Jessie and Patrick
How we met: We met four years ago on Valentines Day. I was sitting in a church service with a couple friends. A friend told me to turn around and look at a guy. When I turned around I saw him smiling. My heart started beating so fast. Later that night my friends and I were talking… And they started joking about how I was going to marry that guy I saw that day at church. The next time I saw him we couldn’t stop talking and that’s how we started.
How he asked: The night before, I was planning the next day for us. We had plans to go early to a local country fair. Patrick out of know where said he needed to meet a friend. His “friend” mistakenly took one of his tools at work and Patrick needed to get it back. If you know Patrick, you’d know he’s not the type to misplace his tools. I told him okay, but asked if we’d have time to get to the fair early enough. He said yes.
Saturday morning comes… Clueless me gets ready, nothing special. I throw on some jeans and a cute top. Patrick put on an outfit a little cuter than normal and I didn’t even notice!! We drive close to where the guy lives but Patrick took a wrong turn into a park. He told me that his friend was going to meet us here. He asked if I wanted to go down by the docks and wait. I still had NO CLUE!
We’re on the docks, Patrick leans to a pillar and writes I love you in the the morning dew that was on it. I wrote back… U 2. He took my hand and said I’m ready to be more than best friends…..Got down on one knee and asked will you marry me? I was so nervous and hysterically crying he had to ask again and I said yes! The whole time his “friend” was taking pictures of the whole thing!
