The future Mr. and Mrs. Smith tell us how their wedding proposal went down:
We met each other in the dorms our first year at Old Dominion University. Move-in day was about a week before classes began, so everyone took this time as an opportunity to get to know each other. Richie was always shy and didn’t really say too much to anyone; I was the complete opposite.
One day a group of people, including Richie and me, were watching a movie together. I decided that I wanted to get a laugh or some type of reaction out of him, so I slipped a bottle of soda under his butt as he was about to sit down. We’ve been best friends ever since.
Almost four years later, we were planning a trip to the beach with a group of friends for the Fourth of July. Every single one of my friends ended up bailing on us the day before we were supposed to leave, but I had already booked our room on my credit card. Surprisingly, I was still in a good mood and when we got to the beach, everything was PERFECT. The weather was amazing, and it was pretty late so Richie and I basically had the beach to ourselves. I started playing around and got down on one knee and said “there’s only one thing that could make tonight any more perfect” and fake proposed. He pulled me up with a huge smile and we continued down the beach laughing. About ten paces later he got down on one knee and said “seriously, there IS only one thing that could make this night more perfect.” I thought he was joking and started to pull him up off the ground…until he pulled out a ring and asked me the question every girl dreams of hearing: “Will you marry me?”
