Sean and Dayami High School Sweethearts Fourth of July proposal (1)

How We Met: Sean and I met in the 4th grade, I had a huge crush on him in 4th and 5th grade and we slow danced together at our end of the year 5th grade graduation party. We didn’t start officially dating until August of 2004, when we were sophomores in high school! We are most definitely high school sweethearts! We dated all through high school and college as we both went to different schools in Orlando, FL and Deland, FL. We are both originally from Miami, Fl and still live there today!

How He Asked: This was one of the greatest days of my life! We went to Chicago for Fourth of July weekend and our annual vacation at this time of year! We visited all the beautiful sites and places Chicago has to offer! The day it happened we had just had dinner and grabbed a bottle of champagne to have at the Navy Pier where we were going to go after we visited the Beautiful Lincoln Park in Chicago. As we walked through the park and saw all the beautiful flowers, we approached a breathtaking pond and a bench for us to sit, he said this looks good right here let’s sit and open the champagne here, I said okay and I sat down.

Then he took off his backpack (that he had been holding on to VERY right the entire trip) and pulled out a his long Yankee T-shirt that he wore on our first date when we were 15 years old! He then said I have loved you and knew I was going to marry you since our first date and he got on his knee and said the words I had been waiting to hear “Will you marry me?” And I proceeded to cry and was shaking and in shock and couldn’t believe it was happening! He cried as well and we couldn’t stop kissing and hugging! It was one of the greatest moments of my life and being that it is our 10 year anniversary on August 26, 2014, I couldn’t think of a better place and time that he could of done it! The ring was beyond my wildest dreams and we can’t wait for what the rest of our lives and our journey has in store for us! We couldn’t be happier!
