Laurel and Alex
How We Met
I was in a sorority in college and we had a formal in a city that was 3 hours away. My date carpooled with my friend and her date and that’s when I met Alex. We were stuck in the car for almost 4 hours together, so he started flirting with me and I just ignored him because I wasn’t interested. But after spending the rest of the weekend with him, he asked me on a date and I decided to give him a shot and I am very glad I did.
How He Asked
We had been dating for over four years when Alex decided to propose. He was planning on proposing on our trip to Paris but I had figured out his plans. So a week before we left for Paris he changed his plan and reached out to my family to help. My brother had asked me to come to his house so that he and my sister-in-law could take me out for a birthday dinner.
So I went to their house, got all dressed up and they “took me to dinner”. We went to Piedmont Park in Atlanta and when I got there Alex was standing there with a bouquet of flowers. He led me down this path to a tree where there were pictures of us hanging from a branch and he got down on one knee. As soon as I said “yes” mine and his family came from around the corner and surprised me. It was the perfect proposal.
