Dorian and Chauncy

How We Met

At the time there was a Greek step show and party going on at Baylor University where I attended undergrad. I was at the party with my sorority sisters, and he was visiting from TAMU-Commerce with his fraternity brothers. After the party was over, we happened to meet and exchange numbers. It took about a year for me to seriously give him a chance, but when I did it was amazing. Through the years we have had our ups and downs, but through it all our chemistry and love has been undeniable.

How He Asked

The week of his birthday I decided to throw Chauncy a birthday dinner. I love birthdays and I wanted him to feel extremely special on his day.  There was a lot of time spent planning, reaching out to guests, etc.  in order to ensure the night would be as flawless as possible. On the day of the dinner I was relieved that he could enjoy his dinner, and that we could focus on our trip the following day to Cancun! Dinner was going great when suddenly he wanted to make a toast. I assumed he wanted to thank everyone for coming out so I pulled up snapchat in order to capture the moment.

He began thanking our guests when all of a sudden he reached into the breast pocket of his blazer, pulled out a ring box and got on one knee. Despite this being his day, he wanted to show me how much he loves me by making this day all about me. He asked me to marry him, and through a lot of tears I said “YES!” I ended up finding out that obviously while I was planning his dinner, he had a few tricks up his sleeve. It was perfection because I pride myself on being in the know, but this time I had NO idea. #HeadingWest
