Meranda and Austin

How We Met

My wonderful fiancé and I met when we were 5 years old. We were in the same Kindergarten class. When I switched schools later on I stayed in contact with mutual friends. We went to different high schools and met back up at his school dance our freshman year of high school, we were both 15, and have been together since then. Feb 28, 2009. We’ve been through all of high school together, my way through college and this is only the beginning. We’re now 23 and going strong. He’s my best friend.

Meranda and Meranda's Engagement in Cancun, Mexico

How He Asked

My best friend took me on a trip to Cancun, Mexico for our 8 year anniversary. The night of our anniversary we had an amazing dinner at the hotel we were staying at.

We went for a walk on the beach after dinner. When walking on the beach he stopped me and pulled out a beautiful ring box that was a mermaid ( knowing my love for mermaids) with a ring inside! He got on a knee asking me to marry him.

He had it planned for years and told me everything from the ring, to asking for my fathers blessing, every detail. My beautiful gold marquise cut diamond ring is custom made. Everything was perfect ♡ I get to marry my childhood friend and high school sweetheart!
