Christopher and Alexis
How We Met
Chris and I met our sophomore year of high school among mutual friends. It was homecoming season and I wanted to get the girls and the guys together for dinner before the dance. I remember walking up to Chris in our high schools field house after school hours before he went to football practice and suggesting that the girls and the boys all go to dinner together as one big group. He looked me in the face and just said “No. It’s just the guys.” I walked away and continued to chat with my girlfriends about plans(thinking wow what an ass LOL.) The night of the dance after our separate dinners, we approached each other and started to dance (just picture two 15 yet olds dancing together lol).
We felt an instant bond and Chris ended up asking our mutual best friend at the time for my number. He texted me after the night was over – “Hey what’s up? It’s Chris.” Since that night we have texted each other every single day and started dating a few weeks after the Homecoming dance on November 6, 2009 when we were just 15. Not knowing the potential of our relationship we dated the rest of high school and all through 5 years of college (long distance-Michigan, Ohio, California) and now we got engaged on the most beautiful island of Santorini. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect person to spend the rest of my life with. We are 23 and now live in on the east coast together. ❤️
How He Asked
My fiancé, Christopher set up a private yacht tour for the two of us on the island of Santorini with drinks and dinner included.
He waited until sunset to take me up to the front of the boat and get on one knee and pop the question! I got emotional and of course I said YES! It’s been a fairy-tale since.
