Stephanie and Alec
How We Met
Alec and I have been friends since 2009, he used to work with my best friend. I can’t even count on one hand the number of times he asked me out and I said no 🙈 A little over 3 years ago, he was in the hospital and my mom saw him and told him I was single. That day he texted me and we’ve been together ever since!
How He Asked
Walt Disney World is my favorite place on Earth. Alec and I were just there in September, but I was going again in December with my family. My family and I were in Magic Kingdom and, even though I really wanted to eat lunch, they were adamant on going to take pictures in front of the castle. We were in front of the castle when I got a tap on the shoulder from someone who said “can I take a picture with you,” and it was Alec on one knee (Yes, I burst into tears and was completely surprised!) He flew to Disney for less than 24 hours with his parents to propose to me. He apparently had the ring and asked my parents for their blessing in September, but knew how important it was to have all of my family there, so he waited. Getting proposed to at my favorite place on Earth with my favorite people by my side couldn’t have been more perfect.
