How We Met

Jacquelyne and I met 7 years ago through my mom who got coffee every morning from her. One day I was getting my moms coffee and pulled up to the stand and fell in love instantly. I would go there every night to visit for about 3 or 4 months and eventually got the courage and ask her out. We went dancing and my heart was racing the whole night and I was sweating and weak at the knees! After dancing for a few hours our eyes locked and kissed!!! At that moment my heart was hers.

Shortly after my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer. Jacquelyne was my rock through everything the good days and a lot of bad ones as well. My mom passed away after battling 4 years and she never left my side for one second.

Unfortunately Jacquelyne and I split up about a year after my heart being broke from my moms death and not able to be the boyfriend I needed to be.

Fast forward one year I was on Facebook one day and had a message and who was it from but Jacquelyne!!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes but didn’t get too excited . Then read the words “I miss you” she stole my heart once again!

How I Asked

We gave it another shot and within a year I already knew I needed to make this amazing girl my wife. So the planning began! I went and talked to her parents and found an amazing rooftop in Seattle WA called the nest. I secretly arranged everyone to come telling all but a few it was a Groupon deal for a sunset happy hour. I had a friend ready to video the whole thing secretly. Jacquelyne showed up with her parents not knowing what was about to go down! The video below will show the rest!
