Tamara and Shane

How We Met

I knew the first day that I saw Tamara that I would marry her and it took two years of telling her that before she decided to give me a chance. We met at an art gallery in Dallas and became best friends, we have done everything together since and know more about each other than most engaged couples probably should. I think that’s what makes us so unique, most couples start off dating, while we truly were best friends before we started dating. When I decided to propose to Tamara I knew that someone as beautiful as her deserved the world, so I wanted to spare no expense when purchasing a ring. The day that I picked it up I couldn’t hold in the excitement anymore, I immediately met with her parents, showed them the ring and asked for their permission. I took Tamara out to her favorite restaurant and asked the waiter to take our picture, while he had the camera in position, I pulled out the ring and asked Tamara if she would be mine. She paused, prayed and said yes, I still feel bad for the waiter. To celebrate we booked a trip to napa and drank wine and kissed all weekend. It was nothing less than perfect, because it was so us.
