Jayana and Scott
How We Met
Scott and I met in high school and started dating our junior year in 2008. After college, Scott commissioned into the Navy as an officer in 2014 and found out he was stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. I visited as much as I could and we did the “long distance” thing for about a year. We decided that long distance sucked and we knew we wanted to be together so I packed up and moved to Hawaii at the beginning of 2016 (really had to twist my arm there!!).
How He Asked
My family came out a few months later to visit! It was my birthday so we decided to go to a Luau and celebrate. We did all the fun activities at the luau and finally sat down to have dinner (Kalua pork yum!, which we will have at our cocktail hour). The main show of hula dancers and fire dancers began after dinner. There is a traditional Hawaiian wedding song and dance. While they performed the number, they asked for any couples in love to come join them and dance on the beach. It was so dark and I had no clue what was going on but Scott was all of a sudden on one knee and the rest is history, as they say!
