Christina and Grant
How We Met
Grant and I met when I was 15 (a sophomore) and he was 16 (a junior). We met while practicing tennis together at our high school and I remember him always making fun of my laugh. We dated for 6 months but went our separate ways after that. In 2008, at the end of my senior year, we started talking again over aol instant messenger. The connection came back instantly and I asked him to my senior prom. We officially got back together on January 22nd, 2009 and we have been best friends ever since.
How He Asked
A proposal in Paris!?! What more could a girl ask for?! When I asked Grant how he came up with the idea to ask me to marry him in Paris, he said: “We have been together for 9 years and you deserve the best, so I thought of the best city in the world to ask you!” …the city of love! Grant planned an amazing 3 week Italy trip for us, with a few days in Paris. He wanted everything to be a surprise.
When we woke up the morning after Valentines Day, he told me that we were going to have a private tour guide take us around the city and take pictures of us and we would go to dinner at Le Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower after. I knew something was up the moment I met the professional photographer (and the fact that Grant was shaking he was so nervous). Grant got down on one knee in front of the Eiffel Tower and asked me to marry him – I haven’t stopped smiling since! It was a dream come true! I can’t wait to marry my best friend.
