We met through a mutual friend. I actually tried to talk my friend into dating him because I thought he was so good looking! Haha. After we met, we just kept coming across each other. We would run into each other at a Huntsville hangout and parties. I also ended up working with his best friend! After we kept seeing each other, he decided we should start hanging out on purpose. We talked for a few weeks. We went out on Valentines Day and he asked me to be his girlfriend on February 16, 2009.
For our engagement, Aaron secretly took my parents to dinner months before our 4 year anniversary and asked for their blessing. They said yes! He made a Facebook group with our close friends and family to invite them to Gramaldis to celebrate after he asked me. He made the group private so I wouldn't know. Aaron told me we were going to dinner. When we got to the Waterway he passed the restaurant and took me to a more secluded part. He said he wanted to take a walk with me. While we were walking he acted like he noticed this little waterfall and asked if we could go look at it. When we got down by the waterfall he asked if I had been happy for the last four years, I of course said yes! Then he said he had something to ask me and got down on his knee. (I think he was a little flustered because he kept trying to put the ring on the wrong hand.) I just kept saying "Oh my gosh," and "What are you doing?" (Not very eloquent.) Then, our best friends pop out from a hiding spot. They were recording my reaction! I wanted to call all of our friends and family after he asked but they told me not to because it would take away from spending our time at dinner. (Really it was because everyone was waiting on us at the restaurant.) We got to the restaurant and everyone was there to celebrate! We had a wonderful dinner. We kept the party going after at Gooses Acre since we had friends come in from out of town.
We are getting married July 26, 2014 at April Sound in Montgomery. We both love being by the water so the venue was perfect. Our colors are yellow and grey. We are still planning a million things for it! We have very supportive family and friends and they are helping a ton!
