How We Met

Jordan and I met at the Baton Rouge St. Patricks Day parade on March 15, 2014. One of my friends from nursing school had been trying to arrange for the two of us to meet for about 6 months prior to this day, but it just never worked out. I happened to go to the parade with her, and we were just walking down the street after the parade to meet up with some of our other friends, and she happened to spot Jordan walking around. She instantly and very excitedly introduced us. For the rest of the day, Jordan and I talked and talked. We had a great time and have been lucky in love ever since!

How He Asked

We planned a family trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida to celebrate my 25th and my sisters 20th birthday! We had a very busy and exciting trip planned. Our second night there we had plans for our group of 11 people to have dinner at Ohana in the Polynesian to celebrate my 25th birthday. We had a wonderful table that had a view of Cinderella’s Castle in the background. After we finished eating a spectacular dinner, the waiter came out with a cake. As the waiter delivered the cake to the table and placed it in front of me, Jordan got up from his chair and stood right behind me. I read the cake and instead of saying “Happy Birthday Katie” it said “Will You Marry Me?”.

I was in total shock! I turned around and Jordan helped me out of my chair, all i could do was hug him. After a few minutes of me hugging him, he got down on one knee and asked if i would spend the rest of my life with him. Of course i said yes!! And we had a wonderful time celebrating our engagement the rest of the trip!
