Marissa and Jonathan
How We Met
Jonathan and I have known each other since we were about 13 or 14 years old, as we went to the same junior high school. We always had a crush on each other but as life goes on and you get older, people seperate and go their own ways.
In 2011, as fate would have it, we met again at a wedding that we both kind of crashed, as I had tagged along with my cousin and he ended up attending with some of his friends.
We talked and laughed and danced together all night, sparks flew and it lead us to start dating for the next year. We went out to the beach and for dinner ne day and it started raining as he brought me back home. That summer night on June 12,2012 he asked me to be his official girlfriend and we have been inseparable ever since.
How He Asked
We’ve made a pact, God-willing, that every year around our anniversary in June, we would try to travel together to a place we’ve never been to before. After making it to D.R., Mexico, and Jamaica, our 4th new place this year was St.Maarten. We stayed for a week and I fell in love with the ambiance of the island, the beaches, and culture. On June 12th, 2016 (the anniversary of the day he originally asked me to be his girlfriend) he planned a romantic dinner for us on the beautiful beach near our resort.
He planned everything so perfectly, even up to the white dress I was wearing! Lit with the candles just as the sun was setting, and the gem colored waves in the background the scene couldnt have been set more beautifully as he got down on one knee. After saying the sweetest things he brought me to tears of happiness and shock and asked me to marry him! I said yes of course! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal, ring or fiancé!
