CJ and Catie

How We Met

Neither of us had much faith in dating or were looking for anything serious when we met online. Having nothing to lose, he picked me up at 7 and we went to a fancy restaurant on our first date. Not only were we the last table to leave that night, but we discussed everything you typically don’t on the first date.

How He Asked

Neither of us had much faith in dating or were looking for anything serious when we met online. Having nothing to lose, he picked me up at 7 and we went to a fancy restaurant on our first date. Not only were we the last table to leave that night, but we discussed everything you typically don’t on the first date. A little over two years later, he told me he wanted to go back to the restaurant for my birthday celebration. That morning he convinced me to paint my nails and put on a dress before we drove two hours to have brunch with my family. From there, we window shopped and enjoyed a date day before heading to dinner. As we left the restaurant, he stopped and asked a woman waiting outside to take a picture of us where we had waited on our first date. It was then that he turned to me and said, “so you know this is where we had our first date…”

He bent over to pull something out of his sock, and I began to realize what was happening and why he had been so adamant about going to that specific restaurant and dressing up. Behind all the tears I whispered “of course I will,” pulled him up off his knee, and kissed him. I will never forget him saying, “well at least let me put the ring on!” and the cheer that erupted from the crowd that had formed on the busy street corner.
