How did you and your fiance meet and fall in love?
We met in Baton Rouge, LA when we were both there for work (working for the same company). I was based in FL, he was based in IA – we were on the same project in LA for a month, then together again in NC for a month. Somewhere in there, we started dating. It was long distance for 6 months, then Alex decided to move to FL. Looking back, we were pretty crazy to go for it like we did.
Are there any favorite things you do together?
Watching college football, traveling, craft breweries, discovering local restaurants and shops, hiking (when outside of FL).How would you describe your fiance?
Handsome, funny, and caring! He has that mid-western attitude that makes him quick to lend a hand to anyone. He always know how to make me laugh, and his eyes are beautifully blue!
Was there any specific moment when you realized you wanted to marry this person?
Not any specific moment – I was just pretty surprised at how quickly I fell for Alex. Knowing myself and realizing how crazy I was about him, it made me realize that this was the real thing.
Is there anything you have in common that drew you together?
Maybe not one particular thing, but definitely our common sense of humor drew us towards each other.
It was actually a beautiful clear day on the water – we relaxed on the front of the boat, sipped on wine, and enjoyed each other’s company. Alex said “I’d like the Captain to take a picture of us on the front of the boat – let me go back and ask him” – the Captain agreed. After posing for a few pictures together, Alex stepped back, got down on one knee & proposed.
