How She Asked: Rachel and Sylina
How We Met
We met 3 and a half years ago, on a dating website. I was on there to delete my account, and she had just signed up. Thinking it could be some kind of fate, I sent her a message and we hit it off. We talked for months before meeting up, and we both knew right away there was a spark there. We have the same sense of humour, and the same love for animals and helping others. We have always enjoyed anything, as long as we are together!
How He Asked
The sunday had started off with Sylina & I going to an open house, as we are house hunting. We loved the place and decided to put an offer in on it (later we found out we didn’t get it though), and we were supposed to go to meet up with some friends. I am a wedding photographer, and my friend had asked me to take some photos for her website (she’s a photographer too!). We decided to dress up and go for a nice dinner afterwards. We finished up our house offer and rushed to Bayfield as the sun was setting, making it just in time to the water front. My friend asked us to walk down the beach so she could test out our lighting and take a couple nice pictures of us. She had me posed so I was turned looking away from Sylina. She said she needed to change her lens, so I turned to talk to Sylina, and when I turned around, she was on one knee. She had the biggest smile on her face, and she asked me to marry her! I was so shocked I said “Are you serious?!”, and she asked me again. I said yes, of course, and we both ended up crying. She had planned the whole thing out, as well as asked my parents blessing to ask me. Now, we have these beautiful photos to cherish, and I get to marry the girl of my dreams!
