Rachel and John
My fiance and I met back in 2012 in high school. I was a senior while he was a sophomore. After I graduated, I had moved away for college and we lost touch. I moved back home after three years of being away and we reconnected shortly after my 21st birthday. We began dating in August of 2015 and have been together ever since. In these 5 years we have experienced a lot of ups and downs together. The best part of our relationship I would have to say is us. We are total dorks and weirdos together and it just works.
We got engaged in April of 2019, while we were attending our friend's baby shower. We were up in Fort Lauderdale for the weekend for their shower. We go out to a very fancy restaurant just a mile away from the hotel and it was just perfect. Afterwards we get back to wander the pool deck area. The hotel overlooked the beach and had a really nice balcony that had seats to overlook the water. When we got there, the concierge had helped John out and placed some candles in the shape of a heart, I of course questioned it but John brushed it off. I attempted to go sit down and look at the water when John pulled me into the heart and got down on one knee. This man had successfully pulled off a great surprise for the last two months. Everyone except myself was in on it and after it all happened I realized I should have caught on sooner. This of course is his favorite story to tell during the engagement period.
We got married on September 19, 2020 at Hawks Cay Resort down in Marathon, Florida. We couldn't have asked for a better venue or vendors. This day was absolutely perfect and I couldn't be happier with how things turned out.
