How did you met: At a bible study kind of like a young adult Christian fellowship.
How long did you date: 2 years
How did he propose? On his birthday I took him indoor skydiving and after he said he really wanted to go to this rooftop restaurant for dinner. Towards the end of dinner a waiter delivered a gold box and said it was for me. In the box was a set of antique cards and, with each card he told a story .A picture of a flower because our first date was at a botanical garden, a clock for time flying , a church because we try to keep God at the center of our relationship, a house to symbolize our future, a nest for starting a family ect. The last card was a ring card and that’s when he got down on one knee. Super thought out and super sweet.
When did you know he was the one? We were friends before we started dating and had a group chat with a bunch of our friends. For me I think I knew he was the one when I would send weird pictures in the chat and he would be the only other person besides me who would think it was hilarious. We shared the same sense of humor and for me that has BAE written all over it.
What’s the sweetest thing he’s ever done? When we first started dating he knew I had a huge thing for Ed Sheeran and his latest album. I also mentioned how in high school I really wished that a boy would hold up a sign saying would you go to prom with me. So on my 25th birthday he made a huge sign that said Chantal will you go see Ed Sheeran with me a held it up.
What are you looking forward to at your wedding? Mainly the ceremony portion to see who cries lol. Most of our friends knew us before we were dating when we were just friends; so they really got a chance to witness our entire relationship grow.
Who’s planning your wedding? Gary and I basically planned our entire wedding ourselves but we did also hire a Day of Planner Tara with from Dream Makers NY.
How did you pick your bridesmaids? Picking my bridesmaids was one of the easiest parts of my wedding. I picked my friends who I’m always laughing with, my best friends, friends from college who I had strong bonds with and, my closest family. My bridesmaids all know each other we’ve all been friends for at least 8 years or more and when you put us all in the same room it’s always a good time.
What things are you planning to seek after your wedding? Long term goals would be buy a house and starting a family. Right now we just want to travel and make the most of being young and married the first place up on our hit list is Bali, Indonesia.
How can we keep up with you and your story?
