Deanna and Justin

Justin and Deanna Century TreeHow We Met: I met Justin when I was 16 and he was 18. We met at a football game on Friday night and have been joined at the hip basically. We only knew each other one week before we made it “official”. Here we are almost 6 years later and engaged. I love my High School Sweetheart!

How He Asked: It was a day of Bluebonnet pictures with my family. I got off work at 1 and rushed home to get ready to take pictures at 2. Little did I know, he had something up his sleeve. We arrived to our first destination to take Bluebonnet pictures (only to stall his parents to get to the actual proposal site) and took a ton of pictures there. Next, we headed to Texas A&M University to take the next set of pictures. As we were walking to our destination, we walked right by the Century Tree. The Century Tree is a tradition at A&M- when a couple walks under the tree together, they are to be together for the rest of their lives. Justin asked me, “Hey, what’s that tree?” (Even though he already knew the answer) I told him “It’s the Century Tree, let’s take a picture!” After a few pictures, I figured we would keep walking to go take Bluebonnet pictures, but then it happened! Justin called me back and got down on one knee and popped the question! He couldn’t even finish it before I had tears in my eyes. Of course, I SAID YES!! What a great way to start Easter weekend and an even better way to live up to the Aggie Tradition, WHOOP! I can’t wait to marry this guy!
