How We Met


Our high school was evacuated to the parking lot during a school wide gas leak. After waiting around for hours, I started climbing a tree to pass the time when suddenly one of the branches broke causing me to fall on my back getting the wind knocked out of me. Luckily for me, Hassan saw the whole thing and rushed over to me asking if I was ok. It turned out Hassan was friends with my friend’s boyfriend so we all met up for lunch later that day. During lunch, Hassan bought me pizza and asked for my number. The rest is history!

The Proposal


Hassan’s mom had called me in advance asking if we had plans for October 15th so we could come to Vernon to take family photos. They had invited my parents so I could get a few photos with them as well. During the photos, I was given a bouquet of sunflowers to hold to represent taking photos with my sister. The photographer told me to “turn around and kick your foot up”. As soon as I did Hassan was already down on one knee and asked me to marry him! The “family photos” turned out to be a surprise proposal all along!
