Natalie and Christopher
How We Met
Chris and I are High school sweethearts. We have been dating for 9 and a half years now! We started out as friends and I couldn’t get enough of him. He has been by my side through all that life has thrown my way and I couldn’t be more sure about spending the rest of my life with this man.
How He Asked
He took me out to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner in a cute little town by our house where I work. He sprung the idea on me when I got home from work that day- knowing I would never deny the chance to eat there. We went and had a wonderful dinner accompanied by our favorite spicy margaritas. When we got home he began to lead me into the backyard. I was really confused at first until I turned the corner of the house and quickly saw the breathtaking set up on the patio we had just built together this summer. I heard Etta James “At Last” playing from inside our house, he then led me over to our patio and underneath a pergola that he built (that we will be getting married under) with a million candles and flowers and then popped the question! Our family and friends were waiting in the next yard to come over and celebrate! Not to mention, Chris proposed to me with a custom made engagement ring that my boss and I designed together, I am a goldsmith and I had no idea the ring was for me. I had a sketch of the ring hanging over my desk at work for months leading up to this day. When he opened the box I almost fell over, I love my ring almost as much as him. I cannot wait to marry my best friend.
