Jenna and Chad
How We Met
Chad went to college at the University of Arkansas. He ended up being good friends with my sister Lacie. I have always known of chad but never had the chance to meet him. Seeing as I lived in California. Eventually time went on and we both lived our lives only knowing “about” each other.
In August of 2015, my family and I decided to take a trip to Hawaii. While we were in Hawaii, we ran into someone who hs ruined Chad’s life. Lacie confronted the girl and we walked off. She told me “Oh my gosh we have to call Chad.” We headed upstairs and that’s where it all started
Lacie dialed Chads number and it was right there I knew he was meant to be in my life. His beautiful snails and blue eyes just made me melt. We told him who we ran into and after that day we kept in touch
Fast forward to August 2016. Chad and I could never date due to being so far away. Him in Little Rock and me in California just was not doable. I moved to Dallas in March of 2016. Chad had had a new girlfriend and I thought I lost my shot. Three months later…the rest is history.
We started dating in November 2016. He asked me to be his girlfriend and it’s been game over ever since. Now as of 11/4/17 I was asked to be his wife.
How He Asked
Earlier this year, we started planning my 30th birthday that was on November 6th. I wanted to do something super special. What I didn’t mention is that I have been sober for almost 5 years. I figured what better way to celebrate my 30th with family in Cabo San Lucas. I started to send out the invites. My sisters, my brother, both set of my parents, chads parents, chads sister and a few friends were all invited to join. It started to get a little hectic so I almost said forget it. Chad promised me everything would work out. So I trusted the process. I thought there was no way we’d get everyone out there.
We booked our trip in July. Slowly but surely everyone booked there’s. I couldn’t believe it.
November 3rd rolls around and it’s time for us to get outnto cabo to celebrate. Chad has asked me when booking if there was anything I wanted to do. I told him I just wanted to relax and hang with everyone. He later told me he had planned a private sunset dinner cruise for Saturday. I was super excited.
Saturday rolls around and it’s time for the boat cruise. Not only did everyone of our family members know. The whole crew knew. We pulled up to the beautiful arches of Lovers beach. Everyone had gathered to the front of the boat to take a group photo. They all left and kept me up at the front distracting me with the seals. Then out of no where, there’s chad getting everyone’s attention. After a few wonderful words he got down and asked me to marry him. I was so excited I forgot to say yes. But my emotions spoke for themselves
