Erin and Justin | A Six Year Old's Dream Comes True
How We Met: When I was 6 years old, Justin and I were both in my sister’s wedding as the Jr. Bridesmaid and Groomsmen. From that day on I dreamed about marrying him.
We hadn’t see each other for many years after, but he ended up moving to Alabama from Louisiana – and I am so glad that he did! Although I gave him the cold shoulder for a few weeks, I finally gave him a chance. It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
How He Asked: During Christmas, the big thing in our hometown is going to Bellingrath gardens to see all the lights that they put it up. He told me to pick a day that I wanted to go so I did. Then he told me to invite my parents and my best friend.
We got there and began to walk around, we took a few pictures and continued walking. There was this certain spot with two angels, my best friend Ivy suggested Justin and I go take a picture there.
I, for one, am a sucker for pictures but Justin not so much. But even he agreed we should take a picture there so I said sure why not!
As I started to get ready for the picture he says “I came here yesterday” He definitely lost me there. (he and my best friend went and scouted the perfect spot to pop the question while I was at work.)
He said I came here yesterday to find this spot to ask you this…and he got down on one knee. Who would have ever thought I would get to marry the man that I dreamed of marrying when I was 6?!
