Jourdan and Holt
How We Met
I was working the check-in table at an event for work when Holt and I first met. Given my event duties, we weren’t able to talk for very long. A few weeks later, we ran into each other again and this time we talked for hours. The night concluded with Holt asking for an official first date. Just a few days later, we met for a night consisting of sushi, a bar with vintage arcade games and lots of laughter. After that night, Holt and I went back to dinner four nights in a row! After two years of many more dates and fun memories, he asked me to spend forever with him!
How He Asked
Holt first surprised me with a trip to The Resort at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas. We had been the year prior, so I was excited at the thought of starting our first tradition. Little did I know, my life was about to change. On the first night, we had dinner reservations at a beautiful restaurant called El Farallon. As we were waiting for our “reservation”, we enjoyed a glass of champagne while overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Then, after the hostess informed us we would be having dinner elsewhere for the evening….my mind began to race. After a short golf cart ride across the resort and a walk reaching a rooftop terrace, I was greeted with the most beautiful table setting for two. As we approached the table Holt grabbed my hands and got down on one knee. Que the waterworks. Next thing I knew he had reached for my hand and had given me the ring of my dreams. After wiping away the tears of joy we sat down and enjoyed the most memorable dinner of my life. Long story short, what I thought was going to be a great trip to the beach turned out to be the greatest night of my life.
