Jess and Chris
How We Met
We met through a high school friend over 10 years ago & will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary on the 19th of December 2018.
How He Asked
My best friend had asked me to be her plus one for her friend’s engagement party. She told me it was going to be like a mini wedding so I had to be super extra. I got a new dress and got my nails & hair did. It was at La Perouse in Sydney. When we arrived she said there was a marquee on the beach for cocktails. As we walked onto the beach all I could see was a pathway of candles and rose petals leading to a table and chairs. My best friend walks me to the chairs and she leaves. At this point, I’m thinking there is no way that Chris is here right now. A few moments later as I’m sitting facing the ocean with candles everywhere, ‘Marry me’ by Jason Derulo starts playing. Tears are streaming down my face, then Chris taps the back of my shoulder and walks out in front of me. He gets down on one knee and says the sweetest things. I couldn’t stop smiling and then he asks me to marry him. I’m still in shock. I have no idea how he pulled it off.
