Emily and Jalen

How We Met: Jalen and I met in high school in 2009, we had attended the same middle school but didn’t really know each other until high school. We attended different high schools but that didn’t matter! We started dating on October 30, 2009 and not a day goes by that I am not thankful that we saw each other across a church parking lot and started to get to know each other again. We attended the same university and have been together for what will be 6 years in October!

How He Asked: We had both just graduated from Western Carolina University all of our family was in town to watch what I just thought was a graduation! After we walked across the stage and recieved our diplomas we went outside to take pictures in our cap and gowns with our family and friends, little did I know he had other plans for the pictures. As we stood in front of our family and friends he asked me to be his wife!
