Sara and Jonathan
How We Met
Jon and I met on a mutual Pub crawl in February 2012. He was so handsome! This is vital since neither of us were big into going out. It was fate as some would say. We had immediately kicked it off. By March we were dating and by April we had moved in with each other. We have been laughing and loving ever since.
How He Asked
Jon and I were on the last leg of our 3 week Europe vacation. We had planned months for this and we enjoyed every second. Having already visited Scotland, Ireland, and England, Paris France was our last stop. I am big into planning for vacations and while I was planning our days prior to our trip, Jon kept telling me to leave certain time slots open. I thought nothing of a 7 am unplanned plan, so I just left it alone. Paris is a city of romance and it certainly did not disappoint. On a relaxing Monday morning we drove to the Trocadero, which gave us a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower. Jon was acting kind of strange but I didn’t think anything of it. We had the best seat in the house. Jon had finally turned to me and grabbed both of my hands. At this time, I still didn’t know what was about to happen, until he had called me by my full name! He got down on one knee in the City of Lights, the most romantic place in the world and proposed…and of course I said yes!
It was the most beautiful, breathtaking, fantastic thing I have ever witnessed. As for the ring, he had hand designed the loveliest ring I have ever laid my eyes on.
Little did I know, he had planned for one of Paris’ best photographers to capture this unforgettable moment with me even knowing, which made for great pictures. We spent the rest of the day keeping our engagement a secret, or so I had thought. Turns out everyone back home had known his plan and were awaiting our phone calls to tell them the GREAT news!
