Rachael and Josh
How We Met
Josh and I met 11 years ago at my first job. I was a snobby 17 year old who wouldn’t give him the time of day. Our lives led us different directions and 9 years later we crossed paths again. We started dating March 20, 2016.
How He Asked
On one of our dates in April 2016 we placed a love lock with our initials and the date on the Junction Bridge and threw the key in the Arkansas River. Fast forward to September 2, 2017. Josh made reservations at a local steak house. After dinner he suggested we go see our lock. Once there I was looking out at the river and he said “We should add another lock with a different date.” I looked over at him and said “Why?”, but before I could get it all the way out he was on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I burst in to tears and said “YES!” There was a baseball game going on in the stadium close by and fireworks went off. He said he didn’t plan that part it just happened. It was the perfect night and I can’t wait to be Mrs. Joshua Russell.
