Samantha and Jesse

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Blue Marsh National Recreation Lake

How We Met

September 2013 Jesse began to work at Redner’s Warehouse Markets. Little did he know that the girl who trained him would be the girl he would spend the rest of his life with.

As time went on feelings started growing I started asking him to help me with stocking shelves although I was more than capable of doing it on my own. One day in mid-March I just grew the nerve to quickly pass him a note with my number simply stating “Text me tonight when you get off, Samie from the front end.(with my number)” that night around 10:30pm I got a text saying “Hi it’s Jesse, you wanted me to text you.” and at that moment my heart jumped in anxiety and excitement. I texted back saying “I am not sure how to tell you but I like you, more than a friend.” And the response I got changed my life forever.

On April 03, 2014 we both worked evening shifts. I worked until 9:00pm and waited until Jesse got off at 10:00pm because a few days before that I was promised a “Bear Hug”. It was a rainy night and I sat on the edge of his driver side floor of his car and we just talked for hours, we didn’t care about the cold breeze or being completely drenched. But when hours turned into the next morning things began to change. What started as a simple kiss turned into the beginning of young and strong relationship.

How He Asked

On April 04, 2017, our 3 years together, Jesse took me out to Bucca di Beppo for a nice sit down dinner and then we went to Blue Marsh to the Tree we claimed a few years ago when we had one of our dates. We walked around and talked about what our favorite memories were and how much we have accomplished together, we went to the dock to the lake and admired the way the sun was beginning to set. Jesse grabbed me and asked me if I meant what I said when I told him I saw a future with him? And next thing I knew he was on one knee asking me to spend the rest of my life with him. There was no doubt in my mind that Jesse is the one I am meant to be with. Of course I said Yes!
