How We Met

Our best friends were dating each other at the time, and invited us both to a sushi festival in San Diego.  My friend and I drove down to meet the guys at Seth’s house so we could all go in one car.  I met Seth at his front door!  He invited us in and made us mimosas.  I pulled my friend aside and asked, “why didn’t you tell me he was so cute?!”.  We hit it off instantly.  He was so sweet and talkative, he made that day a blast!

The following week was my birthday and he delivered a dozen white roses (my favorite flower) to my office! I had never had flowers delivered to me before, it was the sweetest gesture. From that moment on we were inseparable.

Within 4 months of dating we decided to move in together.  I had a new job closer to him, everything was just working out in our favor.  We got a cute little house, one mile from the Oceanside pier.  It was always a dream of mine to live by the beach, and with Seth my dreams were all coming true one-by-one.

How He Asked

Seth and I took a mini vacation to visit his family in Montana.  On day 2 of the trip, Seth and drove up to Fairy Lake (it’s as amazing as it sounds).  We had spent the morning fishing the river behind his parents house, so I arrived at the lake freshly showered, wet hair, no make up, and in sweats.  The plan was to set up camp and hike down to the lake for some more fishing before the sun set.

On the way down to the lake Seth spotted a cute little bridge and said, “that’s cute, let’s take a picture there!”.  As I stood on the bridge, he set up his iPhone on a tree branch and said he would hit the timer button and run over.  As he ran over I reached out to hug him and we posed for the pic.  As he counted down, 3..2..1 he slowly turned toward me and started to bend down to one knee.  I asked, “what are you doing?!” and he replied, “you know”.  I immediately started crying, shocked and extremely excited! Every girl dreams of this moment and mine turned out to be absolutely more than I could have imagined.  The man of my dreams, in the most beautiful setting I’ve ever seen.  He asked me to marry him and I said yes before he even pulled out the ring! But when he did, the tears came back. It was the exact ring I had wanted.  He then stood up and shouted “WE’RE ENGAGED!” toward his phone. He had been recording the entire moment!  That moment will forever be on my mind and in my heart.
