Stephyn and Ronnie
How We Met
Ronnie and I met almost three years ago. I had just moved back to Oklahoma from Dallas, TX and was house shopping with my mother. At the time my mom was a relator, but we were bumping heads while trying to find the perfect house. It just so happens that my Mom and Ronnie, who happen to be a relator as well, were friends. I spent three weeks with Ronnie just going around looking at different homes. After a long three weeks of looking, I found the perfect home to build. At the time, it hadn’t crossed my mind that I had just met my true love and best friend. Ronnie and I had gone to do a final look at the house and he asked if I had any plans the remainder of the day, if not, would I like to join him at a pool party. It just so happens, the night before I was out to dinner with one of my girl friends and we made a bet that the next guy to ask us out we would have to say “yes.” Who would have thought that the next day it would happen? I said YES! We have been together on this wonderful adventure ever since!
How He Asked
Ronnie and I love to travel and throughout the years we have been to some amazing places! Almost all of our trips I end up saying, “That would have been a fun vacation to POP the QUESTION.” But Ronnie always says,” Get that out of your head, it will never happen on a vacations.”
This past Christmas we decided to go to Hawaii with my family. It never crossed my mind that this would be that vacation he would ask me to be his wife. On the day he popped the question, we decide to rent Harley bikes and sight see different Beaches in Hawaii.
Our third stop, The Blow Hole Point, is one of my favorite beaches in Hawaii. We were all checking out the beautiful scenery when I noticed that Ronnie walked away to see the Blow Hole from different angle. When I turned around Ronnie was holding the ring over the ledge. At that moment I freaked out and started asking a million questions; What are you doing? What is that? Is this happening right now? Why do you have that? Does my dad know? Did you ask my Dad? Are you going to get on one knee? Where are my Mom and Brother? Do they know what is going on? The whole time I’m asking these questions Ronnie was expressing his love, but the sad thing is this it went in one ear and out the other. Somewhere in there I’m sure there was a “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” With a shocked expression and tears of joy running down my face I paused; starring back and forth at Ronnie and this beautiful ring. In my head I’m thinking, OMG is this really happening? Crap, what do I have on, so not a cute outfit! This whole time, I don’t think the actual “I will” came out of my mouth. I think it was my favorite saying, “OH YEAH” followed by a “YES!!!” He put the huge sparkler, that he designed himself, on my finger. After saying yes I turned around to my mother, brother, and my mom’s boyfriend were all there taking pictures. It was perfect! One of the most surprising, happiest, moments of my life. (And I’m not a fan of surprises.) A fun fact about the location that Ronnie picked to pop the question is the same location where the first love scene in the movie Here to Eternity was filmed.
Ronnie and I are so excited to announce that we have picked our Wedding Date. December 31 , 2016 is that day I will go from Miss to Mrs!
