It was almost a year ago to the day. Thought to be a normal weekend visit, Annie hopped on a plane to see James for the weekend – not knowing she’d return engaged! The two had met by chance at an Adult National Volleyball Tournament. After literally bumping into one another the two hit it off immediately. Proximity didn’t phase them as they continued to date while living states apart. So that weekend visit to New York just seemed like the others.
Every weekend they were able to spend together was cherished, but this one seemed to be going perfectly. They took a chilly walk through Central Park and sat down atop a rock to watch the ice skaters. Snuggled in together overlooking the perfect Christmas scene, James reached into his pocket and said “The only thing that would make this a more perfect is if you said yes!” After sobbing and James slipping the ring on her finger – she realized she hadn’t actually said “yes” yet! “So I guess this means yes?” James asked, and with that she leaned over and kissed him and softly answered “Yes”.
The couple is planning a St.Louis wedding next April where they will happily say “Yes” again! Enjoy a few of their engagement photos!
