to stay and was so shocked he did all of this on his own!
We were laying out by the ocean and he said that we had a dinner reservation at 5:45 so we needed to leave to get ready. He steamed our clothes for us while we got ready to ensure that we were picture perfect. On the way down to dinner we took a little detour to beach and on to this pier. We were taking a few pictures and the next thing I know he is down on one knee! He told me how he wanted to ask me something that he had been wanting to ask me for the last 6 years. It was the most beautiful proposal and afterwards we had a private dinner for just the two of us on a pier in the middle of the ocean. I couldn’t have planned a better trip or proposal. I am so lucky I get to marry this guy!
