Sean and Rachel

How We Met

I met Rachel (Rachy) through a few mutual friends out at this chill bar spot. I was 18 and she was 19. I had no idea what I was getting into that night, I would have much rather just stayed at home, pick up some fried chicken, and watch some movies, but my friends forced me to go out. I got to the bar, did my signature, stand on the wall with one of my good friends Cory, and in the corner of my eye I see one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. She some how came over to talk to me, and right there I was hooked. When my friends and I left, I told them about her, and they told me she had a Boyfriend. Well I waited an entire year, and finally got the woman of my dreams. Ever since I couldn’t be happier.

How He Asked

Welp I KNEW she loved backstreet boys, she had seen them 2 times in the last 4 months. Once in Vegas and once in Minnesota. So I knew I had to do something to that effect. I bought the ring and got to work. I recruited 4 of my best friends to help me with this deed. They were nervous, but we practiced and practiced and practiced some more! A total of 6 hours to get it right! Porter&Lukes was the place where we were actually going to do the proposal. They were so kind to let us use the place. John’s Tuxedos let us use some of their white Tuxedo Jackets, which was amazing! I told her parents about it, and she thought we were just going to have an early dinner. She was in for quite the surprise when some backstreet boys showed up!
