Sarah and AJ

How We Met

We first met about 7 years ago when my friend Hayley’s brother invited me and her to a concert and AJ ended up picking us up to bring us! We were from the same town but had never met! I thought he was funny but our lives were in different places. Fast forward 5 years and we were at a local sports bar with Hayley’s brother Dean, I went over to say hi to Dean, and AJ and I started talking! He messaged me 3 weeks later and the rest is history!

How He Asked

AJ’s Christmas gift to me was a trip to San Fran! As soon as we started planning the trip, I told him I wanted to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. He was reluctant and kept telling me I didn’t want to be sweaty on Valentine’s Day. But I was persistent so we rented bikes and rode across. When we got to the other side I couldn’t wait to keep riding to Sausalito for some lunch and drinks, but he pointed up and said “first we have to go up there.” When we got to the top, the views were absolutely breathtaking. We took some selfies and he suggested we have someone take our picture so he asked the couple next to us. We took the normal picture and then he said “one more” and got down on one knee! He said I was his best friend and he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and asked me to marry him with a ring he had custom made from my grandmother’s diamond/ I was so surprised! And ecstatic! Of course I said yes!
