Brett and I met on December 21st, 2010. I normally would have never gone on a first date on my Birthday, but we had such great conversation on the phone I figured he must be a blast in person. When I saw Brett standing in front of the café we were meeting at, I was definitely a little taken bake. He was dresses in a casual yet stylish black pea coat and denim however, I did not recall him being on the “shorter” side. I decided to roll with it and just have a good time; and I’m so glad I did! The date was anything but perfect. We decided to nix the dinner idea and go bowling instead; unfortunately, when we got to the bowling alley, there were no open lanes and were told to come back in an hour. We decided to grab a bit to eat while waiting for a lane to open. After an unexpected stumble at the bowling alley while in the midst of trying for a strike (that was him by the way) the evening came to an end but not without an awkward goodbye.
FAST FORWARD 2 YEARS
December 21st, 2012 was Brett and my 2 year anniversary of meeting, my 29th Birthday and, according to the Mayans the “end of the world". Naturally, we had dinner plans with friend for my Birthday then we all went to an "end of the world" party. My BFF came out from Arizona to celebrate so we bounced around different rooms of the party having fun. Every now and again we checked in with the group however, there were quite a few of us so; I didn’t notice Brett disappeared. It wasn’t until coming back from the ladies room; I heard my name over a mic saying I was needed on stage. Having no clue what was going on, Brett always told me he would NEVER propose on a Holiday or my Birthday. He pulled me on stage and proceeded to have everyone sing “Happy Birthday” however, in the middle of the song, he stopped everyone. “This is the 2 year anniversary of us meeting, her 29th Birthday, and possibly the last day on earth, there’s gotta be something better than this that we can do” he said as he knelt down on one knee.
1. I would say my apprehension to commit to Brett was a HUGE hurdle. Brett was very patient and persistent and knew it would pay off in the end.
A modern, yet elegant, ceremony/reception in an urban style venue with brick and exposed beams. We want to incorporate our love for architecture/design into the most important day of our lives to remind us that beautiful things take time.
3. We had a very interesting first 6 months dating... we were both dating other people and would talk about the dates we had gone on. Every once in awhile we reminisce about the past and it is always good for a laugh.
Be patient. . . Love is something that takes time to develop and grow.
