Courtney and Luke
How We Met
We met in high school art class. He actually had a crush on a different girl in my class but we really hit it off at a party and the rest is history!
How He Asked
I went to my Grammy and Pierre’s house for Christmas Eve. He said that he had to help his dad at church that day so he couldn’t come and I’m not going to lie…I was pretty upset! Christmas Eve is a very special holiday for our family so I was very sad he couldn’t be there. Anyway, I went alone and we were all sitting around the living room opening presents. Then the doorbell rang and my whole family went over to see who it was (I guess they knew something was up but I still had no clue at this point). They all called me over and I was shocked that Luke was there!
Even when I saw him, I just thought he came to surprise me because he was finished helping his dad earlier than he thought so I went right back into the living room to sit back down where I was sitting. He came over and got down on one knee and I was still in shock! I had no idea what was happening! It was so special that he did it there because my Grammy passed away from ALS in July of 2013 and she was like a second mom to me. So it felt like she was part of this special moment. My ENTIRE family was there and they were all crying! And my dad is in the background on his phone…his way of coping with his firstborn getting engaged, ha!
