Woman Proposes to Her Girlfriend With an Entire Musical About Their Relationship

photo 1How we met: Kriss and Lauren-Joy met on an online dating site. Lauren-Joy being 5’11 had set a strict height requirement of no woman under 5’8. A few weeks into her online dating venture, she took a risk and dropped the height requirement down to 5’6…. and there was Kriss!

After a few weeks of talking back and forth they agreed to go on a first date. What started out as dinner and drinks turned into 8+ hours of them talking and laughing. They both went home that night knowing they had found the woman they would spend the rest of their lives with.

How she asked: On Monday September 15th, 2014, Kriss surprised Lauren-Joy at work with a town car. She was then driven to her house and given 30 minutes to pack an overnight bag and get ready for a night on the town.

The first stop was the restaurant where they had their first date. Inside were three of Lauren-Joy’s friends to surprise her and calm her nerves! Next stop, a local theater where Kriss invited Lauren-Joy to see a brand new musical. Little did she know it would change their lives forever…

With the help of family and friends, the story of their love was beautifully told through scenes, songs and quotes from the everyday lives of Kriss and Lauren-Joy. In the last act, they were surrounded by family and friends as Kriss got down on one knee and asked Lauren-Joy to be her wife.

Lauren-Joy said “absolutely”!
