Maggie and AJ

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 6.53.04 PMHow we met: One day during my sophomore year of college I was on Instagram and my girlfriend from high school (who had chosen to attend my rival college) posted a photo of her and a super cute guy who she worked with.

I have no idea what came over me but I decided it would be a good idea to comment on the photo!

I wrote: “OMG – hook me up Lindsay!” complete with a KISSY EMOJI. There were a bunch of girls commenting on the photo saying how cute this boy was, and since we went to different schools, I really didn’t think much of it.

Little did I know, my girlfriend saw the comment and decided she wanted to take me up on my request!

At their next staff meeting she convinced AJ (my now fiance) that we would be great together. He asked her for my phone number and the rest is history…

How he asked: About a year ago AJ and I did a photoshoot with one of our good friends who is a photographer. I’ve always wanted to do another one, so for our two year anniversary he surprised me and took me to a beautiful park where our friend met us to do another shoot.

After about 40 minutes of picture taking, AJ turned to me and said he had, “One more surprise…” He said the sweetest words and then got down on bended knee and asked me to be his wife.

It was perfect and every moment was captured by our sweet friend!
