Kiersten and Gabriel

How We Met

In July of 2016, Gabriel took a job in the same department where I was working at. At first, I really didn’t notice him but as time went on, my coworkers started to see that he would be staring at me. That’s when one of my coworkers would joke around saying that I should talk to him and that he is so nice and compassionate for the people we served at work. One day, it was just us two in the room and we were listening to some classic rock music, which we are both very much in to. We were talking about the various musicians we love and different bands we liked to listen to. After that, we didn’t really talk to each other until one night I decided to add him on Facebook. Instantly, he sent me a message and we did not stop talking the rest of the night. That weekend he asked me to go out to the movies and to get some dinner with him. At that time, I wasn’t really sure if I was into him or not, plus I just accepted a job position that would require me to move six hours from where we were both at. But, I still went on the date for the food! It was that date when I realized this guy was my soulmate. We clicked so well together and it felt like we were best friends for our whole life. It was from that date, which we have been inseparable since even through the process of moving to another state and back. We made it work!

How He Asked

We have been planning this vacation to Bermuda since February of this year and as the vacation neared, so did Hurricane Irma. We were so upset because the cruise line had mentioned about changing the itinerary to go to Canada instead. The night before we left, it had been finalized that we were set to go to Bermuda! Fast forward three days and we were standing on the beach of Horseshoe Bay. Even though a relatively cloudy day, we decided to take a walk to where we found a private beach. After exploring the areathe sun began to shine through the clouds and it became an absolutely gorgeous day. Gabriel took me by the waist and started confessing his love to me and how excited he was about our future together. My heart began to race and I knew the moment was finally here! Before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to spend the rest of his life with him and the only words I could get out of my mouth were “Are you serious?”. After the shock had settled, I of course said yes!! We had almost another ten minutes alone of the beach before anyone else came and it was the most magical moment of my life! The beach means so much to me and now it has this amazing memory to go with it!
