Melody and Daniel
How We Met
I first met Daniel in September 2014 at my church where we were both volunteering at youth group. Not knowing I had already met him a few days before, I boldly introduced myself to Daniel, but decided that his awkward reaction meant he was aware of how good-looking he was and was just stuck up ;)
After hanging out with groups of friends, coincidentally running in to each other at different events and outings, and two months of endless late night phone conversations, we had our first date watching the sun rise over the lake and cooking breakfast. After two weeks of “officially” dating, we both knew we had found someone we could spend forever with.
How He Asked
Daniel and I had been dating for 2 and a half years and I had been asking almost every day for the last year (jokingly) when we would FINALLY be getting engaged. Near the beginning of 2017, we booked a photo shoot with one of Daniel’s friend’s, Magna, who is a photographer to have some nice photos together. Without my knowing, Daniel had been planning with Magna the perfect moment during the shoot for when he would pop the question.
About halfway through taking pictures, Magna asked me to go sit on the rocks that were overlooking the lake to take some single shots of me. Moments later I saw Daniel walking toward me with his hands behind his back, and he got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. As I remembered our first date watching the sun rise, sitting on the rocks, overlooking the lake, I said yes to the man of my dreams!
