Sabrina and Josh

How We Met

While in college full time and working two jobs, I worked as a hostess at a restaurant. After a few years of working together and barely speaking to one another, we went out for dinner with two of our really good friends. After hanging out that one time, we decided to go on our own date, fast forward five years later and we’ve been together ever since!

How He Asked

Around this time of year, St. Augustine is totally over crowded with tourists for the holidays. Despite the crowds and the extremely stressful process of trying to find a parking spot, we decided to go walk by the water towards downtown where the Christmas lights are located. While walking hand in hand, Josh decided it would be a good idea to have a seat on a bench near the lights. After taking a few pictures, Josh asked me to close my eyes as he had a surprise for me… so I did, and when I opened my eyes he was on his knee and asked, “Will you marry me?”. After 5 long years of waiting for him to ask me to marry him, I couldn’t say yes any faster! I was in such shock that he finally asked me, that I didn’t know how to react other than with complete excitement. I asked if I could FaceTime my mom, and he said let’s just walk a little first and then we can call. As we were walking towards my favorite restaurant, I suddenly heard screaming and cheering and was shocked to see my ENTIRE family jumping and waving!! December 16, 2017 was the most special night I’ve ever had, and I am extremely anxious to marry my best friend! ❤️❤️❤️
