Cassandra and Benjamin
How We Met
We met at orientation for our new jobs. Although our relationship did not begin until a few months later when we met again for a training. It was there that he offered to drive me to class after because I didn’t have a car and was afraid that I would be late. He drove me to and from for the rest of the week. We learned a lot about each other sitting in his car during the morning and afternoon rush hour. After our training was over I was afraid that we would no longer keep in contact, but we soon made plans to see each other outside of work.
How He Asked
Last year he brought me on his annual family vacation to Nantucket, MA. It’s the most beautiful and unique place I have ever been. On one evening, we went to an area known as Siasconset for dinner at The Summer House. We walked around for a while on the bluffs that overlook the ocean. In that moment I had told him that it would be a beautiful place for a proposal. He decided then that it would be the place that he would ask me to spend the rest of my life with him a year later.
During this year’s trip, we made arrangements to go to Siasconset for dinner again with his family. Once we arrived in the area, he pulled me back to the bluffs and reminded me what I had said a year ago. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
His family was waiting for us to have a celebratory dinner at The Chanticleer.
