Krista and Ryan
How We Met
We met at work both nurses at a local hospital that shared the same interests. We started dating on Halloween 2014. Love bloomed quickly on our first getaway to New Orleans. We been together ever since. Each day is a blessing knowing the step you take is with the one you love.
How He Asked
We were headed out on a cruise out of New Orleans to Key West and the Bahamas which was rerouted the day before to Jamaica,Grand Cayman, and the Bahamas compliments of hurricane Irma. We still drove to New From Bossier City,LA. I was driving; casual female driver, stopping to see family and relax along the way. He seemed stressed. I knew we had dinner plans but we had plenty of time to make it. Upon arrival at the Nopsi hotel in New Orleans I relaxed for a few minutes before we headed to our “reservation” Little did I know we were headed to New Orleans city park. I’d never been there it seemed so relaxing. I though wow excursion before the cruise to relax; good thinking. When we arrived he lead me to a Gondala with music chapagy and snacks. We floated down a lake surrounded by art. Then we came up to a bottle. Upon closer inspection it was a message in a bottle. It was for me. Before I had time to the he was on one knee with the most beautiful thing ever and the gondala man taking pictures. I of course said Yes!! He had planned the whole thing. Our engaged life adventure started the same place all our other adventures did, in New Orleans.
