Samantha and Steven
How We Met
Steven and I met online 3 years ago – shout out to OK Cupid! We started texting when he was still living in San Francisco, and met a a couple of months later when he moved to Austin. After the first date, we were pretty much inseparable. He asked me to be his girlfriend 1 month after we met and asked me to be his wife almost 3 years later. We’re shooting for a wedding in Connecticut (where he’s from) in August, 2015.
How He Asked
There are many special places to us in Austin, but to dog park near our house holds special meaning as this is where we started our family together. Steven hurried me to the park with our cattle dog, Merle, and whisked me to a table near the back (that was surprisingly empty). He told me that Merle wasn’t the only reason we were at the park that day and took my hands. He told me how much he loves me and how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, then he got down on his knee and asked me to be his wife! I immediately said yes! That wasn’t the only surprise though, he has asked me friend Andrea to snap photos of the entire thing! Such a sweet memory.
