Where and how did you meet your man?
I met Alex all the way in Oregon! I was there doing an internship during graduate school one summer. I told a friend of mine I was going to Oregon, and he mentioned he had a friend out there. I gave his friend a call once I got there. I didn’t know anyone, and I felt comfortable enough to hang out since we had a mutual friend.
At what moment did you know he was “The One” for you?
I knew after I went through different situations, and he was always there for me. He would go to any length to make things right. I realized this guy will bend over backwards for me.
How did he pop the question?
We were on vacation in Miami and had a couple’s day at the spa on a Saturday. We got massages and soaked in the Jacuzzi. After the staff left the room, I was looking out the window across the ocean, and he came up behind me on one knee! The whole spa was in on the proposal and helped execute it to the tee.
Why is he the best man for you?
He does anything for me and keeps me happy at all times. I couldn’t ask for more.
What are you most looking forward to about marriage?
I am looking forward to continuing the partnership forever and being even more successful than we already are. I am also looking forward to learning more about each other and knowing each other in and out!
