Stephanie and Matthew
How We Met
Matt and I met during my first year of undergrad in Florida. We were in a creative writing class (my major) and our professor paired us up for a group project that was never collected. Matt and I talked the whole time, laughing and trading stories. He mentioned that his mom (the dean of our school) had four cats and he loved them, and I mentioned I had a cat back in my dorm room. He asked if he could come meet her, and we’ve been together ever since. We always joke that our whole relationship happened because of my cat. Everything happens for a reason, right?
How He Asked
We dated all through college, and every year, for our anniversary, we go to Disney World for our anniversary. For our third anniversary, Matt got reservations to Cinderella’s Royal Table because he knows how much I love Cinderella. We watched the fireworks together before dinner and then I got carried away by how excited I was to be there and how good the food was. After our dinner plates were cleared, the waitress brought over a covered plate and under the cover was a spread of rose petals and a glass slipper. That was when he got down on his knee, and made his near-perfectly rehearsed speech and asked me to marry him. It was the most perfect way to get engaged and celebrate our relationship.
