Sydney and Stanley

How We Met

We met my freshman year at LSU. It was my first semester and Stanley was in grad school. We have two different versions of how we met, but mine is right of course ;-). We met in 2009, but didn’t end up dating until 2014 and the rest is history!

How He Asked

Our friends recently had gotten engaged, and in August Stanley mentioned they were going to be having their engagement party in October. Closer to the date they sent us an invite with their picture, the date, the time, and the location of the engagement party and I was excited to celebrate their engagement! Well October 16th gets here and we’re getting ready to go to the engagement party that we’re about thirty minutes late too because Stanley was taking forever to get dressed. We finally get there, and as we were walking into the room I see my family, his family, and all of our friends. It was actually my own engagement party I had just walked into!

Next thing I knew he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! It was the absolute best day of my life!
