Amanda and Tevia

188A9040How We Met: We met while I was going to school in Hawaii, my best friend’s cousin was friends with him and we had invited them over for an evening to hang out.

The moment I heard him introduce himself and talk I knew I was going to marry him.

How He Asked: It was his sisters graduation so all the family was visiting.

They had planned to do family pictures and only a few of his siblings knew what he was planning. He stepped out from the line and  thanked them for letting me be in the pictures even though I was officially in the family yet. After that, he took my hand and most of what he said was clouded by the beating I felt in my heart, the tears in his eyes, and my shaking hands.

He pulled out the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen and asked me to be his for eternity.
